  1. Hi, I have got an UMS3 recently and when trying to set it up, I faced a problem. The problem is each time I start the built-in self-calibration program, the standard support material shipped with printers, breaks and the program fails. I have tried this for several time and each time the support material broke before the nozzle. I need a support on this and I am not sure whom to approach.. Please let me know..
  2. I love my Ultimaker printers, but I'm always horrified by how wasteful the filament spools are in terms of packaging material and the super-heavy plastic spools. I throw the spools and the cardboard packaging into the recycling bin, but the more I read about problems with plastic recycling, the more I realize that we need to drastically reduce single-use materials instead of relying on recycling. Ultimaker, please stop using such heavy plastic spool for your filaments - either make the plastic spools much, much lighter, to reduce the amount of plastic waste, or switch to something
  3. I have a Windows 10 laptop, trying to connect to a Creality CR10 max, using Cura as the slicer. Cura will not connect to the printer using USB. i can use any other slice to connect to the printer, no problem. I do not want to remote print with OctoPrint or any other remote printing software!!! I want to directly connect with the Cura slicer. when i slice a file, it only give the option to save to file, I DO NOT WANT TO SAVE TO "SD Card" there is no port options in Cura 4.8 my port in windows is setup as COM4=115200
  4. Hi. I might be in the wrong section but I can't find anyone with this problem elsewhere. After upgrading from Cura 4.6 to 4.9 I can't create and use my own custom material profiles as I had been doing for the past several months. The first image it shows the generic TPU95a profile which can be used for printing TPU but when I choose my custom material (image 2) that I've created it says it is not supported and I can't do anything to get it to work unless I choose a default material that comes installed on Cura. has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fi
  5. Hi! Does anyone has an sTL file of this part? Is the #2137 CLAMP CLIP. Thanks!
  6. I am a Cura user for many years now since I bought my very first Chinese Prusa I3. This is a great software with many interesting features. That is the only software I use for my FDM printers. But I have noticed some glitches and some things not optimal. I have photos and screen shots to explain each of them and I have ideas on how to solve problems introduced. Here is a first list: 1 – Minor, preview mode: A glitch I experienced a few times: one of the layers in preview mode to be displayed on the build plate and not at the right height. Thankfully the gcode is correct the laye
  7. how can i fix this? thank you!
  8. When printing with ABS plastic on an open printer, the following often happens: first the draft shield cracks and deformes, cold air begins to get to the printed part, and the part itself cracks too. If you apply the technique that 'CNC Kitchen' talks about, I believe you can strengthen the draft shield and avoid its destruction. ( "Texturing 3D Prints for Strength!" - Apr 24, 2021 )
  9. Just started to look at the bridge settings in Cura 4.9 and find them under "experimental", but that is the status since 2018 ? Why not move them to a separate / own section ?
  10. I love Cura overall, great software, I have recently needed to upgrade to M1 Mac as my last laptop died. I seem to be having a bunch of issues previewing models if they are even a little complicated and if they are moderately complex or worse they will crash the entire application. I know there likely won't be many M1 users for Cura but if there is a beta program I could participate in that'd be awesome, otherwise I am excited for when there is eventually an ARM compatible version available. If anyone has any suggestions on how I can get it to run better (Like using Crossover and t
  11. is it possible to add the support for the 3dmouse direct in Cura 4.9 or to provide an addin similar. In Cura 4.8, I used the addin "space mouse tool".
  12. I have a problem checking the mantenance in the Digital Factory. When I check tasks it appeared as it were made 2 years ago and I'm not able to modify the date, when uploading files it has no problem, dating them well.
  13. Hi all🙂 Please be gentle, quite new to all this, but was hoping someone could help with setting up cura for a craftbot idex xl Any help greatly appreciated!
  14. Hi, i have a serious problem with our Ultimaker 2+. After moving to a new building it was not possible to print any more - no material came out of the nozzle. After some attempts i solved the first problem - the spring in the feeder was worn out. But the change of the feeder didnt help. After some further examination i found out, that the temperture was too low. I had to change the setting for PLA from 200° to 260° (!) to get some print. I went on with my tries, i changed the PT100 to a new one, so i could lower the temperature to 230..240°. Then i tried a new heater, waht didn't change a
  15. Have been printing some basic objects for a new project without any issues. Now have an object that is basically a plate with a angled cylinder. Printing consistently causes a portion of the top of the cylinder to be fractured such that it readily breaks off or is only attached with a few threads of material. Photo shows the crescent shaped piece at the left of the top of the cylinder as the odd bit that gets cut off. The intent is that the cylinder is intact to the top. Model is created in Autodesk Fusion360 and exported as .OBJ file for use in driving Ultimaker S3 printer - also
  16. I hope I am putting this in the right area. I would like to see Cura be able to switch over to the metric system using feet and inches instead of just the Imperial system (I think that is what they call it at least) anyway I use this for portraits and such and I know there are conversion utilities out there on the web but it would be nice to have that availability in the program itself. Thanks Matt
  17. Our Ultimaker S3 is continuing to have issues with filament from spool 1 wrapping around spool 2 and stopping extrusion. Are there solutions for this that anyone is using? If anyone can point me to filament guides or other solutions I'd appreciate it. I've searched the forum and 3D print repositories and haven't anything for the S3 in particular. Thanks in advance!
  18. Hi all just upgraded one of our ultimakers to a connect 2 +. Had quite a few teething issues with it since install 2 weeks ago but my latest issue is quite problematic. I’m unable to change material mid print as I was on my previous printer. I’ve contacted my reseller who has confirmed this is not an option on this model which seems a crazy decision. Some of my prints run over a couple of days and it’s difficult to judge how much material is left on the roll. not to mention the material wastage from discarding partial rolls. Anybody have an insight on w
  19. Hi Guys Non idex printer with twin heads - is it possible to set the second extruder as a backup in case the first head blocks/jams/runs out of filament? Many thanks!
  20. I started printing with Gizmodorks PVA filament and it says to NEVER print their filament above 200C because it can cause permanent damage and it causes stringing. When printing I noticed that there is an limit that they have put on how much you can offset the temperature of a nozzle (+-25C). Could you make add a setting for advanced mode where you can edit this settings at your own risk?? I am not pleased that I paid orders of magnitude more for a "professional" printer, but have less control than my previous hobby Ultimaker. -Alonso
  21. Today I was going through the Ultimaker maintenance schedule. I noticed that information about the lubrication of the lift switch was missing. That made me wondering about any need to reapply lubrication, especially since the switch is visibly lubricated. An extra section about the lift switch lubrication (or a remark about the lack of any need to reapply lubrication, if that is the case) would be helpful.
  22. Don’t know if my thoughts bounced forward or it’s just people still trying on it yet. there’s heat treating method on 3d printing called annealing, which saids will shrink the print size by 5% and make it much stronger. then than that, I was thinking about, can the annealing just build into the printer, for it don’t need high temperature, I checked the maximum bed temperature, it’s 120°C, and it’s just enough for it. the things need to make this method appear, is just a case, which other stuff already exists. The programming just need a special default setting, increasing the size by
  23. Hi, long time Cura user, infrequent poster. I understand the point of vase mode (or Spiralize Outer Contour as it's called here) - to extrude one continuous stream of material all the way around and up the part. But it occurs to me that, since there's a seam anyway (for layer transitions), couldn't there be two walls as well? Have the extruder move around the inner wall, then go the outer wall (at the seam), and when progressing to the subsequent layer just move back to the inner wall (again at the seam) and repeat. Could theoretically make an entire vase-shaped part with two wa
  24. Cura by default includes G-code for two start lines to prime the nozzle before printing begins. The settings for these start lines are part of the start script G-code for the printer and are therefore unaffected by any changes made in the regular "print settings". I recently upgraded from a 0.4mm nozzle to a Volcano setup with a 0.8mm nozzle and initially experienced that my extruder could not force filament through the nozzle when I started a print - even though I had just loaded filament and watched it ooze from the nozzle. Turns out the problem was that even though I had updated the
  25. Hello! I am looking to understand how the "make overhang printable" feature works in Cura. Any suggestions on how I can get to the source code that implements that feature? I understand that Cura is open source and the source code is available on Github, but I am having trouble finding the appropriate location for this part of the code. I am a PhD student and would like to implement a similar algorithm for my research. Apologies if this has already been answered elsewhere, but I looked and couldn't find anything. Would really appreciate any help!
