About Me

  1. Hello everyone I just wanted to share my discovery. I have been having an issue where some .gcode files sliced on Cura were not showing up on the SD menu of my Creality 3D CR-X. I went and updated the firmware and I was still having the issue. Simple solution is to shorten the name of the file. Example: "CCRX_CRXFilamentGuideV3.gcode" will not show up "FilGuide.gcode" will show up Just wanted to save people a headache if they have the same issue 🙂
  2. Hello, I'm wondering if there is any way to output print settings from Cura to a text file of any kind? As I am experimenting with printing TPU and ABS I would like to print out on paper my settings for every 3d print, so I could establish a hardcopy "Printing log" that I could reference for further 3d prints. I am aware that I could just do a print screen, but it would be super helpful if I could output settings from Cura to txt file so I could manipulate the data easier. Thanks for your help, Regards, Brian
  3. Bonsoir à tous, Il y a environ deux ou trois semaines, j’ai changé ma buse de 0,4 mm pour une buse de 0,8 mm. J’ai en effet changé de buse afin d’obtenir des gains de temps sur mes impressions sans pour autant sacrifier totalement la qualité de celles-ci — bien que l’utilisation d’une telle taille de buse puisse impacter un peu l’aspect visuel des pièces. Seulement voilà, j’ai vite commencé à rencontrer des problèmes non-négligeables rendant souvent les pièces méconnaissables — par rapport au dessin de base et à l’aperçu du slicer. Je ne sais pas trop commen
  4. I'm having some warping issues on larger petg prints. A nice sized brim fixes it 50% of the time. Some times, the brim can't hold it down and it tears. Other slicers have an option to have the brim print for the first 2 layers. Can someone add this to the feature request list. 2 layers are still easy too cut off, but helps pin it too the bed. If there is a work around or plugin though, that would be great. Thanks
  5. I recently bought a prusa i3 pro w, im using it just fine selecting the "prusa" printer in the cura settings. Just one little thing, my bed size is so wrong. I find myself forced to print in a smaller size because of this. I'm new to the 3d printing world and I struggled with other softwares, ultimaker cura 4.7.1 is perfect for my printer and what I want to print, the problem with the bed size is the only thing stopping me from going big. Thanks in advance for you help 😞
  6. bonjour j'ai l'impression de redevenir un débutant (je n'avais pas qu'a pas prendre de distance avec mes imprimantes pendant plusieurs mois....). je cherche a obtenir un remplissage graduel sur chaque coté des parois, or l'option " étapes de remplissage progressif" ne prends en compte que le plafond comme point de départ. y a t'il un moyen de faire varier la densité de remplissage près des parois? merci
  7. Hi All where would I find the amount of material left on a roll??? If the UMS5 has NFC, surely this information would be available?? Several prints, some failures .. others finished. Now I want to start a job which requires 13m of material but there's no way of knowing how much material is on the roll. Thematerial has not been removed since it was installed...
  8. It is often not so clear how to use 3rd party materials with the UM3 or S5 printers. So I want to give some hints and answers to the common problems and questions. Ultimaker materials Ultimaker materials come with an NFC tag in the spool and the printer is able to read the NFC tag and can detect the material and color during the loading process. Internally the NFC tag contains a unique ID which is then matched against a material database or something like that in the printer software. So if you have loaded UM material which was automatically detected by the printer, then
  9. I inhereted gcode models from a previous colleague. However, the models are no where to be found. I'm trying to see if I can export the model from the gcode file. I've tried stl, obj, etc. but keep getting an error message, "There is no mesh to write". Does anyone have any suggestions? How can I export the data to a usable format? This was created with the Ultimaker 2, and we now have the Ultimaker 3. There is no separation in filament types. The current model allows for a dissolve-able filament, while the previous one didn't (to the best of my knowledge). I've also seen th
  10. Hello Community I think I have a quite simple question but unfortunately no answer. Is it possibel in CURA 4.0 to modify the color in the mode "Preview" => "Line type" => "Color Scheme"? Currently the Top/Bottom-Layer is represented in a kind of light yellow. The infill is represented in let me say a kind of less light yellow color. As we are all aware about the fact that millions of colors are available I do not understand why this extremly similar colors have been choosen for representation by CURA. E.g. why not follow the PRUSA Slicer approa
  11. Hello, I have 3 S5 printers, and have connected all of them to the Cura Connect feature, with the app downloaded on my phone, with notifications enabled etc. etc. This is very useful for me, as I've had cases when the printer had some sensor error and it aborted the print, sending me a notification to fix the issue. However, the printers keep disconnecting. They are connected via WiFi, if that matters. Do you guys have any idea as to why this keeps happening, and what I can do to make it stop? When this happens, I need to switch the p
  12. Hi everyone, first post here, Correct me if I'm doing something wrong or I'm posting this in the incorrect space. First of all I wanna say that I have a 3rd party 3d printer and I use ultimaker cura (4.3) to create the gcode files. The piece I want to print is like a flat rectangular frame with thic bezel (and a big square hole in the middle) and i have to print it upright (touching the bed with the smallest face to clarify) due to print space limitations. Here's my problem, I don't want to use a lot of material and the only support avabile on Cura without plugin
  13. Let me explain as best as I can and forgive me if the answer is already found in the forums (it's a big site and hard to put the concept into a few keywords) So I am printing some lego style blocks as counting blocks for teaching grade 3 math. They are usually called "Base 10 Blocks" and built with square blocks. This is a 10x10x1cm 100's unit. The bottom 3mm has a recess for the 2mm tall studs when stacking blocks on blocks. So the majority of the 3D model is solid so I can use the CURA generated infill (20% cubic in this case). Printing on a Creality CR-6 SE.
  14. Hi, I'm trying to print object with thin walls (1.2mm - it is 3 layers with 0.4 nozzle). With default settings, Cura slice it to 4 travel moves. First three are regular print while last is just return to the start position over existing inner wall (I tried to describe it with first image). As I read, the problem is in odd wall number and the suggestion was to try setting "Minimum Wall Flow" value to be great than 0 ("Compensate Wall Overlaps" should be checked too). Actually that did the trick and Cura removed unnecessary last move. The last problem I have are tiny blobs on in
  15. Hi! Using Cura 3.6 with an Ender 3, calibrated extruder, flow and retraction. My filament diameter is consistent. I have issues with zits on the walls. The effect is at it's worst with thin walls. The results are very repeatable, the zits are always in the same places. From what I was able to deduct, it is related to Cura toolpath generation, jumping all over the place. First example is a simple cookie cutter, double thickness walls. The part on top is just a cutout of the same model, printed with the same setting. Much better, but without the interior, there
  16. I am running Cura 3.6 and it says that under material should be the Build Plate Temperature but I can't see it to change. It is checked in the Setting Visibility window but when you hover over it a window says it's hidden and why, but I don't know what it means. Any clarity would be appreciated. Oh and I know I can do it right on the UM2E+. See screen shots for message.
  17. I'm struggling to get a consistent finish on my TPU prints. It starts and ends well, but if there is a break in the wall of the print, the finish is rough and not translucent. I've tried messing with z hop, reducing and increasing retraction speed and distance and raising and lowering temperature and none seem to help. Does anyone have any ideas? Attached are a couple pictures showing what I'm talking about. And my latest Cura settings. S5 Pro Sainsmart TPU
  18. I am trying to get rid of those waves / ripples on the straight part of the outer wall of my print (see left print in image). I have partly succeded in doing so by disabling compensate wall overlaps, however this resulted in a slightly smaller gap (see right print in image). I need to fit the part on a second print, so the gap needs to be fairly accurate. I have also tried different combinations of: - Line Width - Compensate Outer Wall Overlaps - Compensate Inner Wall Overlaps - Horizontal Expansion but I cant seem to get the right settings to have both a clean outer w
  19. bonjour à tous premier post depuis des lustres ..... mon boulot m'a un peu éloigné de l'impression 3D .... je reviens j'ai aperçu une vidéo qui m'a interloqué, une impression non planaire donc avec l'objectif Z qui évolue en même temps que les axes X et Y. j'ai lu qu'il y avait une application? un script? enfin quelque chose qui se nommait nonplanar.xyz il faut également une buse avec un angle aigu pour imprimer les pentes les plus fortes. quelqu'un en sait plus sur le sujet? CURA pourrait t'il être compatible avec cette fonction? évolution à venir?
  20. I’m new to the group and relatively new to CURA, so please pardon me if these questions are too “beginner”: When both wiping and retraction are enabled, is there a way to force CURA to retract before wiping rather than the reverse? Also, is there a way to force the wiping to occur on an inner wall rather than an outer? Thanks in advance for any clarification.
  21. So I designed this lampshade to print on my ender 3 pro with a 0.8mm nozzle and its feeling like a nightmare... I get these few layers at about 21,2 cm that are very slightly shifted to the outside of the geometry plus some change in thickness over a little area, none of this i could identify in Cura 4,7,1. Of course the whole layer looks like %&%& and makes the whole print useless for lighting, Im uploading some pics so you get an idea... I have tried multiple settings, from changing layer height and line width, using adaptative layers, Smooth Spiralized, Maximum Res., Make
  22. Just reserving this thread for questions between plugin users and sharing the latest state of work here. Additionally, feel free to add ideas for improvements, which are important for you as issues to the project page. Looking forward to stimulating and inspiring ideas! Thanks!

  23. Hello all, Pretty much what the title says... I have a Lulzbot mini, using PLA+ from eSUN. After the initial layer is deposited, the nozzle will scrape over the surface of the previous layer, which ends up ruining the print. I have already re-calibrated the Z-offset using the console in CURA (Lulzbot edition). My knowledge of the firmware is limited, so I don't really know what to do at this point (thinking there might be something wrong with the z axis or smth). I am interested to hear what others might think the problem could be. I've learned a lot from this community so far
  24. A new plugin is joining the plugin family! The CATIA plugin comes basically with the features you know from the others (if you had a chance to use them before).[1] The plugin can be easily downloaded and installed on my website. You can find a very basic checklist of what needs to be done here: https://thopiekar.eu/cura/cad/catia/ Enjoy and happy designing! -------------------------------------------- [1] https://thopiekar.eu:5443/cura-cad-integration/CuraCatiaPlugin/commit/9413a9961f0782a152b9bd878adcb23ade342cbb ------------
  25. Morgähn, habe Heute Versucht Cura 4.7.1 auf meinem Macbook Pro mit El Capitan 10.11.6 zu Installieren. Geht jedoch nicht! Gibt es eine Lösung dafür? Cura 4.6.1/3.6.1 konnte ich Testweise installieren ohne dieses Problem. Jedes andere *.dmg lies sich ebenfalls Problemlos installieren. Siehe Fehlermeldung:
