    Poor print after certain height.

    Same thing happened. I moved the z up a ways slowly and noticed it swaying as the threaded rod spun. Pretty sure this is my issue.....and if it’s not, it’s “a” issue and needs to be fixed. Hopfully it clears this mess up.

    Poor print after certain height.

    nothing obvious has changed. The fan turned on after just a few layers and was on for the entire print. I printed two of these, one with no cooling fan for the entire part, and one with cooling fan for the entire part. Both resulted in a mess right after the part began to angle in smaller. If its an electronics thing and time, I am going to print two items on the table with the same settings. If it’s a time and heat or electronics failure, the poor print should show itself earlier in the print. I don’t know what else to try.

    Yes I am using Cura. I haven’t looked at the layer view in software. I’ll do that and see if something stands out. I didnt see anythig. Looks the same at the top as it does at the bottoms. Something is changing near the top. Could it be heat getting trapped in inner parts as the duct begins to close making it hotter than normal? grasping here.

    Poor print after certain height.

    It’s not an ultimaker. Its a coreXY style where the table moves up and down. Its pla, yes. Z axis screws are clean, and there is no filament binding going on. I was going to say it looks like under extrusion to, but I am not sure why, if that’s it, why it’s happening. I thought maybe the fillament was clogging and the extruder was having trouble pushing, but I looked at the fillament and it’s got no signs of slippage. Since i I printed the same model twice, would it be electronic in nature? somethjng taking that long to heat up and begin causing issues? Is this even possible?
  5. Can someone help me with this? i tried printing this twice, once with out a cooling fan, once with a cooling fan. Tried incteasing the temp, tried decreasing the temp. What ever I try within the limits of my knowledge results in the same thing. Matter a certain height the print just turns horrible. It starts out great. I am using 50deg bed, and 210 deg nozzle. How the image is ok, taken with my iPhone

    Internal Supports

    Thanks guy. seems the hollow out object works...sort of. The supports seems to want to start in mid air, lol. No worries, I will do the meshmixer way and add some internal supports manually.

    Internal Supports

    Thats a great Idea, thanks for the video.

    Internal Supports

    Ahhh I see. Yes I set infill to zero. Didn't even dawn on my that its solid, lol. I just seen it as a pumpkin that it hollow. I will try some of these experimental options. Do you know what they might be called?

    Internal Supports

    That is odd, it should have generated internal supports. Maybe a bug in Cura or an issue with the stl file. Is the stl file available somewhere to download and examine? Like thingiverse...? Yes it is in fact available. Here is the link: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1042654 I scaled it up quite a bit...perhaps thats causing the issues?

    Internal Supports

    Yes I tried "everywhere", the image I posted was with that setting, and nothing inside was generated.

    Internal Supports

    Has anyone come up with a solution? Its not on Cura 2.7, and I still dont see a internal support option. I am trying to print this here pumpkin as hollow as I can, but the top will always fail because nothing is inside. A nice centered column would be great for the top layers to stick to. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Cura 2.7 | Beta

    If you open a project file, you should get a question if you want to open it as a project, or if you want to import the models. If you don't, please check the "Opening and savinf files" section in the General settings. The only problem with importing the models instead of opening as a project, it doesn't retain the object placements. I arranged my models to sit on top others (had to disable the auto drop to build plate). When I open a project as a project, it loads all models as they were (stacked up), when I import just the models from the project, it doesn't retain the object placements. It has for me on 2.6.2...has it been broken in 2.7? I don't know if its broke or not, but it doesn't work for me in 2.7 Beta or in 2.6.2

    Cura 2.7 | Beta

    If its not to late, I would like to make a feature request. When importing projects, for me, I just use it for print parameters, and object placements. I only have one printer, and I have custom G-code for beginning and ending. When I import a project from a while ago, its possible I made a few changes to my printer by then, and some of the custom settings have been tweaked. Well when the import happens, I have an option to update current printer, or create a new one. Well I dont really want a new one because new printers stack up as Printer #1, #2, #3, etc....and I dont really want to update my current one because its been tweaked a bit since the last time I created this old project. Instead, an option to possibly "Ignore" printer settings in the project file, and just load object placement and other non printer specific settings?

    Worked well, Thanks.
