  1. Hi, i wan't to know if cura had a way that orientated prints for best possible speed or quality. i thought i found such a thing on the market place, it said it had added to cura (4.12.1) but i can't find it. what am i doing wrong?
  2. Hello I hope someone has had some experience with this and can help me out. I have an artillery sidewinder, I changed the nozzle to 1mm and to be clear IT WAS WORKING FINE FOR OVER A MONTH. I had a print stoppage because of filament runout (it has a filament runout sensor). I did not resume print and just changed the filament. When I tried the next print, the nozzle slams into the bed when I try to auto level it, home, print. THe probe extends and stays extended when it touches the bed and the whole nozzle hits the bed and pushes it down, then raises and lowers again and then theres grinding noises and it fails, with a "probing failed" error message. It was working fine so I cant imagine it's a code issue or even an offset issue, but what do I know. Just all of a sudden after the runout stoppage it went haywire. Some please please help!!!!
  3. hello i'm new to 3d printing; I have an elegoo neptune 2, and I'm having difficulty making the thumbnail image of the file appear on the printer screen with cura 4.8 that came with the printer, but with cura 4.12 no, would there be any solution for that can make the thumbnails with 4.12? would greatly appreciate the help.
  4. Some of my prints stick to the plate just fine, others won't at all. II've tried every base available, I've tried the glue stick method. I've tried starting a print that I know will stick, see that it sticks. Aborted it, and then started the print I wanted. Still won't stick. What am I doing wrong? I am also completely new to this and appreciate any advice.
  5. Hello Is it possible to sende via Python a requests to PHP and get the answer(Data) from PHP?
  6. I'm 3dprinting through my schools lab, and they only have Makerbot Replicator Plus printers. Using Cura software, can I slice and export through Cura or do I have to use the Horrible Makerbot software? When I try, I get an error labeled, "There are no file formats available to write with!" can anyone interpret this or help me use Cura rather than Makerbot to prepare my prints?!
  7. When I slice with the new cura program it gives me a desgination of ufc rather then the old familiar g code . what am I doing wrong?
  8. After going through the print head cleaning procedures and making sure both materials are properly sat in the feeders I am still unable to get both materials to work at the same time. I have tried each individually and they work seperately on identical parts but never together. It seems that the material that starts the print is the only one that will work throughout the print.
  9. I have attached a photo of something I've tried to print on my FALUNSUN QQ S and each time it prints as a solid i.e. no central holes in rod or small twister. What settings should I change to ensure it prints as shown?
  10. Hi Ultimaker People, Is there a way to print the edge layer detail at a finer layer height than internal structural material. for example on a simple round shaft placed vertically on the bedplate, could I print the external surface edges at a0.05mm layer height and then the internal material at a thicker 0.1mm layer height or even 0.2mm height. Obviously internal thicker layer height would have to be a multiple of the finer edge layer height and the finer edge layers would need to print first both the functional material and dissociable support material.
  11. I am currently enjoying my 3D printing life with the Ender-3V2 with Volcano 1.0mm nozzle. Using the Cura, I am trying to print shapes where "support" is essential. I'm using it with the "support infill speed" set to 150mm/s and the "support interface speed" set to 20mm/s. In version 4.11.0 of Cura, it is not possible to set the "support wall speed" separately from the "support infill speed". By setting the "support infill speed" faster and the "support wall speed" slower, you can get a faster and cleaner print. This is a huge advantage for many 3D printer users. Please add "support wall speed" to Cura.
  12. Total newbie to 3D printing here...I can't figure out how to get this file to print correctly. It's supposed to have a large hole in the bottom but the printer always fills it in. I've tried using Mesh Tools and it says that the file needs more extensive repair and I don't know what else to do. Can someone help? MPC_Cap10.gcode
  13. I understand you cant remove the default materials list, but I simply want to remove Generic PETG as shown below. Surely this is possible?
  14. I've been making a lot of part out of PETG for my new 3D printer that is on its way. I live in an area with high humidity and I know that PETG has a problem with absorbing moisture. Are these pictures examples of what happens when PETG has to much moisture in it? In the second picture, the outermost wall is being separated from the other walls. It is like stringing but there is no travel at that point. In the first picture, there are gaps in the print where the walls and layers didn't fuse together. I've done flow tests and heat test, so I believe its not one of those. Any ideas?
  15. On my UM3 , a day or so ago it started 'grinding' filament rather than pushing. It is the same roll of PLA (i have not tried another roll). The tension is set in the 'middle', and I have cleaned the knurled steel pully a couple of times and it will properly load the filament but will not push enough to print. I thought the nozzle might be clogged, but I cleaned it and it flows freely when putting it in there by hand. Suggestions please? I am considering replacing the feeders with Bondtech, but I hate to go to the expense (personal use, not commercial) on retirement type income.
  16. I'm new to 3D printing, with Ender 3 printer, Ultimaker Cura, trying to print Thingiverse leveler X model so I can level my platform. The stl file loads, but I get the error message "Unable to print" after pressing "Slice". Can anyone advise me how to find and fix slicing problems. Thanks.
  17. Hi There, I'm absolutely new and am starting to learn. I've used cura a little and have printed basic parts. But now I'm trying to design my own RC Plane, and am having problems. I need help solving why I have missing layers. I've tried increasing the size of my object but I keep having the same missing walls. Can someone help me or direct me to what I need to do next to problem solve this. I've looked at various forum topics on missing layers but none seem to help me. I've attached the .stl file and pictures from Cura. I really appreciate any help or direction on this. TailVertStabRtBottom.stl
  18. hello everybody i have question about cura setting i have an stl file and i import it to cura and cura says it'll be 11h and its 147g now i dont know if this is ok or somthing in the settings the infill in the picture is 10% i am using a tevo rarantula pro 190/60 and a tree support thank you for help
  19. Greetings Im new to this. Can anyone advise, is it OK to leave additional components outside of the build area or are there downsides to this? My reasoning is build the first item, then move it out of the way then move and build the second item? Thanks vm. Al.
  20. Hello, relatively new user here. I have been having issues on a few different files where Cura will add layers of flat fill to any cylindrical object to close it off. Files have been from multiple places including files I purchased. These examples are finger pieces for a glove. X-ray shows no red, all Mesh Fixes boxes unchecked. Original files were brought straight into Cura or if needed separated in Meshmixer to reorient them to fit print bed (this example). Running Windows 10 and Cura 4.10.0. Like I said this is one example but it has been happening on any file where there is a cylindrical opening. I had an empty bowl shape want to fill half itself in with infill in one case. Only separating the shape into 4 quadrants fixed it. Any help would be appreciated. little_finger.stl
  21. I'm using Fusion360 to draw my objects fore 3D printing using Cura latest version. In Fusion I often draw my "objects" as more than one part that when printed has to be glued together as ONE object. In Fusion I can only prepare the G-code file ONE part at a time resulting in TWO (or more) G-code files. How can I 'add in' more than one G-code file to be printed at a time ?
  22. I'm stuggling to get the Material Station on my S5 to allow me to use the BASF PET CF15 material. I have installed the profile for it from the Marketplace but it isn't showing up in the materials list when i try and install a spool of the material. I've got the CC0.6 nozzle so all good on that front, just can't get the material loaded to no profile appearing on the actual printer. Any help would be great.
  23. I started the course at: https://academy.ultimaker.com/learn/course/60/play/258/expert-tips-for-ultimaker-cura And I wanted to test: Top/bottom pattern: But I can't find: Where to find it: Custom settings -> Shell in Cura 4.10 Any assistance would be appreciated.
  24. This is why you should not leave a PLA-print in your car in the sun. This was a PLA-mould for casting silicones. I had way overdone chemical smoothing, so in combination with the low-infill, the solvent seeped deeply into the plastic, and slightly warped it. So the mould wouldn't fit properly and wouldn't close anymore. I thought I would straighten-out the warping by clamping the mould, and then putting it in a computer-controlled incubator (=precise low-temp oven) at exactly 60.0°C for a few hours. Just above glass transition temp. Not the best choice, obviously. 🙂 In a car in the sun, it can easily get hotter than 60°C, even up to 80°C. So, never leave PLA prints in the car, or elsewhere in the sun. Don't waste time trying to anneal PLA, because that by itself also deforms and warps the part. For car-parts, use PET or some other higher-temp material instead.
