  1. The reason I am asking is because the print seems to recover further up. D you use the latest Cura version and is TPLA and the right print core selected in Cura? If so, I'd advise to use on of the provided printing profiles ("normal" or "fast" in this case).
  2. Ok another idea would be to print a narrow but tall single extrusion object in TPLA to rule out any interference from PVA. You said that the BB 0.4 core has been replaced. Was TPLA printed with an AA core and PVA with a BB core?
  3. Hi Andy und willkommen im Forum. Wenn ich das richtig sehe, dann ist das Modell sehr klein oder? Es könnte sein dass es alleine deswegen schon Probleme macht. Ansonsten, könntest du das Projekt als .3mf speichern und hier hochladen. So können wir uns die Druckeinstellungen anschauen. Prinzipiell sollten viele Retractions (das Einziehen von Filament beim Springen zum nächsten Punkt) mit PVA vermieden werden. Auch ist das Aktivieren des "prime towers" empfehlenswert in Cura.
  4. Hi Chris and welcome to the forums. It looks like the nozzle with TPLA had some form of under extrusion in between and then PVA(?) got stuck in between because of oozing. If that's the case, make sure to check that the TPLA spool can unspool correctly and that your nozzle (or print core) is clean. Which printer do you use? Which filament brand is it?
  5. Hi, just rename the file to .zip and unpack it. There might be another way to open it but I don't know about it.
  6. Hi, the version string is just part of the meta data. I don't know if this is internally used to track changes but I would assume that it is expected to bump up this number when you submit a new plugin update. As for resources for scripts and plugins I guess the starting point would be here: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Plugin-Directory And the wiki: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Uranium/wiki/Creating-plugins
  7. Hi, have you tried attaching a working front fan door (with the circuit board) to the printer with the seemingly faulty board? This way you could rule out the circuit board on the fan door.
  8. Ok, I wanted to see if the outer wall is sloped or if there are any ridges on the surface. The model looks good though. I still think it is a printer problem. If it came out right the first time and assuming that you haven't changed the .gcode file, then it must be something related to the printer. I am not familiar with the i3 but if you have the equipment to do so, it might be a good idea to create a narrow but tall test object and print it. Then either watch the printer or record it to see if there are any suspicious movements or sounds when the problem occurs.
  9. Hi and welcome to the forums. This looks to me like a printer/filament problem. Since the print recovered further up, it looks like something lead to under extrusion. This can have several causes. Most likely temperature was not stable or the filament tangled or did not despool correctly. Can you share the .stl file so we can take a look?
  10. Hi, was meinst du damit dass der UM3 die Solex print core nicht erkennt? Wenn du diese installierst, ändert sich nicht die LED Farbe am Druckkopf? Oder geht es um die Auswahl der print core in Cura? Wenn es um Cura geht - ich habe im Forum nach Antworten gesucht und anscheinend kannst du einfach eine passende AA print core auswählen. Grüße, Stefan
  11. Ich habe versucht das in Cura 3.4.1 nach zu stellen, aber wenn ich als "infill extruder" extruder 2 auswähle mit einer printcore von AA 0.4, dann zeigt die Layerpreview trotzdem einen infill mit layerhöhe von 0.1 (vom extruder 1). Wo bzw. wie hast du das eingestellt? Ich möchte herausfinden ob es nur ein Bug in der Layerpreview ist oder insgesammt ein Problem von 3.4.1. Danke.
  12. Hi, did you select the Nylon profile in Cura? Did you use Cura at all? If not, which other print settings did you set?
  13. Ja ich denke schon. Cura müsste eine Warnung anzeigen falls es nicht empfohlen ist.
  14. Hm, ich weiss nicht warum aber anscheinend werden bei dir die Druckkopfwerte ignoriert. Wenn ich beim UM2+ die Werte anpasse, sehe ich direkt eine Änderung in der Vorschau. Schau dir mal die cura.log an nachdem du einen Wert änderst. Vielleicht beschwert sich Cura und sagt warum es die Werte ignoriert.
  15. Hi, this sounds like a bug and I think I've had something similar where rotating and scalling behaved in a weird way. Please add a bug report here: https://github.com/ultimaker/cura/issues
  16. According to the compatibility chart from Ultimaker, this combination has not been tested: https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/49799-material-compatibility But you could start a small test print and see how it behaves.
  17. If you have the equiplent then just record the print so you can correlate head movements with the temperature graph later. To me it looks like a temporary problem since the top prints well again.
  18. @Smooth Könntest du ein Screenshot von Cura posten wo die Teile nicht passen? Und welche Werte genau hast du wo geändert?
  19. Hi, which printer do you use? How do you feed the filament manually - do you heat up the extruder on the printer or through Cura or another slicer?
  20. You can however use the experimental feature "adaptive layers" which is related to your request.
  21. I admire your patience with post processing prints... Have you thought acetone smoothing? ?
  22. Hi, I haven't experienced this error personally but according to the help text the next step would be to contact your reseller. Before you do that, it might be worth a try to update the firmware to the latest version and reset to factory settings. If the board is not damaged, then a simple reset might help.
  23. Alright I can understand that you are worried. I am pretty sure that other users will chime in. So just post your specific questions about printing with the S5. What do you intend to print and which are the materials you want to print with and why? On thing I can tell you upfront is that I personally don't like to print with PVA. I have a pretty humid environment and even though I store the PVA spool in a dry box, on some prints, PVA tends to fizzle and extrude poorly. But that's only my experience. @kmanstudios for example prints with PVA all the time and has far greater insight into this topic. Sadly I didn't get to try to print with the "breakaway" material, but I intend to do so in order to replace PVA. Another experience - Nylon prints like a dream and is a very interesting material. Sadly I don't need it often but when I do, I am always happy with the print results. Bed adhesion is not an issue - except for very large ABS prints. But that's due to the nature of the material. There are some other exotic materials around which have trouble sticking to the bed but these are few and well... exotic. In these cases one can use the adhesion sheets. I try to avoid them because they are messy to get off the glass plate, but when I absolutely need the adhesion for a tricky material, they do the job very well. Dual extrusion is painless on the S5 as it is on the UM3. Depending on what you print, you can tweak lots of print settings in Cura. The default profiles are stable and I always use them as a starting point when I am tweaking prints to perfection.
  24. Hi, this is definitely not normal. Looking at the first picture from your last post, the second print core (on the right) has some material build up. Coudl it be that the materil is oozing from that core during the print? Also, which print cores are loaded? Just open the front lid on the print head and note down the print core markings (should be AA 0.4 or BB 0.4). It would also help if you could find out what kind of filament it is. Maybe there is a sticker on the spool at the back of the printer. If it is PLA, then in Cura select the correct material and switch to the recommended settings (see screenshot).
  25. Ok, that's weird then. Could you please create a bug report on: https://github.com/ultimaker/cura/issues ...and link back to this thread? Also make sure to post details about your hardware.
