  1. Hello everyone, I am having a lot of issues this past days, Cura suddenly is not launching anymore, I was running the v3.6 then it happen I don't know why, same issue with another colleague, then I tried updating to the 4.0, same issue, then tried in admin mode, same issue then erased the Appdata cura 4.0 folder, and it worked, but just a few times, then stop launching again. We also tried reinstalling also.... I saw some posts with the same issues since January or before... Same thing on some french posts.... We also tried compatibility modes... PS: running win10, i7, latest graphic drivers etc...
  2. Hello all - I am trying to run Cura on my Chromebook. I have enabled LInux-based applications n the computer and (through Reddit/GitHub posts) have downloaded the Cura app and see it in my "Linux apps". I have downloaded the Linux Cura 4.0.0 and 4.1.0 BETA versions onto the computer. But when I attempt to launch the app with either of these versions, nothing happens. The constant white "swirl of confusion" is happening over the Cura app on my chromebook's menu bar. From what I've read so far, there are folks out there who are running Cura on Chromebooks. Maybe I'm wrong. But if it is possible to run the Linux versions on Chrome, I've messed up somewhere. Does anyone have troubleshooting thoughts? Cheers, Andrew
  3. Bonjour à tous, Je suis en train d'imprimer des éléments fins et j'ai un soucis, dans les angles l'impression saccade en faisant pour moi des arrêts et retract de fil inutile. Il y a un paramètre qui permet d'éviter que l'imprimant fasse n'importe quoi dans les coins ? On dirait que Cura essaye de faire du remplissage alors que là ma pièce fait 1mm d'épaisseur, que l'épaisseur paroi est réglé sur 1, largeur ligne sur 0.35, remplissage 100% (triangle ou concentrique aucun changement). Une idée ? Ma pièce doit forcément faire 1mm d'épais. Merci d'avance.
  4. hello in the new update of cure in advanced profile system I see that I can modify parameters of the printers as the steps of the engines among others, with this method could mount a kit bondtech in my um3 adjusting the steps from cure? Thank you
  5. I've found that using adaptable layers, faster infill and supports, thicker infill layers ect it can quickly get impossible to find a temperature that works well for everything since the rate it's being asked to extrude plastic can vary so wildly. Hot enough for the fast thick infill means strings and blobs on the surface. Cool enough for the fine surface means jams and under extrusion on the infill. I've set up auto temp so it can go up and down but it can only adjust so fast. So I was wondering if there is a way to smooth out the flow so the nozzle has a chance to heat/cool. Essentially when suddenly asked to deliver a lot more plastic it could slow the print right down so the actual volume of plastic remains similar. Then slowly speed up as the temperature rises. And before it has to deliver less it could slow back down as the nozzle cools in preparation. Does this exist already? Or if not could it work? (I couldn't find it from Googling but that could just be not knowing what to call it)

  7. Hello, I think I have found a bug in the way Cura scales the models. When slicing one of these objects found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2753230 I wanted to do an EUR version and tried to "scale X and Y to 99.57% and Z to 101.3%" However whenever doing that it scales also other Axis or ...welll... hard to explain - generally scales incorrect values/axis. Try by yourself. Tested on Cura 4.0 x64 for Windows and Cura 4.1 x64 Beta - the result is the same. I worked it around by scaling with the size in mm instead of % even though it updates the percents in incorrect places (different axis) too.
  8. Hallo zusammen, ich bin leider total verzweifelt und finde keine Lösung.... kurz zu meinem Problem. Nachdem ich Cura starte, friert es innerhalb von 10-20 sek sofort ein. Danach ist es nicht mehr möglich das Programm zu beenden oder weiter zu arbeiten. Nur der Task Manager hilft hier. Ich habe bereits ältere Versionen von Cura ausprobiert, selbes Verhalten. (von der Originalen Website heruntergeladen) Ich finde dazu einfach keine Lösung... Nun zu meinem System: Betriebsystemname Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.17763 Build 17763 Systemtyp x64-basierter PC RAM: 16GB Festplatte: M.2 SSD Samsung + SSD Samsung Pro (beide schon probiert) Grafikkarte: GeForce RTX2080 Prozessor: Intel I7-9700k Netzteil: Bequit Pure Power 11 600W HW und Software ist aktuell, BIOS etc ist geupdatet. Geforce Experience wurde deinstalliert. Grafikkarten Treiber für im abgesicherten Modus deinstalliert und neu installiert. Keine Besserung. Noch jemand eine Idee 🙂 ? Ich danke euch, Viele Grüße Christian
  9. Hallo, wie kann ich die Geschwindigkeit so anpassen das sowohl Radien, Kurven und gerade Strecken mit der selben Geschwindigkeit gedruckt werden? Bei mir werden Außenradien extrem langsam gedruckt deshalb erhalte ich solche Knubbel auf der Oberfläche... Grüße,Liba
  10. Recently bought a UM3 to go with the UM2 that I've had for a number of years. Still playing around with Cura settings to get the best prints when using dual extruders. What hasn't helped is I've noticed that Cura doesn't seem to "copy all changed values to all extruders" when using that right-click option, so I've had to go through each setting and use "copy value to all extruders" instead which is a real pain. I'm using Cura 4.0.0. Hopefully this will be fixed soon?
  11. I'm trying to use the GCode post processing plugin "Pause at height" and either I'm too stupid to figure it out or it isn't working. I have a 25mm tall test print and I select "Pause at height" which opens with 5.0mm as the default height. I close that window and select Save to file and open the GCode file in a text editor. I see at the top ";POSTPROCESSED" but when I look at the ;LAYER before Z5, at Z5, and after Z5 there are no GCode commands added to the file. If I perform the same experiment with "Tweak at Z", it works as expected and there are GCode commands added to the file (to change the selected parameter). Am I doing something wrong? If so, what? If it works for you, please let me know what steps you took.
  12. Hello all, After a lot of testing and trying I now have got the 3d printed train I made already quite good. However there are some wall artefacts that I do not know how to get rid of. The front of the train is tapered from behind the first doors (hence the diagonal lines there) Over the whole length of the train the bottom and top are drawn in a slight corner from just under the windows inwards. I added some pictures to highlight where the lines are visible. It's like infill is shining through however Cura does not show this. The walls are drawn 4 lines thick. My Quality/Wall settings in Cura: Printer is an Ender 3 nozzle 0.3mm. Thanks a lot for your help!!
  13. I installed Cura 3.5.0 to replace the previous version on Windows 10. After fresh install, Cura launches normally. However, after being closed, Cura won't open again : Cura.exe appears in the task manager (with relevent size : 41MB) but no GUI shows up. Same problem after killing the process and relaunch it. I tried to uninstall and reinstall, it worked one time then again, after closing Cura it won't open again. Log files (C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\cura\3.5\cura.log) are empty for this last opening. Is there another process to kill or something that I missed? Thanks in advance!
  14. Hi I'm using a Rigidbot printer (based on reprap). It has like a 10" build plate. But for some reason Cura keeps pausing when I'm on the 3rd layer, (sometimes the second). It stops in different locations and even if I swap parts (that are the same rough shape) it continues to stop. At first I thought it might have been the cable so i replaced that but still getting the same result. The tallest print I've made is over 8" in height so I know it's not a duration thing... I don't know. I'm not sure what to do...
  15. After an extended beta period, we now present the stable release of Ultimaker Cura 4.0. A big thanks to our beta testers who gave us valuable information and suggestions during the beta phase. Ultimaker Cura 4.0 is mainly focused on the improved user interface and cloud integration. Find the update blog here, and for more in-depth detail of what’s new, find the release notes here. Or just dive in and download it here. As always, we want to collect your user feedback for this release. If there are any improvements you can think of, feel free to mention it here and help us to shape the next release. Please note: Most cloud features are fully functional, but we are making some final tweaks to the stable release of firmware 5.2 for the Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker S5, which will become available in the next few days. This will enable remote printing with your Ultimaker account.
  16. Die Einstellung "Schrumpfungsverhältnis" ist aktiviert aber wird nicht angezeigt. Cura sagt, sie "wurde durch das aktive Gerät ausgeblendet". Was beudeutet "das aktive Gerät"? In den Cura-Eigenschaften meines Druckers (Anycubic i3 Mega) finde ich keine Hinweise darauf. Kann ich etwas dagegen tun? Ich würde gerne die angenommene Materialschrumpfung pro Druckauftrag anpassen können, um mit wechselnden Materialien maßhaltiger zu drucken. ABS schrumpft etwa um 5%, PLA um 1,5% usw.).
  17. I am having trouble getting my Ender 3 to print what I have saved from Cura 3.6. I have tried Cura 4.0 and had the same issues. The preloaded test file on my SD card that came with the Ender 3 has no problems printing. I have tried slicing and saving gcode to the SD card from Thingiverse, personal .stls and help files but none will read on the Ender 3. In the file screen on the Ender 3 it will show an odd symbol at the end of the filename. If I pick one of those files, it will read it and "act" like it is printing but the bed and nozzle don't even heat up and nothing moves. Then after awhile it thinks it is "done." Please help. Thank you, Cam
  18. Hello printers, I'm still using Cura 3.6, so I don't know if this issue has been fixed in later releases, maybe someone can tell me.When I print a part that contains bridged sections, cura always increases the extrusion WAY too much after the bridge wall lines. In my prints I get bad over extrusion right after every bridge line and I cannot seem to find a way to get that sorted out. These artefacts are very visible on finished prints and often ruin an otherwise flawless surface. Does anybody know if this is sorted out with newer Cura releases or how to tune the settings to fix this issue? Thank you all very much 🙂
  19. Hello, I work on two computers so I make extensive use of the cloud backup to easily transfer my custom materials and profiles between them. But it seems that CURA 4.0 does not accept backups from CURA 3.6. When I tried, I got a message: 'Tried to restore a Cura backup that does not match your current version'. Creating a new backup from 4.0 works, however. I've recently modified a few of my custom materials, and it's quite a bother to have to put them in one by one via the 'Import' option. I've tried to check within the CURA file, but I have absolutely no idea where the custom materials or profiles are stored within it. How can I do that restore and where are the custom materials and profiles stored? Thanks.
  20. In cura when I log in with the Ultimaker cloud I get this(attached picture). The "Review your connection" button does not work. Trying to print on a UM3 from a different network does not work.
  21. 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!

  22. Hello! I made a plain in blender i added mods to it to make a box shape object, when i bring it to the software i can see the shape has no upper face, i slice it and on the preview it shows a top face being made, how do i stop it?, all the modifiers on blender have been applied, there are only real faces to print., why does it add a top face, the bottom face is at the bottom, there should be nothing to print except the walls after the bottom is printed, yet it adds one out its own imagination.
  23. Ik heb mijn printer CR10S pro via cura 4.0 geupdated (TM3D_10SPRO_B6.hex, ver 1.1.9_B6 TM3D SSMDN). Dat is prima gelukt. Vervolgens heb ik met het programma Pronterface gekeken of de juiste firmware was geïnstalleerd. Sindsdien kan ik met Cura 4.0 geen verbinding meer krijgen met mijn printer. In windows 10 onder apparaatbeheer is mijn printer onder poort com3 gewoon zichtbaar. Heeft iemand een idee hoe ik dit probleem kan oplossen?
  24. I posted this in the printer forum, but no one there responded. The Ultimaker 2 Go is advertised as having a build volume of 120 x 120 x 115 mm, but I am frequently unable to print objects smaller than that. I get a message from Cura 4.0.0 saying that it is unable to slice because the model doesn't fit in the Go's build volume. I have Support and Adhesion turned off, so they shouldn't affect the build volume. I've attached an example STL file that won't print on my Go, even though it is significantly smaller than the Go's advertised build volume. I've also attached a screen print showing the error message that Cura issues. Is the Go's build volume smaller than advertised? Or is there a bug in Cura? go_test.stl
  25. After 3 months sleeples nights finally I solved the problem. Just watch the video ;))
