  1. Hi everyone, I am on the verge of giving up with Cura for printing TPU. I have a Sovol SV01 printer and it prints eSUN PLA and eSUN PETG perfectly fine using Cura. When I try my eSUN TPU 95A however, I get large blobs at a distance next to the walls. I have tried tuning retraction distance and speed separately ranging from 3 to 6.6mm (limit) and 18 to 39 mm/s (limit) respectively. I have also tried ranging the temperature from 220 to 230 degrees, various coasting and all combing mode settings (also "Max Comb Distance With No Retract"). Printing speed is with 27mm/s
  2. I have added a 2nd extruder to my Ender5Plus and want to enable the 2nd extruder. I looked and I can do it with the general printer but I lose the customization for the Ender5Plus. I looked at the profiles and there is no 2nd extruder in the profile. But after some studying the different profiles it appears it can be done. I got it so I could set the material for the 2nd extruder but could not set the nozzle. Are there any directions or has anyone done it and couple send me the modified profiles? The aim is to have the 2nd extruder do the support material that runs at a lower temperatu
  3. Hi everyone! Looking for some advice on ABS printing, I'm currently running into issues with bed adhesion and warping. I'll try to make this as concise as possible but include as much info as possible. Using a brand new UM2E+ with an enclosure made of corrugated plastic that sits at 95F-110F (depending on the printer settings) and 3D Universe ABS, which specifies 220-250C on the nozzle, 100-130C on the bed, and no cooling fan. I've tried printing nozzle temps from 230-250C, anything above 230C seems to give me a lot of oozing and over extrusion, mostly prese
  4. I have been trying to get the whole Support Blocker -> Per Section of Model Settings to work and I need some help. It looks like this is still a thing in the software but it keeps crashing on the slicing with any model. It used to work fine. Is this still a real feature or does it not work anymore?
  5. I recently purchased a JGMaker Magic printer and one of the features I really like is that the recipe 'loaded' in the printer will have its name displayed in the 'blue' printer LCD display/status window so I know what is running. On occasion, I have loaded a recipe only to discover what I installed the incorrect one about 90 minutes into a 3 hour print. I have looked at the start G Code for the JGMaker printer in Cura and I can't see any command that suggests how this feature is initiated though I am new at this so I'm sure that I have missed something. Any tips or hints on how to create or i
  6. Hello, I tried to add the cloud functionnality to our Ultimaker 3 printer but it doesn't work. The screen "Enabling cloud connectivity" is loading indefinitely. Here are the logs. Maybe a firewall issue ? Thank you in advance 😉 logs.zip
  7. I’m embarking in a patent for a new sneaker related shoe sole but know nothing about rubber type materials not about using any design packages or modules focused on sneaker sole design. I have an Ultimaker S3 and design and print commercial use items using fusion360 and cura. Can anyone kindly share insights in to where to begin. Tx, Tobie
  8. Hi, We printed with PETg, when the print was picked up, the glass plate broke. Get the message from the supplier to use the glue, but when I use the glue the print surface is ugly and unpleasant. what should we do about it? Sander Voorwinden iSense it. 06-42912111

    bonjour (bonjour) j’imprime un profil d’aile et j’ai deux parois au lieu d’une seule de 1.5mm je ne trouve pas la raison merci de votre aide
  10. After 4 months of problem free use, Cura 4.8.0 changed. Now models do not position flat. First image shows Z = 0, but model is ~3mm above plate. When I press "lay flat" tool, model positioned at weird angle, not flat. Also, this tab used to have 3 options (until last week). Perhaps Cura had some changes? 1. Can I roll back? 2. Should I reinstall? 3. Is there a configuration fix? Thanks.
  11. Hello, I don't understand why but, after slicing the 3d model, in the layer preview, some parts of the model are missing, changing the quality have "no effect, kind of", same for scaling up. Checking a parameter named make "overhang printable" help a little bit but the model is still not perfect.
  12. can anyone tell me the best supports for printing this , or would you break it into parts , cura 4.7 thank you
  13. Will be great add a option to save output files like .3mf / .gcode in the same place of .stl. Thanks.
  14. Hi I’m having an issue finding the serial number on the silver sticker. Right after “Serial Number” on the sticker is just a bunch of foreign characters. No numbers. Can someone please tell me where the on the sticker is the serial number? thanks
  15. Hey guys, I’m having trouble printing with carbonfil material and I am getting clogs in the nozzle and under extrusion as the print gets further from the bed. I have tried this material at the recommended settings using a cc print core with the ruby tip, and an aa print core with a hardened steel .4 nozzle As you can see in the photo the material starts to extrude less and less and I get further from the bed until it eventually clogs the nozzle. I have tried a range of temperatures from 230-280 (230-260 is recommended), I have also tried less and slower retracti
  16. Many times when I import a .stl file into Cura, it only shows its shadow on the ground. I've verified the model has good normal, and is manifold everywhere. The scale seems fine. Does anyone have any idea why this happens? Please see pictures, and the included .stl files for reference. The '1_fixed.stl' file is the same as 1.stl, but run through Netfab's STL fixer service, just to see if that would work (it doesn't). I would love to figure this out. I like Cura better than other slicers, but I often can't use it because of this problem. 1.stl 1_f
  17. Hi all, I've been hitting my head against the wall trying to figure out how to get Cura 4.8 to load retraction settings from the material profile instead of the quality profile. I get that the stack will default to values in the quality profile if there are any there, and I seem to have no trouble using temperature settings from the material profile. But no matter what I do--even manually deleting any retraction entries from the .profile file--Cura keeps adding and using retraction distance and speed values for the quality profile and ignoring those in the material profile. Is there a
  18. Hi all, I'm having some real trouble with an amazing statue print. Michealangelo's david. I must have tried 20 test prints but there is always something wrong with it. I'm using various standard PLA. I've got close a few times but there is always an issue with the left arm/elbow or hair detail with the support settings. Even at 0.15mm. 0.4mm nozzle. 55% overhang support etc. Settings are attached below! Can anyone suggest a better set of settings? Please help, Thanks
  19. Hey everybody, I'm brand new to 3D modelling with blender. I've probably bitten off a little bit more than I can chew with this. So I'm making a remix of a Pikachu model off of thingiverse in order to 3D print it as a gift for my girlfriend's brother. I have added the '3D-print' tool to blended and run the 'check all' command. Blender stops responding and crashes. When I try and load the model in cura after exporting as an stl, it says 'increased scale by 10000%. The model doesn't show up in cura regardless of scaling. I would really appreciate some help and teaching f
  20. Hi all, i have been using cure for months now with many upgrade versons, currently with 4.8 it has been fine.. but over couple days it has now become very slow with saving files to either hard drive or the removeable drive, i have looked around for some kind of indication to what it could be, but nothing. pc has AMD quad core 3.8Ghz, ram 12Gb and 2Gb Nvivia graphics. i do well to keep the pc the best perdormance i can. cura behaviour is notmal with no menu lagg or any of that sort. it is onky slow while saving and can even state "Not responding" but if i leave it alone it w
  21. Hello, is it possible to create a support in the body ? Between the Infill ? This would change a lot !!!! It would much more easyer to print diffrent thinks. Changing that infill density is not always nesessery.... Look at the Pictures and you understand what i mean. sorry for my english. Thank you for your help. Andy
  22. We would like to request some ironing / printing features that do not exist in Cura at the moment. They would be useful and necessary for us and possibly other companies. Thank you
  23. https://imgur.com/cYihrQY Is there a setting in Cura that lets you print these lines consecutively and not split up when there is a hole in the body? The sheen is not uniform when its split up like this. If not can someone who is very smart create one? I heard Prusa has this feature coming out soon.
  24. Bonjour. Après avoir importé un fichier STL et traiter le GCODE avec CURA, il manque systématiquement 1,5mm en dessous de la pièce. A première vue il manque les premières ligne des GCODE (an début d'impression). Si quelqu'un à une idée ... Merci d'avance. Olivier
