Is there a way to change the selection of nozzles for your printer. in the drop-down I don’t see some options I’m going to need.
I don’t use Cura much but I think you need to add a ‘new’ printer with the nozzle size. I am not sure you can do it after it is added.
It might be in the top tab as well. I uninstalled it on my computer it doesn’t like the arm chip much.
That’s what I thought, but the setting for nozzle size is actually in a drop down where you select your filament. there’s no option in the machine or extruder settings. Oh and I need an option for a 1.2mm nozzle
Yes, I guess I’ll have to transition to Prusaslicer for most things and just keep Cura for … actually I’m not sure what for, it’s been a lot of trouble recently heh
For the tree supports!
That’s the only reason I use Cura sometimes. With PETG the tree supports just come off so much easier.
Wait… and the sequential print setting in Cura is pretty nifty if your doing a bunch of one item.
There is a way to change it in your machine settings for custom nozzles, similar to @kitedemon mentioned but you don’t have to add a new printer, you can just modify yours. It’s in the same menu that you alter your start/end G-code in.
I also found a video on how to change it CURA SLICER | HOW TO CHANGE NOZZLE SIZE and STORE IT! - YouTube
Yes tree supports in prusa slicer is a cludge work around. I really love the paint on supports and the paint on seams. The speed of the new version is such a big gain to me that it really pushed cure off the computer for me.
Yes the speed increase is very nice. I also love Prusa slicers adaptive layer options, I’m slowly cutting Cura out of my workflow, I’ve been keeping it just for those tree supports ahaha.
I wonder if it has to do with the profile for the B1? I have my printers setup as a custom printer in Cura and I’ve seen the setting before…
If it were me, I would just use Prusa Slicer. It seems like the easiest solution
I do like using tree supports but I was seeing that prussa slicer has this “Monotonic infill pattern” Since a lot of my parts have through holes for bolts this feature should make everything look a lot better
Yes I think I’ll start using Prusa slicer too. I added an Ulitmaker 3 and an Artillery to cura and the option did not appear
The monotonic makes such a nice difference!
I also really like the Prusa slicer supportive infill option for some of my prints.
last few things I’ve printed I’ve used prusa and it’s been really great. couple things i have to figure out about making libraries but so far so good.
but, oh man! don’t let it do it’s own supports
unders support material: contact z distance 0.3 : interface layer 3: xy separation 0.3
It helps, not perfect but better.
I was printing some plenums to change the cooling fans on my B1 to a different kind and just selected automatic for the supports … I didn’t realize it was going to fill them inside of the nozzles with support heh!
Oh man that is a nightmare. I now only paint on supports. It is not awesome at automatic it puts them everywhere.
well hopefully they find a way to put tree supports in. they need some Tetris style programming
Can’t seem to get this to work. The print is always above the build plate or errors out if I set the height to zero. then if I try manually set supports it won’t slice
