  1. It can't be a hardware movement issue as the old 14.03 pre update Gcode files that I have saved on my SD card still work fine.
  2. I guys I tried emailing the Cura team and they said as I was not using a UM product they could not help me. You guys are my only hope. Any advice would be greatfull or ideas to try as now the latest or last working version does not seem to make a difference.
  3. As peri Gr5's comments below last night I opened both Gcode files in Cura and 'textedit' (word pad for Mac) and checked the all the 'pre print' Gcode. Everything was the same appeart from the speed at which it moved the print head towards the bed. Old 14.03 file - F6000 New 15.04.05 file - F9000 Therefore I sliced another part and modified the Gcode to be F6000, however it didn't make a difference. I then tried F5000 and surprisingly it didn't stick!! It moved towards the bed as it should however it sounded noticeably louder and it wasn't as 'smooth' as it should be. I then tired again with F2500 and it jammed as per the original problem. After this I uninstalled 15.04.05 and reinstalled 14.03, however now it is not working either! There doesn't seem to be any logic to this problem
  4. I far prefer the MAC version of anything over Window for the exact reason 'neotko' talked about. Too many hidden folders and 'rubbish' with windows to clean up after an uninstall. UPDATE: Last night I re installed the version of 15.04.05 that I downloaded and tried again with no success. I also deleted again the custom Delta profile that I had made for my machine and re made it. Again with no success. I then deleted the Ultimaker 2 machine profile as I thought it may of been causing my delta profile to think it was a cartesian printer. However with the UM2 profile deleted it still did not make a difference. (only my single custom Delta profile remained within Cura) Finally I then set up a new machine and selected the 'deltabot' pre made profile. This did fix my initial issue however the movement from the home position towards the bed was jumpy and jittery therefore still not a final fix - it essentially just changed the error to a new one. My settings for my profile are: Esteps - 0 (firmware value used) size - 270 size - 270 height - 250 nozzle - 0.5 heated bed - yes bed 0,0,0 - yes bed - circular GCode Flavour - RepRap (Marlin/Sprinter) Please note that I also tried setting up a machine as per above but with the GCode flavour set to 'RepRap Volumetric' (from memory this option was not in 14.03) and it behaved in the same manor as the 'Deltabot' pre-made one. It fixed my initial issue but when moving from the homed position to the bed it jumped and jittered and did not move smooth as before. Any and all help GREATLY appreciated and any further help or information you require please ask. Thanks
  5. Sorry I forgot to say that I may using the Mac version of Cura and unfortunately once you remove the old version it's gone. Therefor I only now have the latest version on my system. However as I said in the OP I have GCode files saved on the SD card and will check the GCode data for the commands you mentioned and let you know.
  6. I suspected this may be the case. I have already deleted my old Delta machine settings and set up as a new delta. I also made sure the delta machine was the active machine when compiling the print data. However neither of these made a difference. Only thing I haven't tried is to delete the UM2 Machine from Cura and try again. I will do this tonight and revert back.
  7. Hey guys I have been using Cura for over a year now with my homebuilt Delta machine without any issues. At the weekend I updated Cura to 15.04 as I just bought a second hand Ultimaker 2 and wanted to update the firmware to the latest version. However last night I tried to run a print on my delta using the latest Cura and it will not print. When the print goes to start and the print head lowers towards the bed one of my towers stops after about 30mm of travel and the other two continue to move. This forces the head toward one of the towers at quite a bit of speed. Luckily I managed to hit the reset button before any damage was done to my machine as I am convinced it would of snapped the rods if it continued to move. I tried deleting the gcode file and re saving it to the SD card but it made no difference. I also tried deleting my 'machine' settings and setting up as a new machine, again without any luck. Finally I had a gcode file from my old Cura installation still on my SD card and tried to print it, which it did without any movement issues at all. Very strange and need any help I can get as Cura is my far preferred slicer and I don't want to have to change to another if possible. Many thanks.
