    Add Vertex K8200 on cura 3.6

    Hello, I can't add Vertex K8200 on Cura's new version (3.6). How can I add it? For the moment on cura you can add Vertex K8400, Vertex K8400 Dual and Vertex Delta K8800. Thank you for your help.
  2. Hi all, I have two questions regarding Ultimaker 3. First of all could you explain the function of the build plate heating in detail? As you can see in the picture, which plate is going to be heated? Second one: For some tests I want to build a tentering frame on the build plate. More precisely between the glas and metal plate. For this I what weight ist the maximum load for the printing bed? Especially no discrepancies in x- / y- / z-axis should occur. I couldn`t find any details in the manual. Many thanks for your support. Barbara
  3. Bonjour à tous, Je souhaite imprimer une pièce qui prend toute la surface du plateau de mon imprimante. Je souhaite l'imprimer avec du filament Colorfabb XT jaune et noir (pièce bi-matière) Mais je suis confronté à 3 problème différents lors de l'impression de cette pièce : Problème N°1 : La surface qui ce trouve en contact avec le support a plein de fils qui ne sont pas liés ensemble malgré un réglage de 0.1mm entre le haut du support et ma pièce. J'ai fais un essai en activant les plafonds des support mais aucun changement sur l’état de surface de ma pièce. (Voir IMGP4412) Problème N°2 : Je rencontre aussi un problème de liaison inter couche mais bizarrement pas pas sur toute la hauteur de la pièce... (voir IMGP4409 - La pièce a été arrêtée en cour d'impression) Problème N°3 : Il y a plein de petits bout de filament collé toute autour de la pièce, plus à l'intérieur qu'a l'extérieur, malgré l'utilisation de la tour primaire (voir IMGP4411 et 4410) Réglages de mon impression : Température de la tête : 242°C Vitesse d'impression : 50mm/s Hauteur de couche : 0.2mm Remplissage : 20% Température du plateau : 70°C Refroidissement : 30% et essai à 60% Supports : Zigzag / distance Z : 0.1mm / Densité : 30% Voila pour les explications, j'espère qu'elles sont claires... Si ce n'est pas le cas, n’hésitez pas à m'en demander plus... Je vous remercie tous par avance pour l'aide que vous m'apporterez. Belle journée à vous.

    noob help

    noob here, I am using Cura to slice these but am having trouble with the settings they are small (60mm long, by 10 high 10 wide) for some reason I cannot get it to do a solid print or even fill in the top of the model as you can see from the top down it is a waffle effect. my friend (who has printed a couple of these for me) has no difficulty with them. however he uses a different slicer and before I beg him for help I thought I would ask here. the sides of the hull and turrets are fine, the smoke stacks no so much, but all the tops, decks bridge and turrets are open and waffled.
  5. HI, as you can see in the image until layer 16 it is all ok, but layer 17 is too much surface and the quality is not good. Can specify in cura that i want that kind of infill in the first 16 layers? The original file is form heroforge the blue part is a raft made by cura. Thanks!
  6. Hallo Leute Bei mir kommen die Prints immer nur so wie auf den bildern raus! Weis nicht wie weiter.. kann mir jemand helfen? gruss Saravana
  7. Hi Folks - I have am 2+, have run all kinds of filament (hemp was interesting), but have a chronic problem with the filament curling/not adhering to the print. The pic is PLA 1.75mm; printer head at 210C; build plate at 60C; have leveled 18 different ways - pushed it up, then down, etc. the brim lays down fine, but all heck breaks loose after that. Just put in a brand new 0.4mm nozzle - that's what I got. Anybody got anything? Much obliged, CSB639
  8. I am working on some parts that need clearance between elements of the design. I decided to run a couple of tests to determine what the optimum clearance will be. In printing the tests, the clearance is there, except for the first layer. The first layer spreads out, as it should, to help adhesion. But this spread closes the clearance gap between the elements in the design. Is there a way in Cura or on the S5 to adjust the X axis only on prints that need clearance? Thanks in advance for any help or comments offered!
  9. Hello, So I have this lovely issue with my new UMS5, as I am trying to print on it, it keeps popping up this warning and pauses my print: - this error occurs both with native ultimaker materials and with other brands, - this error occurs both with flow sensor on and off - this error is driving me crazy - this error occurs with full rolls of filament Any tips and tricks are welcomed
  10. Hi all, I'm wondering if there's a way to output the hot end power consumption data after a print has completed. I'm assuming that as the extrusion rate changes throughout the print, so must the power used by the hot end to melt the plastic. My thinking is that if the hot end is held at a constant temperature, then a higher extrusion rate would correlate to more plastic that needs to be melted and more power consumed by the heating element of the hot end. And/or is there a way to output the hot end temperature vs. time and extrusion rate vs. time after the print has completed? Then I could hopefully correlate dips in temperature to increases in extrusion rates. I'm using an S5 and Cura 3.4.1.
  11. Bonjour à tous, Je viens de débuter l'impression 3D notamment avec CURA. J'ai modélisé plusieurs objets sur Fusion 360, en passant sur CURA je n'ai aucun souci en "Solid View" mais quand je passe en "Layer View" je m'aperçois qu'il y a des défauts, comme des manques de matière... Même en passant le fichier dans NETFABB j'ai toujours le même souci 😕. Donc si vous avez la solution au problème je suis preneur ! boite_Glacon_1 v2.stl

    3D printing noob

    Hi all I took delivery of my first 3D printer at the weekend, a Wanhao i3 Duplicator, and i downloaded Cura 3.6 onto my mac. When i did the test print with the supplied SD card it printed in the middle of the print bed, but when i used Cura to print it only prints in the front left corner and cuts some of the print. Tried twice same result, obviously i'de like to print in the middle. Is there something i've missed like a box tick or something? i'm not familiar with code so i don't think that's an option if i have to go that route, and i'm still getting to grips with XY & Z. I'm at a loss as to what to do and hope someone out there can help. Many Thanks
  13. Hat jemand schon den IR-Sensor von David Crocker am Ultimainboard 2.1.4 angeklemmt bekommen bzw. ABL mi Marlin 1.1.9 oder jünger zum laufen gebracht? Bin jetzt am überlegen, wie ich es am Besten bewerkstelligen soll... Variante 1: Transistor an die Signalleitung klemmen, der an den Anschluss Z-Switch kommt, Z-Min und Z-Max wechseln. Variante 2: Über einen der freien Pins am Board codieren und Firmware anpassen.

    UM3E Heater Error both cores

    Hi, since yesterday I get Heater errors on my Ultimaker 3 Extended. The errors occur in both slots and I have tried three different printcores. I have checked both connections of the printhead cable. The print head cable has been replaced a couple of weeks ago so I don't think that this is the problem. Does anyone have an idea what it could be? Thanks!
  15. I'm using the Ultimaker 2, and I changed the value of the printing temperature to 220°C, because it didn't print at 210°C, so all the print setup is like this: Layer height: 0.15mm Priting temperature: 220°C Build Plate temperature: 60°C Print speed: 42 mm/s So with this values I printed the 3D Benchy, but the layers are not looking good. I didn't care that it looked like that, beacause at least it was printing. So I tried to print a bigger piece that was like a cone, with 180mm of the maximum diameter, but it failed at 7mm of height and stopped printing. My next attempt was this piece, that is below, with this print setup: Layer height: 0.15mm Priting temperature: 230°C Build Plate temperature: 60°C Print speed: 30 mm/s But it keeps priting bad quality of layers, so I don't know what can be wrong with the printer or the print setup.
  16. Hi, i know ..again the too small holes story :-( i am using cura 3.6.0 now ....i know there are a lot of these threads already ..with overextrusion ... not round holes ...material shrinking .. but cura does it in every version the same way ...same size ..outer measurements are ok but holes are too small i am writing this now , because i am printing now with a nozzle size of 0.1mm so the overextrusion cant be the problem anymore, and if the material is shrinking it should be also seen on the outer measurements. when i am using the horizontal expansion it also changes the outer measurements. for me it looks like there is some correction done on the outline, but not on the holes? any ideas how to correct this in the right way?

    problem Z axis

    Hey guys, I'm having a problem with my printer. It has started producing inconsistent print errors in the z-axis. The layers are being produced one on top of the other, ie the axis is not going up the required value. Does anyone know how to solve the problem? Lucas
  18. Hello, I am a student who is trying to design a Fidget Spinner for a school project and successfully print said Fidget Spinner for a grade. I am slicing the part using Cura 3.4.1 and printing on the Ultimaker S5. After loading my STL into Cura and changing a few basic settings, I was greeted with the "Unable to Slice" error. I am wondering "What can I do to successfully print my part?". I have attached the STL and the project to this post. Thank you in advance! Joey_Spinner.stl UMS5_Joey_Spinner.curaproject.3mf
  19. when i look at a small part from the top ..i can zoom and view it if i try to zoom from the side the part moves out of the view on the bottom. so i cant view a small part (or a big parts bottom) from the side with zoom ? is my screen resoloution to small (1600x900) ?
  20. I am using SD card printing. I find that if using gcode files sliced by mac cura the printing always fails, while sliced by win cura, it works normally. All the machine settings are the same. Anybody meets the same problem?
  21. Bonjour Comment régler les paramètres Cura pour éviter ces lignes parasite (voir photos) Que j'imprime en ASA ou ABS c'est la même chose merci
  22. Bonjour, Nous avons récemment fait l’acquisition d’une ultimaker S5 et nous rencontrons un problème. En effet lors de l’impression d’une pièce en PLA avec deux trous, lorsque la buse se déplace d’un trou à l’autre, elle dépose de la matière sur les supports qui se trouvent entre les 2 trous et frotte sur cette matière à chaque passage. Avez-vous une solution pour supprimer ce phénomène ? Type de filament et paramètre température : Tough PLA black – 210°C
  23. Salut salut les makers, Aprés voir résolu mes problémes de début d'impression je me retrouve avec un nouveau probléme aprés un changement de filament et dans ma maniére de positionner mes piéces sur le plateau. Le visuel ne me dérange pas plus que ça mais le vrais probléme c'est que les quotes de la piéce est complétement faussé. Je vous présente mon Wall Woble. Ceci est une porte de vapote que je place sur mon plateau en biais.C'est nécessaire afin que je puisse imprimer la vapote en une seule fois.C'est la seule pièce en biais et quand le print finis je me retrouve avec ces vaguelettes sur toutes les parois extérieur de la pièce.Elle dépasse du model d'origine et font 0.1/8mm d'épaisseur sur chaque côté donc 0.1/4 de plus sur la largeur total de mon modèle 😞Un paramètre cura ? Une courroie détendue ?J'ai vérifié la tension des courroies et ça n'as pas l'air d'être ça.Je ne sais pas trop d'ou ça peut venir 😞 Help me please
  24. Depuis 2 ans j'ai une imprimante DagomaDiscoEasy200 qui a toujours le même problème, pour une première couche assez grande (ex: cylindre avec une base de rayon 5 cm), quand l'imprimante commence le remplissage l'extrudeur claque et la buse se bouche, presque plus rien ne s'imprime, le fil se tasse dans la buse puis sinon on attend trop il forme une queue de cochon et bouche complètement la buse. J'ai déjà essayer: changer le Offset, la température de fusion du fil, le fil (même avec le morceau livré avec l'imprimante), utilisé de la laque. Solution que j'utilise, retirer le fil dès que l'extrudeur claque, couper le morceau déformé puis remettre le fil dans la buse. A la fin de la première couche tout rentre dans l'ordre et l'impression se fait très bien dans de nombreux cas, seulement la première couche est très mauvaise ce qui rend la pièce de moins bonne qualité et qui va jusqu'à créé des problèmes d’adhésion et un décollement de la pièce à sa base. En espérant que mon problème soit bien expliquer. Merci d'avance😉
  25. Using Cura 3.6, Anycubic i3 Mega printer, default settings (still learning) and when attempting to slice https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1711097 (the STL with 'fixed' in the name) I noticed that if I selected the .06 layer height I started getting supports that print in the air and missing areas in the object adjacent to those supports. Looks like I just happened to be at a rotation to cause it as rotating the design makes the problem go away. Attached a file with a rotation that demonstrates the issue. Thanks AI3M_Thenatarius_floating_supports.3mf
