Description

This is the development version of Cura 2 for LulzBot 3D Printers by Aleph Objects, Inc.

Cura is a Free Software program that both prepares your files for printing (by converting your model into G-Code), and also allows you to control the operation of your LulzBot 3D printer. Cura LulzBot Edition is based on Ultimaker's version of Cura available here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura

efilenko added a comment to T712: Cura2 text bug.

Other observation: we don't have Lato files in resources/themes/lulzbot/fonts it could be the reason for scrambled appearance too, if italic Lato version of unavailable on the system or if Lato is unavailable on the system at all it would be substituted by what? TODO: Lato fonts should be added for sure.

I see that font family was changed from "Open Sans" to "Lato", please, look at resources/themes/lulzbot/theme.json file history below. According to image from this page italic Open Sans takes more space than Lato. Could be the reason why we had this issue before but cant't reproduce now. Without good prove this is just an hypothesis.

@mosborne can you give us some more details on how to replicate the process? We are showing 75c in that screen shot.

DaniAO added a comment to T856: Polylite PLA TAZ 6.

Notes from the Profile meeting: On high speed prints- we need to check the retraction settings on the crate test.
On the High details prints- there is some "pillowing" on the square model. It was suggested to either increase the top and bottom layers or increase infill.
On all three settings-we need to double check the support settings, increase the top layers, and bump the bed temps to 60 degrees Celsius.

Some observations for now: On the Sidebar text gets scrambled only when Setting Item shows reset.svg icon. When reset.svg icon is shown Label fonts change in my case to italic, on the older Cura it most likely to bold.

We have noticed that the retraction speed on the high speed profile is to fast for the crate model because it strips the filament. we have had 4-5 prints fail. We also thing the natural Polylite PLA seems to be pretty brittle that the other colors.

Recommendation for Polylite, due to a little adhesion issues, most resolved through adjusting the Z offset, I recommend raising the heat bed temp 10 degrees to 60. This I think will help with ambient conditions. This is especially apparent on Polylite "high speed".

But if layer height is set to 0.01 cura uses over 22GB!!! of RAM


What layer height value you use in this profile?

@patrickaleph Now we can change offsets and nozzle sizes for extruders and also now we can access machine settings action on double extrusion printers. Anything else for this task? I know there are problems in gcodes, but I don't know enough in gcodes to fix it.

Okay, making some progress. I was able to build SIP once Kaleb installed the python3-dev for me. Now I am getting a heck of a lot of build errors when building PyQT5. It seems SIP related. See attached file. build_errors.txt126 KB

Notes for the "High speed", the polylite is looking good on this also. It is of course a little rougher than the others , but not bad at all for high speed.

@TyTh Stringy bottom layers, I would suspect your Z offset is off a bit. Can you post a photo of the bottom of the print?

Wed, Apr 26, 2:48 PM · Cura 2
TyTh added a comment to T856: Polylite PLA TAZ 6.

I'm looking at the standard profile and for the most part the prints look really good. The bottom layer on a couple of the prints are a little stringy but over all I would say they look good.

Polylite profiles "high detail" looks really good on all prints so far. They are taking quite a bit of time to complete (as expected) but are turning out really well!

@mcoronado In the print information text box we wanted to request changing the font color. A few of us find it hard to read since it almost matches the grey background.

Also, what repo should I download QT5 from? What comes up on google talks about QT licensing and I want to make sure I don't end up cloning from a non-free repo.

No, I haven't build it yet. I was just looking though the instructions Victor pointed out to me and realized there was a "sudo make install" in there. Are you saying that the instructions are wrong and that I should be able to just do a "make install"?

If you managed to build it, then there are 2 dirs under build dir: "inst" and "dist".
inst is where the packages are installing all the things, dist is cx_freeze compiled Cura2, that goes into debian package.
They are both runnable.

It looks like I might need to seek out help from IT to make a complete build of Cura since I don't have root access to do "sudo make install".
