  1. Hi All, Total NOOB to making here so please be gentle. I’m making some interlocking pieces. Basically a rectangular box made from 6 panels with tabs around the edges. I printed one out to measure; the overall measurement of the piece is .4mm bigger and all the tabs around the outside edges are .4mm wider than specified. And the area between the tabs is about .3mm narrower than specified. STL attached.I printed it with a .4mm nozzle using the default .2 mm print setting. If I print it using the fine setting can I expect better results? I have smaller nozzles but I can't select the siz
  2. Hi, so I'm having a problem with Cura 7.1 all of a sudden. It's that it somehow prints objects smaller than what it says it's going to be. I tested my machine to see if something is wrong with the firmware but it moves a solid 100mm when I tell it to through the USB connection using the laptop as a host. This is the model: Can it be that Cura is somehow producing a scaling error when generating the gcode? What kind of information can I share to find out what's the exact issue here? Thanks for your time. My browser is tripping out after adding in a picture so
  3. Hello, I would like to automate the production of 3D printed part. Cura could be useful for few reasons: -when you open a file with cura, it automatically center and orient the part on the bed Here is the command I use: cura cube. stl But then I don't know and didn't find any resources to save this file back to a .stl, which will be positionned and ready to be sliced with a good position and orientation. Is is possible to do that: open a file, center it, orienting the .stl and save it bakc to an .stl file? I did have a
  4. So i have had two S5 printers (one was replaced as it was damaged in delivery but i managed to get one print off it) and it appears they both have exhibited the phenomenon of the prints not being square. The print from my first printer (i dont have a photo on me for evidence) can be seen by eye to be very slightly not square. Attached you should find a couple of images of an item i printed last night. this needed to be quite precisely square but as you can see, it is not (i added some right angles to the image for clarity). the second image also shows that the print has
  5. Hi, I have a Creality CR-10s Pro V2 and every time I start a print via USB using your software, it does its auto bed leveling but then starts to draw these weird lines on the left side of my bed and then goes completely to the very left front corner and hits the tabs holding my build plate on. I dont know why it does this seeing as if I use the Creality Slicer after bed leveling it goes straight into building the model at the center of the build plate, but on your software its drawing weird lines on the left and hitting the build plate tab at front left. I took a video of this and posted on yo
  6. I have used Cura in the past and never noticed any issues with dimensions but now I have printed a few small parts with the latest version and have noticed some issues. I am not an expert but it seems strange when I open an stl file that is 2mm thick and slice it and print it, it measures 0.045 inch instead of 0.0787 and if scale it in Cura, it still comes out incorrect. I tried another part at 5mm thick and it too is way undersize in the thickness. Any ideas? Using a CR10S with a 0.4mm nozzle and PLA. Thanks, schemer
  7. 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
  8. I have 3 printers; a Hictop, an FLSun, and a Tronxy. If I load an STL file into Cura and switch between the profiles of these three printers, it reports different print times for each one. The Tronxy print time is usually about double that of the other two. This is with all having the same print speed, travel speed, layer thickness, etc. There is apparently some other difference between the printer profiles that I can't find. Where should I look?
  9. I'm working on a part and have run into an issue with it's strength. If i print it as a solid item, it does the job perfectly but it's obviously using a lot of material. If I print it with infill (50%), it's great except for one crucial point which breaks on every test. So the question I have (which I think I already know the answer to) - is there any way to print a part with 50% infill overall, but have a section(s) where it's solid ? If this is not possible currently, perhaps this is a feature that can be implemented ?, possibly something similar to the current sup
  10. Hallo liebe Gemeinde ich habe eine generelle Frage, ich bin mi den Ecken meiner Bauteile unzufrieden und hätte ein paar Fragen. (gedruckt mit Cura StandardFast 0,2, 0,4mm Düse) Ich habe dazu ein Bild angehängt und die betroffenen Stellen markiert, wie man erkennen kann sind an den Außenecken nicht im 90° Winkel gedruckt. Vermutlich läuft an den wird an den Stellen zuviel Material raus und es bilden sich diese Wölbungen? Allerdings passiert das ja in den Innenecken nicht ? Muß man hier in den Ecken schneller drucken, oder mit weniger Material ...
  11. Hallo, bin ein absoluter 3d Druck Neuling, besitze einen Anycubic i3 mega und wollte cura verwenden da es überall sehr gelobt wurde. Leider komme ich mit der Bedienung nicht zurecht. Im Moment versuche ich einen heat-tower zu drucken und ihn an meinen Drucker anzupassen. Habe auch ein tolles Video gefunden, leider sind die entscheidenden Klicks außerhalb des sichtbaren Inhaltes und die Version 4.7.0 ist wohl noch zu neu. Nach dem slicen kann sich der Macher des Videos die Schichten anzeigen lassen, leider fehlt in meiner Version diese Anzeige. Vermutlich mache ich
  12. I was trying to print vase Mode just to test my printer, so I am using spiralized contour with smooth spiralized contour on. The normal procedure when printing is that it should print the base first and then create a spiralized contour all the way up without stopping. But for some reason every 1/3 of the spiral it stopped for a bit and continue, because of that it create blob. I have turned on retract every layer change settings but it didn't retract when it stops. Is there any settings that I missed? Update: found the problem, it was actually the STL file causing the problem, I tried
  13. 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
  14. I've tried multiple things to try and ix this but nothing seems to work. How do I make this smooth and not have this ugly lines that race down the top of the print.
  15. Hi, if this is not the correct place to suggest a change in Ultimaker Cura, please just point me in the right direction. I was playing with the Pause at Height feature in Cura and I noticed that the gcode inserted switched the print to extrusion absolute mode. My printer uses relative mode, so it took me a while to figure out why it wasn't working. I can manually modify the gcode myself, changing all M82 command to M83, but it would be nice to have the option of switching between relative and absolute in the plugin itself.
  16. I built my printer and have been adjusting it so far. I do have a little knowledge of printers due to making prototype parts for a printer company (DeltaMaker) on cnc lathes and mills. Now for the problem. I was using Prusa slicer and it was printing ok just didn't quite like the slicer so I am trying Cura. The first print was of a piece that was already printed with Prusa. This time with Cura it was printing and the y axis was leaning to the rear in steps. Including pics. Now before you say its losing steps or slipping, I canceled the print and immediately moved the x and y ax
  17. So I have this Gcode file that won't read on my Ender 5 plus. I have downloaded it and sliced it but it won't read on my printer. I have tried redoing the whole process but it still wont work. Here's a video of me slicing it and putting it into my printer. But the file doesn't pop up when it's in my printer. 20200416_155801.zip
  18. Hey! I am fairly new to all of this. However, I created a 3D-Model and am seeing some peaks on top of sharp edges on the upper layers of my model. The peaks do not exist on the actual model. I am sure that there is something I am getting wrong. To add some additional background, I am using Cura 4.6.2, which should be the latest version. I also added a slight chamfer (0.2mm) to the vertical edges, from which the peaks seem to extend. It did not fix the issue though. I attached a screenshot of both, the model and the sliced layers. I also tossed th
  19. I have a Hamlet HP3DX100, this is my first 3D printer. I set cura for printing well but on each layer the extruder move to a corner and after start to print the next layer. This have the side effect to create some bad artifact from the end point to the corner for each layer. Exist some settings to solve this issue?
  20. i want to print a swich arcade box. there are 4 files but the sides them wont slice, it says: Nothing to slice because none of the models fit the build volume or are assigned to a disabled extruder please scale or rotate to fit, or enable an extruder. can someone help me with this? nintendo-switch-arcade-box.zip
  21. Bonjour, Débutant sous Cura et dans l'impression 3D, j'ai configuré Cura afin qu'il exécute au démarrage de l'impression un G-code de démarrage, quand j'édite le fichier généré, j'ai des lignes qui sont ajoutées par Cura et qui me gênent au niveau du nivelage du plateau (mise en chauffe de la tête pendant le nivelage, mon bl-touch etant fixé derrière mon corps de chauffe sur la tanantula pro et des erreurs de niveau peuvent apparaitre) ci-joint le contenu du G-code de démarrage depuis l'onglet paramètre de la machine G28 ; home all axes M140 S60; start heatin
  22. Hello! Using Cura on my Windows notebook, I saved a .3mf file with all information such as printer profile and print settings. I tried to open it in my Macbook and it didn't import project info, just the 3D model. To test if the problem was my Mac or the file itself, I reinstalled Cura on Windows, without any previous settings and opened this .3mf file. All project settings were loaded properly along with the 3d file. Then, using Cura on my Mac I saved another .3mf project and opened it on my Windows and it also worked fine. I use Cura version 4.6.`1 in both
  23. hi everyone, the home point in cura is by default in the left front corner when in my printer it is in the rear left corner...the consequence is that the prints are mirrored in the Y direction... i try to change the "home-point" position but i couldn't do it...is there a way to do it? Thanks
  24. Hello, I'm working on a plugin based on the CustomSupport plugin. But in this case I'm not creating a cube but a cylinder. I haven't any problem to get the right length ( from the picked point to the base) but I wanted to define the radius as a parameter in order to be able to customize this value. Is it possible to add a customized value ? or to get an existing value for this parameter Ie : support_conical_min_width ? Cylinder.zip
  25. Dear All on the forum, Would anybody be at help for the following? I would like to print a mesh with a cutted hole inside (the model is good, watertight and so on) There is a setting in Mesh Fixes, stating "union overlapping volumes". I would like to have this ON (for another reason). If I turn the model, I can print it fine; wíth the cutted hole (see image 1) If I print the model in the preferred position, I have a problem printing the hole with this setting ON (see image 2). The hole gets visible again with the setting "union overlapping volumes" OFF (see image 3) The r
