  1. Sometimes your model gets something extra

    Post your latest print!

    Finally I have been able to finish my locomotive shed. All files are available on youmagine. Have a look at my website at: https://zoev89.github.io/locloods/index.html

    One at a time setting in Cura

    My print the bed temperature remains the same. Your hack to change to 65 for each model I guess will work but you do have to baby sit it. I would rather in that case remove the M190 commands (except the first one) from the gcode in an editor that would be less error prone...

    One at a time setting in Cura

    Even if you control the temperature from the printer the gcode contains the M190 S60 for every model start so even if you change the temperature it would at the start of each model reset the temperature to the one in the gcode. The M190 code specifies set to temperature and wait.... Actually Cura should not put this part of the startup code in for each model but only for the first. Or move the a save location (home) and then start the new model with all its settings. But that is thinking in solutions and I might be wrong.
  5. If I print with multiple objects I usually use "All at once" setting Cura. But I was printing a small object and I only needed 6 of them so I could print with "One at a time" setting. Using "One at a time" offered much better print quality since the amount of retractions was reduced by a large factor. No inner model retractions. However while printing the 3th object the printer stalled before going to the 4th object. So it left a large blob of material at the top and the wall was melted in (so basically failing that part). So I inspected the gcode but could not find anything strange. Second time printing it happened again but I knew now the print will continue so it just ruined one object. Today I made some modifications of the printed object and printed 7 of them (in the knowledge that probably 1 will fail so I ended up with the 6 that I needed). This time it stalled at going from the 2nd to the 3th, however I was able to see what was happening it was heating the bed and just waiting until the right temperature was reached (1 degree delta) so basically it could happen each time going from 1 part to the other. Now isn't there a setting in Cura that can control this behavior. Like first remove the nozzle from the printed part then set the bed temperature again (since that is in the startup profile of the part) and then start the next part. By first moving the nozzle away and then set the bed temperature would allow the printer to halt to warm-up the bed if needed. My bottom layer bed temperature is the same as for the rest just imaging what would happen if the bed temperature would be higher for the first layer... I use an ultimaker original with a home made heated bed and used Cura 2.7.1 on ubuntu.

    PLA curling on one side only

    I have auto completion on the phone

    PLA curling on one side only

    If it is airflow relatief you could print a small power software chat the had moves over the object. Or is a brim so it will not lift so easy.
  8. Hoi Rob, Een hoop vragen maar wat is nu precies het probleem? Dat de printkop met een travel move over het object loopt (subject) of is je vraag een andere. Sterkte van objecten hangt van je materiaal af wat je print maar met PLA kan je best sterke objecten maken en die hoef je niet met 100% infill te maken (materiaal vernietiging) Zeker een 9V batterij houdertje zou toch niet een groot probleem moeten zijn. Met ABS kan je layer bonding problemen hebben als je te koud print.

    Help with printing

    Did you measure your filament diameter? Could there be a significant difference. It is difficult to judge from the photo what the effect is. For under extrusion usually you see small gaps between the lines but to me it more looks like over extrusion because I can't see the small gaps but I think I see blobs of excess material.

    raar stl geval

    Hoi Kees, Ik heb een post op een van issues gedaan. Ik denk dat het het 0.4mm line probleem is. Groeten, Eric

    Problem (imho) with STL loading in 2.4

    Hi Kees, What is the wall thickness of the manually added support? Is it 0.4mm? In that case in Cura 1.5.4 changing the line width to 0.39 was good enough in 1.5.4 but in 2.4 it is not. In 2.4 you need to change the nozzle size to 0.38 to get walls of 0.4mm. I regulary use objects with 0.4mm lines. Regards, Eric

    Print is not as it should be

    Could it be that it are rounding errors? When using 100% infill it needs to align the nozzle (which is 0.4mm) into that open area. My feeling is that since the area that needs to be filled is not a multiple of 0.4. Usually you don't need to worry about your object beeing multiples of 0.4mm since a head move is more exact. But if you want to fill 100% then the last path might not fit into the area left. Then the slicer has 2 options, make the path with less extrusion (over extrusion is at risk) or not print it and you have a gap. Sometimes playing with the nozzle size and compensate with flow might help in this case but it is not exact science more try and error.
  13. My 5 cents.. Without these materials I can not say but you could try it out if nobody can help. If you have some PVA material around then you could print a small layer of PVA and then on-top print Extrudr GreenTEC and see how it behaves. If you don't have PVA around just buy some which would be a small investment compared to a UM3 for the sake of testing. And if successful then you already have PVA and if not then you saved a lot of money.

    Sorry I just saw you have a ultimaker 2
