  1. My goal was to print a part in nylon with a TPU overmolding. It seems like there's no way to set this up in Cura. When I open a STL file that has two bodies, they are not recognized as such and there's no way to assign an extruder to a body independently of the other. If I open two STL files, their position in space relative to one another is not respected. I can move one body to try to get it near where I want (after I discovered the option to disable "Automatically drop models to the build plate") but it's not precise, especially with Cura's display and perspective view.
  2. Hello, first of all, yes i read tons of articles about this and tried the solutions. i design with openscad then slice with cura 3.6.0, save it on an sd card and finally print with the TEVO black widow. the problem is every now and then i get a layer shift. thirst i tried all the sollutions, but the i started to experiment. - when i start the same print again i get the same layer shift at exactly the same location and the same shift. - when i slice again with cura there could be no layer shift or a new layer shift (this with the exact same setting in cura) so - if it is a loose pully it should happen more randomly.(even if i wanted i could not get a loose pully to skip at axactly the same spot twice at a row) - if it is a defective SD card, it would be solved by changing the card (tried 3 cards withe and without extra formatting) - if it is a setting in cura, it should happen exactly the same after re-slicing withe the same settings - if it is in the printer firmware, it should happen with every print.(re-installed the firmware, and it was the same firmware with the previous cura version wich worked fine) in my opinion it starts to look like a bug in cura, evenmore because it started from cura 3,6,0 and didnt happen in 3.5 or 3.4. now i have a big thing to print (3days printing and a lot of filament) and have to gamble will it print or shift...... and if it shift will it be will it be 0.4mm or 10 cm (both happend, 10cm overnight and we all know the mess i found next day....) anyone any suggestions?

  3. Hallo Zusammen, Ich finde die Community super und hilfreich hier. Leider habe ich ein Problem, wo ich noch keine Antwort/Lösung in dem Forum gefunden habe. Ich habe ein UM2+ Occasion bekommen. Er druckt super gute Qualität. Es sieht aber so aus, als ob er ab und zu Teile des G-Codes überspringt. Es ertönt ein komischer Ton, dann bewegt sich der Druckkopf zu einer weiter unten im G-Code befindlichen Position. Dabei extrudiert er weiter, oftmals viel zuviel Material. Ich habe jetzt den Stromfluss des Z-Stepper mal auf 1000mA runter gedreht, da andere Leute damit ähnliche Probleme lösen konnten. Bis jetzt ohne erfolg. Kann man den Strom weiter runter auf 900mA setzen ohne Probleme? Der Fehler kommt zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten und Layer höhen und ist bis jetzt nicht reproduzierbar. Der Fehler tritt mit der Original Firmware wie auch mit der neuen Tinker Firmware 18.xx auf. Es wird über SD gedruckt. Mechanisch ist nichts zu bemängeln. Zwischendurch druckt er ganze Teile ohne Fehler. Ein Kollege hat das selbe Problem mit seinem UM2 und leider auch keine Lösung gefunden. Gibt es da draussen jemand der diese Symptome wieder erkennt und eine Lösung hat? Vielen Dank
  4. Hi I am trying to print Carbon Filled PA from ColorFabb on my Ultimaker 3 and Ultimaker S5, but I am having some jamming in the print core. I am using 3d Solex Hardcore with an EverLast 0.6 nozzle. The heat builds up in the hardcore, so the filament softens well after the heat break and jams the hardcore up to the bowden tube if the print is left unattended. It is my second attempt, on the first one the Hardcore was new and after some tests was not able to print even with PLA due to a defect in the heatbreak, Thanks to Carl from 3d Solex, the issue had been fixed very quickly and efficiently. This second attempt, I took an Hardcore which was performing well with a 0,6 brass nozzle, swapped the nozzle by a 0,6 Everlast nozzle and started to print. Anyone had the same issues ? Anyone printing ColorFabb PA CF on Ultimaker ? I've ended printing the customer order on a printer with E3D V6 and hardened steel 0,6 nozzle, printing like a charm.

    Vue solide vue en couches

    Bonjour. Je voudrais savoir pourquoi il y a une différence dans cura entre la vue solide et la vue en couches de mon objet ci-joint. L'objet dans la vue en couches est archi faux il y a un trou après le fraisage. Aurais je mal paramétré cura? Objet.stl
  6. I have a strange issue in Cura (3.6.0) when trying to bridge a hole with single layer sacrificial bride: Cora slices 4 squares into the bridge that gets printed mid-air (which is of course not working). Does anyone have an idea what is going wrong here (attached pictures): layer 67 has the big hole layer 68 is the sacrificial bridge (with the 4 squares) layer 69 is the first layer of the smaller hole Test.stl Test.gcode
  7. Hello, dear community! I've been printing some parts with red PLA at 205°C and a 60°C bed. The flow rate is set to 100% at the calibration cube. The rubber band gun was printed at 40% flow and the Lego brick wad also printed at 100% flow, but sliced at another newer computer with cura 3.5.0. The other parts are sliced at an older PC with cura 3.6.0, but it should not overextrude this bad... I also checked the filament diameter in cura an of the Filament, but it's both 1.75. The nozzle size is set to 0.4mm and I am using a 0.4mm one. Is there anything wrong with the PC or Cura? Another Filament also overextruded, but not so bad. Eren
  8. Hello dear community! I bought a cheap roll of filament just to try it out. Then I baked it to dry it, because it was very moist. But now it is not straight any more, there are only a few points where it is not straight, but it disables the flow. Is there a way to fix it, maybe with a hairdryer? I hope you can see it on the picture. Thanks, Eren!

    support soluble en couche mince

    bonjour j'ai des soucis récurrent avec le PVA quand les supports sont trop imposants. je ne trouve plus comment faire des supports en deux matières, c'est à dire, commencer le support dans la même matière que l'objet à imprimer et ne faire que quelques couches en PVA à l'interface. merci de votre aide
  10. This topic is reporting an issue observed on my UM3E regarding some problems I have had with axles and motors falling out of place. These issues are believed to be fixed (unless more issues arise), but input for improvements are sought. Mostly this thread is documenting the observations to provide precedent for others who experience similar problems. Issue 1: Horrible noises from the printer indicated that something was very wrong. When I went to inspect the noise, I noticed that the X axis stepper motor was shaking like leaf in the wind. I turned my unit around to inspect the screws and found one of them nearly all the way out (see image). The others were several turns loose as well. I tightened everything up and the noise/shaking stopped. I considered using some thread lock on those screws, but opted not to without consulting the forums. Issue 2: The axle-rod fell out. See picture. The axle-rod in the Y direction fell out of the black press-fit belt linker. This issue occurred after Issue 1, so I suspect they are related. This appears to be a common issue with UM3E, as evidenced by the ease with which I found others (1 2), a FBRC8 guide (3), and a DIY part (4). The axle was easy to reinsert. Afterwards, I greased up everything I could in case that was a contributing problem. Issue 3: The magnetic fan door no longer closes. It is difficult to tell if this is related to the vibration issues. Without knowing, I am adding it here. The metal hinge of the door seems to be bowed outward. I can find no obvious cause for this. I attempted removing the silicone seals (which are all crusty and burnt to hell on mine) to see if that was causing the door to close improperly. Nope. I then attempted to close the door with both print cores removed. Again, nope. Bending the metal gently counter clockwise appeared to help. The door would close, but within a few minutes, fall open again. I chose not to use much force in this bending to prevent damage to my printer or my warranty. A semipermanent solution has been found: a rubber band, which is doing an excellent job of holding the thing together. As stated before, these problems are "solved", but input is welcome. Why did this suddenly start falling apart? Will my fixes be sustainable? What should I expect in the future? Is this a grand conspiracy for the printer to fall apart 5 days before my warranty expires?
  11. Hello, I'm coming up to you about an issue I have with a UM3E that I tried to use after few months of inactivity. I installed the last firmware normally via the printer but, when I wanted to start a print, the UM3E failed during auto levelling step. Actually, the build plate stops at 10 centimeters from printheads, even if I try to level it manually. I tried every "normal" ways to solve the problem, user reboot, factory reboot, second setup of the firmware, via USB this time… nothing changed. The printer acts as if it was an UM3 not Extended, but it is… Every print I launch is considered too big for the printer, even the smallest thing. Maybe there is a conflict between Cura, where the printer is correctly set, and the firmware of the printer, set on the UM3 height instead of UM3E height. I really don't know how to check in the firmware and if it is possible to fix my UM3E… Please, help ! Build plate "raised"
  12. Hello, I would want to make my printer heat the extruder whiles levelling the bed. The problem I have that if I write "M109 S200 " in the start Gcode after the G29 command nothing will happen since cura already heats the extruder/ bed before running the start Gcode. I have somewhat fixed it by setting the initial layer temp of the extruder to 50 degrees, so the printer first heats the extruder to 50 degrees then needs to wait for it to stabilize, then runs the start Gcode with the G29 followed by an M109 command. Even though this works it isn't exactly good since I need to wait for it to stabilize at 50 degrees. It is also annoying needing to change the temperature in the start Gcode instead of in the normal settings. So is there any way to remove the M109 command in the pre-prestart gcode so that it triggers after the G29 command? Thanks in advance!
  13. bonjour avec la dernière version de cura (3.6beta) en choisissant une imprimante S5, je n'arrive pas à choisir le filament PVA sur du PC ou PLA .... cura fait référence au tableau de compatibilité cura refuse le PVA avec le PLA alors que le tableau l’autorise. quelqu’un a une idée ?
  14. Hi @all, I have a problem with using the Breakaway support with Cura 3.5.0 - it generates lines that intersect the model, as in the following screenshot: Does anyone have any idea what could cause this, and how to fix it?
  15. Hallo und Moin, nun ist es passiert. Mein Cura 3.4.1 ist abgestürzt und gab die Fehlermeldung aus das es Reconfiguriert wird. OK dachte ich mir so... Drücke auf den empfohlenen Butteon das alle Einstellungen und Profile gesichert werden. Cura hat sich dann neu installiert doch ich finde in den Cura Files keine Backup. Weder im CURA Folder (Arbeite mit MAC) noch auf der gesamten Platte. Es wäre wirklich ätzend wenn die erarbeiteten Material Profile weg wären. Hat jemand einen Tipp ? Mein Lieferant wusste auch nicht weiter und die im Internet angegebenen Pfade sind nicht vorhanden. Viele Grüße Michael
  16. Quick post to describe a problem I had and the solution I found, hoping it can help somebody else. Following a reinstall of my Linux (from Mint to Manjaro) and the launching of Cura, I encountered some issues with the backup of my profiles (at this point I probably messed up with the files). However, after deleting all config/personnal files from the /home and reimporting clean .curaprofile files, my prints were inconsistent, weak, porous, almost flexible and transparent, and sometimes broke when I tried to unstick them from the heated bed: left bad print, right correct print from another computer with same model, same material, same settings. After opening the gcode of each of these prints, it appeared that the bad one had severe underextrusion, and all the values (filament used and "E" value after G1 codes) were lower by a factor 0.377039. This value appears to be (1.75mm / 2.85mm)²: somehow, Cura considered that my filament was 2.85mm instead of the 1.75mm specified in the extruder settings. The filament diameter wasn't mentioned anywhere else (material or profile). To solve this, I erased the old 1.75mm in the extruder settings (which didn't seemed to be taken into account) and rewrite it.

    Objekt liegt nicht auf dem Druckbett

    Hallo zusammen, Ich habe ein relativ grosses Teil dass ich drucken möchte. Dazu musste ich es leicht drehen, dass alle passt. Nur, wenn die Z-Achse auf 0 mm steht, ist aber das Objekt nicht auf der Platte. Ist das bekannt, denn bei kleineren Objekten habe ich das nicht. Danke für Eure Hilfe im Voraus. Viele Grüsse Willi
  19. Looking for complete guide for changing TFM coupler on a UM2+, existing or if someone is willing to make one. All I can find are old ones for the old printhead. Had some bad luck with leakage caused by screwing it to loosely and I think I misshaped it a second time by screwing it to tight. When I tried to pull the PTFE coupler out of the steel coupler I had to use a plier and found out that the threaded, thinner, part of the steel coupler is ultra thin ? I am using the TFK2K from 3D Solex (PTFE coupler and I2K chip). But since I'm thinking of abandoning printing at temperatures above 260° maybe I'm better of with standard TFM coupler?
  20. Hallo zuammen, ich habe das Problem das nicht alle Parameter aus der Cura Software vom Drucker übernommen werden. Zum Beispiel werden Druck Geschwindigkeit und Lüfter Geschwindigkeit nicht übernommen. Druck Geschwindigkeit ist bei jedem Start immer auf 100 und der Lüfter ist aus. Allerdings werden z. B. Hotend und Bed Temperaturen passend übernommen. Ich habe schon mit der gcode Variante Marlin und ReRap getestet, aber leider ohne Erfolg. Woran kann das liegen? Ich nutze die Cura v3.5.1 und den Drucker Anycubic I3 Mega
  21. Hallo, ich habe ein, für mich, seltsames Verhalten von Cura, wenn ich ein zweites Bauteil auf die Druckplatte bringe. Ich versuche momentan Flugzeugflächen zu drucken, was auch sehr gut funktioniert, solange ich immer nur ein Teil auf der Druckplatte habe. Sobald ich aber ein zweites Bauteil lade, werden beim slicen die inneren Strukturen nicht mehr beachtet, obwohl jedes Teil einzeln ohne Probleme funktioniert. Hier noch zwei Bilder mit den Unterschieden. Hat jemand eine Idee woran das liegen kann?

    UM3 print head

    Where can I find some documentation on how to disassembly UM3 print head? I need to check if my sound come from it. Thanks for you help. Sound.zip
  23. Guten Morgen liebes Forum! Ich bin der neue lach. Habe mir einen Ultimaker 2 Extended + zugelegt und gestern über Cura 3.5 die neueste Firmware gezogen. Nun meine Probleme -.- beim „ersten Startup“ kracht mir das Brett gegen die nozzle oder es erscheinen die Fehler er 05 - 07 ... habe mich dann durch den Einrichtung Assistenten gemogelt um in Maintrance zu kommen. Nur leider erfolglos. Er macht alles seitenverkehrt obwohl die ganzen Sensoren links sind fährt die Kiste nun nach rechts voll gegen die Wände auch das Bett fährt entweder gegen den Boden oder voll gegen die nozzle. Habt be ihr einen Rat für mich wie ich das wieder hinbekomme das es läuft ? Wäre sehr dankbar bin absoluter Neuling! Profil ist ultimaker 2 extended + auf cura eingestellt und die Version auf dem Drucker ist 3.3 von 15. März 2018
  24. I am printing a roughly 20x20x10mm dome shape on my UM2 (about 1 mm thick, finalized in Cura 3.3.1). At the very last layer (I think) the printer stops and then crushes the model. I tried it twice. What is going on?
  25. Im using Cura with the FT-5 printer. I can move around and home perfectly fine both with the individual axis and with the home all. The problem arrises when I try to print a file generated in Cura. After homing the printer and loading up a file, the head noisely vibrates, misses a bunch of steps, then starts printing in the wrong direction. Ive been trying to get up and running for a weeks now with no success. Any help on getting my prints set up in the middle would be great!
