  1. Once you set absolute again with G90, then I think you should use G1 E198.5186 to state the extruder position and not G92. Use Notepad++ to insert this code on a small 5 minute job at a layer to check. Also, if your slicer is inserting this script for you, use Notepad++ to check where it is placing it.
  2. I think the problem is that the "LAYER" comment is in the wrong place, and not at the start of the layer. If you look at this example of CURA gcode: ;MESH:NONMESH G0 F600 X66.713 Y38.689 Z1.8 G0 F7200 X66.333 Y40.555 G0 X62.31 Y40.63 G0 X25.674 Y42.11 G0 X24.195 Y42.115 G0 X20.932 Y42.197 G0 X20.933 Y42.048 ;TIME_ELAPSED:3908.320706 ;LAYER:10 ;TYPE:FILL ;MESH:Enclosure.stl G1 F1500 E3249.63696 G1 F6000 X24.262 Y45.377 E3249.7544 G1 X24.332 Y45.447 G0 F7200 X24.123 Y45.447 G0 X22.434 Y42.193 G0 X22.435 Y42.051 G1 F6000 X19.283 Y45.203 E3249.8656 you see that the new layer starts after the "MESH NOMESH" comment where the Z is defined. The plugins insert where the "LAYER" comment is defined. I gave up on the scripts after several failed prints and insert manually using Notepad++. Here is my script: ; Begin Pause Code G0 X0 Y0 ; Insert just before Layer Number at MESH:NONMESH G0 Z50 M25 ; Pause Print - Remember to just press continue button !!!!! ; End Pause Code; Begin Pause Code Adjust the Z for easy colour change.
  3. I think that the problem is with the "LAYER" comment. It is in the wrong place. Here is a typical CURA gcode. ;MESH:NONMESH G0 F600 X66.713 Y38.689 Z1.8 G0 F7200 X66.333 Y40.555 G0 X62.31 Y40.63 G0 X25.674 Y42.11 G0 X24.195 Y42.115 G0 X20.932 Y42.197 G0 X20.933 Y42.048 ;TIME_ELAPSED:3908.320706 ;LAYER:10 ;TYPE:FILL ;MESH:Enclosure.stl G1 F1500 E3249.63696 G1 F6000 X24.262 Y45.377 E3249.7544 G1 X24.332 Y45.447 G0 F7200 X24.123 Y45.447 G0 X22.434 Y42.193 G0 X22.435 Y42.051 G1 F6000 X19.283 Y45.203 E3249.8656 Normally if you allow CURA to insert the script, it inserts it at the LAYER comment, but notice that the layer really begins at the MESH NOMESH comment. I always insert my pause after the MESH NOMESH comment and then Z is restored. Here is my pause code: ; Begin Pause Code G0 X0 Y0 ; Insert just before Layer Number at MESH:NONMESH G0 Z50 M25 ; Pause Print - Remember to just press continue button !!!!! ; End Pause Code
  4. I am printing a hollow globe shape with Cura 4.0.0 and want all travelling to be within the model so that there are no strings on the inside of the globe. Regardless of how I set the Combing mode, there is some travelling across the center of the globe. The best setting is "Not in Skin", but there are still some travels across the center of the model. Is there any way that I can set all travels to be made within the model ? Globe Shade.3mf
  5. I downloaded Cura 3.03 to run on my Windows 7 system. No problems with installation, but Cura crashes just after displaying the change log. I updated my graphics drivers with no effect. For some reason, Cura puts logs both in Roaming and Local ? In Local/cura/stderr.log all seems well until : Fatal Python error: Aborted Thread 0x00001650 (most recent call first): File "X:\3.0\build\inst\lib\python3.5\site-packages\UM\Backend\Backend.py", line 156 in _storeStderrToLogThread File "threading.py", line 862 in run File "threading.py", line 914 in _bootstrap_inner File "threading.py", line 882 in _bootstrap Thread 0x00001694 (most recent call first): File "X:\3.0\build\inst\lib\python3.5\site-packages\UM\Backend\Backend.py", line 148 in _storeOutputToLogThread File "threading.py", line 862 in run File "threading.py", line 914 in _bootstrap_inner File "threading.py", line 882 in _bootstrap Thread 0x00001590 (most recent call first): File "C:\Program Files\Cura 3.0\plugins\USBPrinting\USBPrinterOutputDeviceManager.py", line 88 in _updateThread File "threading.py", line 862 in run File "threading.py", line 914 in _bootstrap_inner File "threading.py", line 882 in _bootstrap Thread 0x00001580 (most recent call first): File "threading.py", line 297 in wait File "zeroconf.py", line 1569 in wait File "zeroconf.py", line 1153 in run File "threading.py", line 914 in _bootstrap_inner File "threading.py", line 882 in _bootstrap Thread 0x00001584 (most recent call first): File "threading.py", line 297 in wait File "zeroconf.py", line 1569 in wait File "zeroconf.py", line 1017 in run File "threading.py", line 914 in _bootstrap_inner File "threading.py", line 882 in _bootstrap Any ideas ?
