About Me

  1. 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
  2. Hi, I am using Cura 4.8. I have a delta printer, so the first hotend movement command usually brings the nozzle down from Z270 to Z0.2 or whatever my first layer will be. I have been experimenting with some settings to try to improve the print. One of the settings changed the initial move. It now adds "G1 F600 Z1.2." It used to be: ;LAYER_COUNT:226 ;LAYER:0 M107 G0 F5400 X16.135 Y-17.736 Z0.2 ;TYPE:SKIRT G1 F2400 E0 But now it is ;LAYER_COUNT:226 ;LAYER:0 M107 G1 F600 Z1.2 G0 F5400 X16.135 Y-17.736 Z0.2 ;TYPE:SKIRT G1 F2400 E0 Wha
  3. I'm not sure when exactly this problem first occured, but I think it might have come with Cura 4.9. My printer is printing perfectly, until it suddenly stops in the middle of a layer. After slicing the file multiple times and also changing the 3D-Model a little, it still always is the same layer it stops in. Neither does the display freeze, nor does the Printer cool down, it just stops in the middle of the inner wall. I already took a look at the G-Code, but can't find anything (not that I am a Pro in inspecting G-Codes...). I am using an SD-Card, and also had the problem with a prin
  4. Hello, I installed the new Cura 4.9 and the installation completed but the program will not open. I get the error message shown in the attached screen capture. I am using Windows 7 ( I know it is old) and Cura 4.9 did install and open properly on one of my other Win 7 machines, but not on the computer that I need it on. Also installed on that computer are Cura 15.4, 4.2, and 4.8 and all of those versions work properly. I have reasonable computer skills but I do not know anything about Python, so I am hoping that there is an easy fix for this. Thanks in advance for any suggest
  5. Hi Ultimaker Community, the Cura Slicer fills ab big hole in a cover plate that I want to print. It is a hole for a antenna of a orangePi Zero. I build a case for this OrangePi in blender. The strange part is that the hole is shown in the cura edit mode but is gone in the preview mode :-/ Can you pleas help me? Cura Version: 4.2.1 Printer: Creality CR-10 OS: Windows 10 LTSC 64bit orange-dach-2.3.stl blender.zip
  6. I have it centered in Cura, but it starts printing off the bed. Is my g-code messed up? Thank you.
  7. Hello community, I have a question - What are the settings that control/affect the Fan speed in Cura? I have started a topic about the "Bridge fan speed" to which I don't have an answer and now I see that the fan speed for other projects I'm doing is not what I specify. Apparently there are some settings that are not stright forward visible or some Material, Shell or Other settings that affect the Fan speed. Thanks Stan
  8. Hello Ulitmaker community, After taking apart the feeder for cleaning, putting it back together, and re-attaching it to the UM2E (a process I typically do once a month or so), I noticed that filament is being ground/stripped in the feeder, preventing any material from being extruded once the print starts - the printer will motion over the print area without printing anything. This seems to happen regardless of how tight the tension in the feeder is set. I've had it at max tension, min, and most stops in between, all with the same result. Manually moving filament using the 'move
  9. Hi everyone, Today I got my AA 0.4 extruder of my UMS5 completely clogged, tried cleaning it with clean filament (hot pulls and cold pulls) but I can't get anything out.. It even exploded a little bit of filament through the top of the extruder away in on of the pulls, when I was trying to push the filament down. I already disassembled the nozzle form the extruder, and now I wonder if is it possible to only purchase a nozzle instead of a complete extruder.. If yes, where? Is there other better options, like switching to an Olsson Ruby nozzle?
  10. Hello community, I've started a model which has some overhangs - 21 mm to be bridged. To do this I used the Bridge settings under Experimental tab in Cura 4.8.0. Where comes an issue? I watched how the bridge printing will be done on the printer and to my surprise I saw an opposite action to what I specified in Cura. Under "Bridge Fan Speed" I've set 100% but in reality the printer - Creality Ender 3 V2, is stopping the fan just before it starts the bridging and after finished with the bridging is going to the specified 80% for the rest of the layer, which is not ov
  11. Bonjour à tous, Sur mon UM3 je tente d'imprimer avec du FlexiFil de chez FormFutura. La pièce est un tube de 25mm x 100mm imprimé verticalement. Buse à 145°, bed à 95°, vitesse 30mm/s, pas de rétraction, ventilation 40% et bordure de 15mm. Le résultat est très propre sauf que l'objet ne colle pas sur le plateau, donc ça commence bien mais ça fini mal. Je pense qu'à un moment la ventilation suffit à faire bouger la pièce. J'ai testé avec la vitre propre et avec du Dimafix mais la pièce se décolle... Avez vous une astuce pour améliorer l'adhésion
  12. Hello, I work for a large global company and we have network security. This of course is blocking me from connecting ulitmaker cura to the marketplace to sync materials. Our IT department is extremely slow at whitelisting any websites. My hope is that there is some way to add a material profile without using the marketplace and linking the ultimaker cura. That, or getting the material profile information so that i can simply create a custom material profile and enter in the same settings. I couldn't seem to find any setting information though. The material i need to add is the Poly
  13. Hi everyone, I am on the verge of giving up with Cura for printing TPU. I have a Sovol SV01 printer and it prints eSUN PLA and eSUN PETG perfectly fine using Cura. When I try my eSUN TPU 95A however, I get large blobs at a distance next to the walls. I have tried tuning retraction distance and speed separately ranging from 3 to 6.6mm (limit) and 18 to 39 mm/s (limit) respectively. I have also tried ranging the temperature from 220 to 230 degrees, various coasting and all combing mode settings (also "Max Comb Distance With No Retract"). Printing speed is with 27mm/s
  14. This topic is all over the place clear back to 2012. I just can't get it to work for me. The usual solution being "Check Union Overlapping Volumes" This isn't working for me. Attached is the file. It is a corner piece for a plastic door. It has 2 screw holes and an internal void for a magnet. I already printed the internal cylinder and it is perfect fit for my magnet. The grey spot shows up in Cura but when i click slice the void doesn't exist, cura does regular infill. Any ideas on how to get this cavity to work? This was made in sketchup. I have that file i
  15. My Ender 3 Pro shifts on the y-axis only for certain prints in certain configurations, but when it shifts, it does so consistently, indicating that it is likely a software problem. Attached are pictures of three attempts to print an A and an L. I have laid them out as I printed them to show the effects of my rearrangement within the software. The last attempt I let run all the way until the stop at layer command I put in post-processing, but the other two I stopped as soon as they shifted. I am printing translucent red PETG on a 1 mm nozzle with the attached speed settings. I'd appreciate some
  16. I did a mistake with an abrasive filament. It is possible to change the nozzle ? It is now, or in the future, 0.4 nozzle as spare part for UM3 ?
  17. Hello everyone I just wanted to share my discovery. I have been having an issue where some .gcode files sliced on Cura were not showing up on the SD menu of my Creality 3D CR-X. I went and updated the firmware and I was still having the issue. Simple solution is to shorten the name of the file. Example: "CCRX_CRXFilamentGuideV3.gcode" will not show up "FilGuide.gcode" will show up Just wanted to save people a headache if they have the same issue 🙂
  18. 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.
  19. Got the following message today when powering-up the printer: "Difference between detected height of both print cores exceeds realistic values". See attached image. After reading many posts online with troubleshooting solutions such as 'bad ground causing capacitive sensor to fail' or 'removing at least one print head fixed the problem', I opened the fan door and looked at the capacitive sensor (white PCB with two wires labelled 'sensor' and 'shield'). On both sides are two bent pins coming-out of the plated PCB holes (pins are bent outwards). I guess the company will n
  20. I am getting the following Octoprint error message, yet the file I am attempting to upload is indeed a .gcode file I saved after Cura slicing. (This ended up as an Octoprint issue.) Upload failed Could not upload the file. Make sure that it is a readable, valid file with one of these extensions: .g, .gco, .gcode
  21. Hello everyone, With Cura, do you know if it is possible to change the nozzle route that is automatically generated ? I am printing gears and I would like them to have more mechanical resistance, specifically between the teeth and the main body. By default, for each layer, the teeth are printed first and then the body (the cylinder part of the gear). Here's a picture of the preview : We can see that the teeth are printed separately and it make the thing more breakable. What I would like is to print them as one and unique body. I mean that I would
  22. I am relatively new to 3DP but have had some success. I've seen many of the self-help videos and read through the forums. Recently I replaced a fan, and then started to encounter a problem with adhesion (yes, don't see the connection either). Naturally I assumed it was the printer, so I spent hours re-leveling, looking at glue sticks, etc. Then it dawned on me that perhaps it wasn't me or the printer, but the file I downloaded? During the print it always seemed to fail right at a small circular unconnected high feature. So I thought perhaps I could add a brim that might increase my odd
  23. 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 an
  24. Somehow the material (Cards PLA-X3) I printed with did not attach to the build plate. Instead it became stuck between the silicon protection and the print core. What is a safe way to remove this, without ruining the print core? Edit: solved using this technique
  25. i have a ADIMLab-gantry 3D printer and the size of the bed is 315 by 315 by 415 so I set up a custom printer but when i go to print it starts right where its homed to can anyone help me on how I can center it to start to print in the center. Thanks
