  1. This fix is for connecting an Ender-3 Neo to a Mac over USB using Cura 5.2.1. This might work for other Ender printers too. I did not have to install any custom drivers since MacOS comes with them preinstalled. Plug in the printer via USB and open Terminal.app, type in ls /dev (that will list the contents of the /dev folder, which is where all connected devices are listed). Look in the output list for tty.usbserial-10 or cu.usbserial-10. If they are there, then the printer is connected to the OS. Right click on the Ultimaker-Cura.app > Show Package Contents. Navigate to Contents > Resources > share > cura > plugins > USBPrinting and open USBPrinterOutputDeviceManager.py in your favorite text editor (I use Visual Studio Code since it is free). Edit line 86 and change it from port_list = self.getSerialPortList(only_list_usb=True) to port_list = self.getSerialPortList(only_list_usb=False) Save the file and close it. Now open Cura and go to the Monitor tab. You should see a bunch of new menu items that indicate that your printer is now connected. So, what did you change? You edited the only_list_usb parameter from True to False, allowing the serial port scanner to check for usb serial ports that are not listed with the name starting with USB (all caps). Ours start with tty and cu. Hope this helps someone! Happy printing.
  2. I have been using Ultimaker 2+ Extended for some time with no issues. This is my first week using the Ultimaker 3, and I am not able to get Cura to merge the models correctly. The models that I am using have identical coordinate systems (I have them mated together in a solidworks assembly by the origin planes [top-top, front-front, right-right]), but when Cura merges them, there is an offset along each axis. Is Cura treating the center-of-gravity as the origin or something ridiculous like that? What happened to the feature that allowed me to place models overlapping each other and manually move them around?
  3. Hi all, I'm using 5.2.1 and my printer is an Anycubic i3 Mega S. Since yesterday my printer shows a new behaviour after printing each layer. The print head moves back and forth a little bit, it does this 4-5 times and then it starts printing the next layer. I probably set this somewhere by mistake, but I have no idea where. Does anyone know which Cura parameter this is? Many thanks in advance and best regards Michael
  4. I'm wondering if someone could tell me a way to set my own default entries in the per-model menu bar? By default there are seven pre-selected parameters which appear each time I want to modify my overlap, which are irrelevant to my needs. Typically I just want infill density=100% to reinforce certain areas etc. I know I can dismiss them by ticking the "-" button, but I can't figure out how to make that choice stick for subsequent uses of the menu item. I couldn't find anything in settings or searching online. I suspect I might need to edit a settings file somewhere. Anyone with any suggestions? Thanks. ==>
  5. Hallo zusammen Ich habe folgendes Problem beim zweifarbigen Druck und suche nach einer Lösung. Der Drûcker fähtr ausserhalb der Farbe die Kontur nach, die jedoch nicht auf jedem Layer. Erste Schicht war in diesem Fall falsch, wobei dann bei der letzten Schicht alles i.O. war. Das STL wurde mit Catia V5 generiert. Ist jemandem dieses Problem bekannt? Danke schonmal für eure Hilfe Gruess muellu
  6. Hi all. I may have missed it but I haven't yet found the answer. If you have cura set for walls to be two rows thick and the actual wall is 6mm thick with a hole vertical in the wall. This puts two rows around the hole. Is there a way to put more rows around the holes to make them stiffer? I haven't found a way yet. Thanks
  7. today i tryied to install cura slicer 5.2.1 on my windows 10 pc and when i hit finish in the installation window insted of letting me open the slicer i get these following errors:
  8. Hello, I have a question. My daughter received an ENTINA TINA2 from Santa Claus for Christmas, but we are having trouble installing the software. The software that came with it could not be installed in our environment, so we did some research and found out that the Cura software can be installed depending on the version. We have found out that the software does not work as it is and that we need a config file, and we have put the json file in the resource folder, but it is not loading properly. Below is a description of our PC environment. I don't want to upgrade for some reason. Mac book pro early 2015 mac os 10.11.6 El capitan cura ver. 4.8.0 mac book air M1 mac os 12.6.1 Montrey cura ver. 5.2.1 I was able to load the config file, but when I select it, I get the following message. https://www.dropbox.com/s/qq8ncgtwuamayj2/スクリーンショット 2023 -01-10 1.40.50.png?dl=0 The config file was brought from the cura4.10 system folder that came with the 3D printer. The work is done with reference to the following page. https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Adding-new-machine-profiles-to-Cura I don't know what is wrong anymore,.... I guess the next thing to try is to write the json myself. If you have any solutions or suggestions, I would appreciate it.
  9. Hallo alle beisammen, ich besitze einen Geeetech A20T mit dem Slicer Cura. Leider druckt der Drucker ab einer bestimmten Höhe auf zwei Seiten unsauber (einmal hinten und dann einmal vorne an der Naht). Ich habe auch schon viel an der Temperatur und der Flussrate herumgespielt, aber leider hilft das alles nichts. Das Coasting hatte ich auch schon angestellt (0,064 mm³ bei einer 0,4mm Düse). Ich drucke zurzeit PLA mit einer Temperatur von 210 Grad. Auf den Bildern 4 und 5 kann man während des Druckes sehen, dass sich das Filament ein wenig verzieht. Ich denke, dass der unsaubere Druck damit etwas zu tun hat. Wie kann ich das Problem denn lösen oder denkt ihr es liegt an etwas anderem? Vielen Dank schonmal im voraus. Liebe Grüße
  10. I'm using cura 5.2.1 with my ender 5 pro and have had problems with the walls not adhering to each other using pla at a temperature of 210*C, layer height .12-.2, bed temp 50, fan speed 100%, wall flow speed: I have tried between 100 and 120% the last picture was 1wall and 100% infill and the walls don't mesh with the infill
  11. I had some problems over the weekend. apparently the front, drop down door on the UM3 came open and the printer continued to try to print. I wound up with a very large mass of filament all over the #1 Nozzle and up into the head (I should have taken some pictures, it was impressive). In order to remover the filament, I was forced to remove and disassemble the head and use a heat gun to melt the material sufficiently for removal in small bites. I now have a small problem. Everything is cleaned up, and the head is reassembled, except for the nozzle lifting mechanism. Is there a diagram somewhere that will show me exactly how this goes back together. There are two plastic pieces, a spring and a small metal piece. I just need to know the placement of the spring and the small metal piece. I think I have it figured out, but would like to make sure before closing it up. Robert

  13. Hi All, I have UltimakerS5. did purchase a new ultimaker tough PLA Light grey spool. when opened the CURA i could not choose the light grey colour for printing as there is no such option. could someone please help me on this refer below pic of the cura
  14. Buongiorno. Sto cercando di eliminare o disattivare alcuni plugins dalla cura versione 4.13.1 qualcuno puo aiutarmi? Grazie
  15. I am trying to add a new printer in cura. when I go to add a printer it only shows me the printers I already have. see the screen shot below. I deleted and reinstalled cura. still the same. I was trying to go back to 5 and try that but I cant find it. I am on a mac as well and running 5.2.1 of cura.
  16. What am I doing wrong that my Pause At Height will not stop my printer during printing. I tried adding a couple of pauses in a print earlier this week and didn't realize that the post-processing carries over to all prints sliced after this, but none of my prints have executed a pause since I added these. Initially the first pause was set to 4mm and every print since then has been much taller than that limit so it should have paused for each print. It seems pretty straightforward from the videos I've seen setting this up in Cura, so I'm quite perplexed. I'm using and Ender 3 Pro printer and I have Cura version 4.4.1.
  17. I have a little cube 10x10x10 mm as test. I slice it with cura 5.1.0. In preview Cura says that there ale 33 layers but this is non right. 32*0.2 + 0.3 = 6.7 mm instead of 10. If i print the cube with mi Anycubic i3 mega it he will be 10mm tall. no problem. The problem arises if i want to pause at height to insert something. If i will made a pause at height aproximateli at the midle of he cube height i have to say to pause at sixteenth layer. but that means 15*0.2+0.3 is 3.3 mm insted of 5 mm. Can someone please tell me where is the error? I attach the files .3mf and the gcode. Thanks in advance. prova tre.3mf AI3M_prova tre.3mf AI3M_prova tre.gcode
  18. Hello, I was wondering if anyone help me try and figure out a problem. I am having random resets of my 2+ ext at weird times. Sometime during the start up phases of a print and sometimes X amt of hrs into it causing it to fail. Have tried different files to see if it was something to do with the files. No luck, along with heating the bed and nozzle up separately to see if one of them causes the same issue. Again no luck. It hard to replicate when it does reset due to it happening at different times but the two mention times are the most common. I have also explored the option maybe it was the power outlet I had it attached to, but have relocated it to a different plug and tested the original plug for any faults. It had been working fine till after I took the feeder motor off to do some daily maintenance on it due to filament dust was mixing with the grease, thus why I took it apart and cleared the caked up gunk and relubed the gears. Short of taking it apart to get to the board underneath other test or avenues I need to explore.
  19. Posting this solution in case someone else runs into the same issue. In Cura, choose Preferences > Configure Cura. Near the top of the options, check "Slice Automatically." It's as simple as that. As soon as I changed that setting, Cura sliced, and I had a project that was ready to evaluate.
  20. In every version of Cura until today there is needed a modification of the AutodetectBaudJob.py in the share\cura\plugins\usbprinting folder, to connect to the Ender 5 or the BigTreeTech Mainboards via USB. To get them to work you need to outcomment these lines: programmer = Stk500v2() serial = None # try: # programmer.connect(self._serial_port) # serial = programmer.leaveISP() # except ispBase.IspError: # programmer.close() Please fix and use in following versions.
  21. I literally just started printing today with the purchase of a brand new Ender 3 Pro, did a test print and figured out the fastest I could print with good quality, then went to Thingiverse and found the files for an ODST helmet I want to print. Got the file in Cura right now and scaled so it fits the plate, but it isn't slicing. Says "please review settings and check if your models fit within build volume, are assigned to an enabled extruder, and are not set as modifier meshes" Send help I'm going crazy it's been 45 minutes..
  22. Good evening everyone. I recently aquired a used UM3. When I connected it to my WiFi, is asked me if I wanted to upgrade firmware... I said YES without questioning the offer. Then the problems started: - It downloaded an update and installed ist. When it went into the reboot, it never came past "Ultimaker" in the display. Jog-wheel didn't light up. Totally stuck. Repeated power cycles did not help. - So, I opted for the Recovery process as described in the Ultimaker website. I downloaded recovery Image um-restore-5.3.0.20211003.img and did as instructed. The install process does not start - green LED constant on, no yellow lights - only "Ultimaker" in the display, nothing else happens. - I hunted the internet for older recovery images - found these: - recovery-5.2.16.20200331.img --- not working - UM3_recovery-4.3.3.20180529.img --- not working Finally found one image that did work: - UM3_recovery-3.7.7.20170627.img Install process runs fine - printer back up and running. However this firmware is really old and Cura doesn't recognize the printer on the network and it doesn't like the original Ultimaker filaments and the gcode processed via Cura will not run on the UM3. I then tried updating via USB stick - as instructed on the UM website... for old firmware (4.3.3 and earlier)... selected 4.3.97 and the same thing happened: stuck on reboot!! Can someone please point me in the correct direction? Thanks a lot - kind regards, Alex.
  23. Running on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. In both 5.1.0 and 5.2.1, many Profile options are disabled: I remember using all 3 options previously in 5.0. I don't understand. Is there something in Preferences that must be change to enable these options?
  24. Hello all. I have just upgraded to 5.1.1 and the build plate would not move with mouse inputs, So uninstalled 5.1 and went back to 5.0, now its build plate will not move from mouse inputs either!!!! Mouse works fine with all other apps. I have tried going through the Setting but nothing works!!!!
  25. Hey all! When I enable "Retract at Layer Change" in Cura 5.1.1 it inserts two retract/prime cycles instead of one. See GCode snippet. I added comments where I see the retracts are happening (retract distance is 10mm in this example). G1 F900 X118.728 Y118.859 E169.1823 ;End of last layer G0 F9000 X118.2 Y118.2 G1 F1800 E159.1823 ;Retract ;MESH:NONMESH G0 F300 X118.2 Y118.2 Z1.32 G0 F9000 X100.67 Y100.67 G1 F1800 E169.1823 ;Prime for next layer G0 F9000 X100.3 Y100.3 ;TIME_ELAPSED:212.997283 ;LAYER:4 G1 F1800 E159.1823 ;Retract again ;TYPE:WALL-OUTER ;MESH:xyzCalibration_cube.stl G1 F1800 E169.1823 ;Prime for next layer again I thought it may be an overlap with "Retract Before Outer Wall" but I have that turned off and I still get two retract cycles. For kicks, I tried the same settings on Cura 4.8.0 and there is just one retract cycle. Am I missing something and this is intended behavior in Cura 5.1.1? Possibly a bug? Thanks for your help!
