  1. After updating to 4.12.1 none of my Gcode or STL files show the Cura icon. Instead they show a generic icon...see attached file where I point to the icon that is used. I've tried going into properties of one of the gcode and Stl files to see if I can change the icon, but it shows that Cura is the program that this file points to. I then uninstalled and re-installed Cura and made sure I checked gcode and stl files to be opened by Cura but that didn't help. Any ideas what happened and how to get the correct icon to show up on my desktop gcode and stl files?
  2. Have to wait 5 to 6 seconds or more to select a model, move it, select material etc....task manager indicates 2% CPU or more with very high to moderate POWER USAGE have to close Cura and reload then it's fine for awhile maybe back to slow again Suggestions?????? Thanks
  3. I'm running a windows 10 PC with Ultimaker Cura 4.10.0 and I have upgraded and chosen to save all of my configuration files. Currently I have two folders in my program files folder and both with files in them. Is it safe to say that I'm going to need to keep the folder Ultimaker Cura 4.9.1 so I don't loose my configuration files or is that removeable? It almost seems like the uninstall of the 4.9.1 version didn't remove the folder. I've included a picture to refer to what I have on my PC.
  4. i have been trying to tune a new filament by printing vases, but cura won't let me print the vases any faster than 10-15mm/s even when i input all the print speeds to about 65mm/s. Does anyone know if there is a feature that forces it to print slower than it's being told to, or if this problem is a result of some kind of protective feature and if it can be overridden? This problem only occurs when i try to print with a single parameter/wall and no matter what i do cura doesn't print it any faster.
  5. Hi guys. I am in need of some help with cura. When I wanted to print this faucet, the base is like a donut shaped and the middle is meant to be hollow. However, when I sliced it, the whole this becomes a solid. I tried poking the filled part but I think it is a solid and cannot be removed. This is not supports as I did not Rick the supports button. Pls help as soon as possible I want to continue printing well. Thanks for your help.
  6. I am running win 10 64, I have a Ultimaker 2+ and have made sure that my windows is up to date. I have tried opening the Cura 4.9.1 download normally and in admin and I keep getting file corrupt error from the download file. I haven't had this problem with any other download of Cura or any other files. I am running 4.9.0 without any issues. What do I need to do to open 4.9.1? Thanks, Dan
  7. I am using Cura and I am now having problems with my nozzle lifting up before it prints. My bed has auto level and everything is good, when I load a gcode the printer and start printing, it will lay down the line then it will lift up making it too high now. I thought it was my printer , so I loaded an older file , and it printed alright. Read something about the error in Cura issues. I am now not able to print anything that is sliced in Cura, is there a fix for this or do we go back several revisions. Thanks
  8. so im pretty new to 3d printing and ive made this row of circles (in shapes of hexagons) in blender, when i put it into cura it closes the circles close to the to when it finishes. i want the entire thing exactly as it looks like on the prepare tab picture i included (hole from one end to the other). also when i try to put in 1 hexagon at a time it still fills in the inner space, couldnt find anything online to fix this. please dont use any big technical words im new to this world.
  9. Trying to download Cura 4.8 from the website but nothing happens when I click the "Download for free" button. Is it just me?
  10. I run MacOS Big Sur 11.0.1.beta on MacBook Air and the beta version 4.8.0 does not start up. 4.8.0 runs fine on previous OSX version like Catalina and High Sierra.
  11. When I open the Cura 4.8 setup/installation window, there is a pop-up that says, "Error opening file for writing." I will include a screenshot at the end of this. Can somebody please help me with this? I am new to 3D Printers, but I do have one that I am going to start with. I am going to use Cura as a Slicer, but I cannot open it. Somebody please help me. 😞
  12. Hi, Urgent help needed. I built my own 3d printer with arduino mega and RAMPS 1.4. Every thing was working fine. But today when i plug ON my printer which is connected to my PC via USB port, my PC suddenly turned off. Plz help me to deal with this situation.
  13. Hi folks I've been printing now for approx 8years+ creating my own drawings in Sketchup and fusion 360, ive updated Cura over the years as and when needed, however i've encountered a problem. I have damaged 2 nozzle my recent software update to 4.2.1 has changed the travel position upon starting the print. On the earlier version of cura 15.04.3 the nozzle was raised slightly above the print bed (start point lower left corner) it then lowered and travelled diagonally to centre of bed starting the print process. The problem i have now is that the print head is virtually at print bed height then travels approx 50-60mm along x axis then travels straight up to centre, it comes into contact with my bulldog clip front left and scrapes the bed glass slightly as the glass is slightly smaller than print bed, however this is not the issue. Is there anyway i can modify the start up Gcode to have it perform like the earlier version mentioned, ie travelling diagonally from start after lowering as it travels. Sorry for sounding long winded, i prefer not to go back to earlier version. The machine i'm using is a Prusa i3, thanks in advance.
  14. Hello, I just had a pop-up saying 'You cannot add more reactions today' while trying to like a torture print here: According to the 'Activity' tab in my profile, I reacted to 11 things in the past 24h. Which seems quite low given the activity on this forum. Is there a way to remove that number cap on reactions?
  15. Hello, This will be a bit of a rant because, well, I think it deserves it because it was quite frustrating looking for resources that should have been more easily findable. I've had my UM3E for about nine months now, and, after a host of troubles and trying out solutions given through the forums (Thanks to all who helped me), I think it may be time to do a maintenance on the printer, and especially check the axles and the tension of the belts. First thing: there's no mention of how to do that in the pdf manual that you can download from the UM.com website. The 'Maintenance' chapter doesn't even mention that you should check it from time to time or links to the relevant pages on the website. While I can understand that one would make printed manual light to save on cost, on paper and on weight for shipping, I'm always amazed when pdf manuals are paper thin, given that mostly everyone has hard drives with storage capacity in the terabytes, and internet speed can usually handle downloading a book sized manual with many pictures and diagrams to explain and clearly show things to the reader. Second thing: I've found the 'Maintenance' page on the website, then I found another 'Maintenance' page, much to my surprise and confusion. The first one is on Resources -> Manuals -> 3D Printers -> Ultimaker 3 -> Maintenance The second one is on Resources -> Manuals -> Add-ons -> Ultimaker 3 Maintenance Kit -> Maintenance The first one has summaries, very short and brief, at least when it comes to the 'Check for play on axles' and 'Check the tension of the short belt', while the second is much more clear, easy to read, and with more pictures to show you what to do and how. Why aren't those explanations directly into the manual? They should be, along with the suggested maintenance schedule, and all the pictures, and links towards the website. I'm among the few people who still read manuals; I know it's going out of fashion; and it frustrates me to no end when such useful, I'd say even critical, information is not on the manual. So, I'd like to understand why there is two 'Maintenance' pages, and why the detailed information is on the 'Add-ons' section and not on the 'Ultimaker 3' section. And also suggest that updating the current manuals with this information would be good, or even just a link to the relevant pages on the website, and that this gets included in the manual for the UM4, when it comes out. Thank you, and sorry for the rant, I really hate when information is spread out everywhere.
