About Me



On The Web

  1. Well, over the past few weeks cura 4.12 has started to underextrude - well made gcode files that did so. I finally took a single layer to a caliper and measured. My lines are set at 0.4mm, same as the nozzle, and yet only 2.5 lines are within 1.6mm with much empty space. There should be 4 lines. I don't see an option for space between lines, there's line width and thats it. If it means anything I have a bunch of custom line directions [45,135,15,105,75,165]. I don't think it's the printer because i tried an old gcode I sliced last year, it printed fine with lines approximated. So with the lines overspaced, none of my prints are finishing. I can compensate with flow to like 150%, but then I get artifacts from overextrusion! Please help.
  2. I'm trying to print a temp tower but it acts like the walls are too thin to print without "Print thin walls" setting enabled. "Horizontal Expansion" is at 0 and it doesn't make any difference to lower the line width either. Please let me know what setting could cause this, Thanks. Found the issue, it was outer wall inset.
  3. Bonjour tout le monde, Je rencontre un problème d'impression en PC Ultimaker assez sérieux. J'ai imprimé la pièce ci-dessous avec une buse de 0.8, configuration cura pour PC par défaut, soit 40 mm/s, le brim imposé à 8 mm la config est bloquée, je ne peux pas changer ce paramètre). Le temps d'impression est estimé à environ 13h, j'utilise du DimaFix + plateau à 100°, une plaque de plexy' à l'avant ajouté et buse à 251°C. Ultimaker 2+. Comme vous le voyez, la partie du bas est relativement bien faite, mais quand elle fait 15 % du bac, cela se décolle au centre, ce qui flingue l'impression. Je ne veux plus prendre le risque de mettre le plateau à 110°C car sur l'une de mes imprimantes, pour la même pièce, ça a endommagé la sonde, qui met en sécurité la machine si je monte à 70-80° à présent... Bien que j'avais utilisé une buse de 0.4 pour 24h d'impression avant ce problème... Je vois aussi que j'ai parfois des layers qui se relèvent un peu à certains endroits et je constate que j'ai un petit peu de matière qui enrobe la buse, ce qui provoque des ratures à certains endroits... Qu'est-ce que vous me conseillez de faire ? Car je commence à douter de la faisabilité de cette pièce...

  6. I have an idea for a plugin but currently do not feel confident enough to create this plugin on my own. I have not started work on any part of this yet but have found existing plugin wiki that exists and have taken a glance at the different example codes that it has. The idea is as follows: In either the printer settings window and/or somewhere in the print settings adding a area where you can setup and save post-processing scripts. The idea being that they will be saved and will be automatically applied when slicing your g-code but do not have to be entered each time you switch printers. Any help would be appreciated because I really don't know how to approach making this plugin.
  7. Hello, I'm experimenting with the "per model settings" Infill Mesh and Support Mesh. For better use, I disabled "Automatically drop models to the build plate" option from the preferences. An option to manually do it would be usefull. The feature is already in Cura, we just need the option (maybe via right click on the model, or in the Move menu) to manually do it. Thank you in advance, A
  8. Hi, I need some help to get rid of some gaps at the start points of certain layers. The issue may be linked to the folowing topic, but after some experimenting with setting (e.g. wall order, z-seam alignment to sharpest corner + smart hiding, I managed to get a good print of the Benchy: Unfortunately, the same settings don;t work for the xyz cube (profile attached). I'm using a modded Ender 5 Pro: it now has a 32 bit Creality board and Marlin 2.0.x customised for both BL Touch and (most important perhaps) an E3D Hemera Direct Drive. The cube was printed with ColorFabb CopperFill filament and a 0.6mm steel nozzle. The cubes usually come out well in regular PLA (like polyTerra or Fiberlogy), PETG (Fiberlogy) and even NinjaFlex.

  9. Anytime I have tried to slice my imported .ipt files into Gcode the software says it will take 10 minutes to do the full part, which should take hours. I have put it into a Gcode reader which says the same thing. I am using the recommended settings and my printer can print other users Gcode files just not my own because of this. I'm using an Ender 3 Pro and Ultimaker Cura 4.12.1 Thanks in advance for any advice CE3PRO_Test Piece1.gcode
  10. Hallo, ich habe nun seit Tagen das Problem das das Filament (Ultimaker Silber Metallic welches zum Ultimaker dazu war) nicht mehr auf dem Druckbett hängen bleibt. Ich habe schon einiges probiert wie zb. den Feeder sauber gemacht, diese Atomic Cleaning Methode oder wie diese heißt, neues Tape drauf gemacht, das Druckbett mehrmals neu eingestellt... aber alles hat nicht geholfen. Ich habe vorher (einige Tage her) schon einiges mit dem Filament gedruckt was auch, bis auf die erste Schicht, immer ziemlich gut gelungen ist aber nun Spinnt der Drucker irgendwie komplett rum. Ich habe mal ein Video gemacht damit ihr seht wie das aussieht bzw. das er da für ein misst Produziert ^^ Da sieht man das er am Anfang des Skirt schon eine kleine Lücke hat was mich aber so nicht stört. Anfangen tut es dann bei dem ersten Schraubenloch. Der größere Kreis ist auch nicht komplett. Die Außenwände sehen dann wieder gut aus. Der Höhepunkt ist dann aber dieses andere Loch oben Rechts was erst mal überhaupt nicht haften will. Wie gesagt ich habe schon das Druckbett mehrmals mit versch. Abständen neu eingestellt und getestet aber jedes mal kommen diese Probleme wieder. Ich habe auch mal den gCode mit angehangen von diesem Objekt. Cura Version ist die 3.6.0 Ich hoffe ihr könnt mir helfen denn ich bin echt mittlerweile am verzweifeln. Air20_Front.gcode
  11. Hey there I've been trying to restart this print in progress all day but no matter what I do I cannot get rid of the first layer. (i know from previous tests that it will try to print the first layer no matter what's in the way) I hand edited the g-code deleting the first 70 layers. I have tried deleting each line by line before the layer count to see if that had any affect and it did not. also turning off first later horizontal expansion did nothing to help either. unfortunately I don't have an ultimaker machine, I'm using my ender 3 pro. But I love Curas interface much more than others However I don't think that should effect the g-code. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!
  12. Cura 4.12.1 - I just tried adding the 5axes Import Export CSV Profiles plugin. I am not seeing it. Looked under Extension, in the Profile Manager, the File menu, tried exporting a profile, tried saving the project. Not seeing any .csv options. Also tried reinstalling Cura, multiple Cura restarts, toggling the state of the plugin in the MartketPlace. I'm sure I am missing something that should be obvious to me ... https://marketplace.ultimaker.com/app/cura/plugins/5axes/ImportExportProfiles?action=addToCura
  13. Issue is as the title describes. Midway through the print, the support nozzle (printing breakaway support) slows down its flow to a trickle and leaves wisps of filament instead of solid lines. I have multiple AA 0.4 nozzles and have changed them thinking it may be a clog but it does the same thing at around the same layer. I also thought it might be a G-Code issue but i re-sliced the part and its giving me the same issue. Attached is a picture of the prime tower. You'll see that for the first several dozen layers the breakaway is printing perfectly fine. I have tried 4 times and the issue always starts at the same layer.
  14. New trying to get a 2nd extruder working... I may have something wrong. My setup is a simple Y adapter, two extruder motors, one nozzle and hotend. Cheap as am i. But whenever I have models utilizing the 2nd extruder, save gcode results in an "Error 0". WTF is an error 0? That's supposed to be a non-error, but it's fatal-no gcode. I set both models to extruder 1 and it saves fine. Both to extruder 2 and it error 0 again. I tried another printer profile and also printing to octoprint with same error 0 again. I would attach a HTML of settings but this forum doesn't support HTML for some reason. So I saved it as a ascii encoded txt/"log" file. If I pasted it in this would be a mile long. creality_ender3pro.log
  15. 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. ==>
  16. 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
  17. I'm trying to print a die model that I made in OpenSCAD, but slicing it in Cura creates ugly artifacts on the sides of the cube. I'm using the default profile for the ender 3. Is there something wrong with my model or is this a bug in Cura? How do I fix it? I've attached all relevant files, and the SCAD code is here. CE3_die.gcode CE3_die.3mf die.stl
  18. I have an x86_64 system where I have installed octoprint. A printer with a smoothieboard is on a USB connection at /dev/ttyACM0. Octoprint works perfectly by itself. I have also downloaded the cura appimage (1.12.1) and with octoprint stopped and octoprint plugin removed, it also works perfectly by itself. If I install the octoprint plugin in cura, I can connect to octoprint, but apparently cura and octoprint are still fighting over control of /dev/ttyACM0. I can try to move the print head via manual control and nothing will happen for several seconds, then it (sometimes) suddenly moves. Octoprint gives errors about communication problems with the usb device. Is there some hidden setting I can use in cura to make it never try to talk to /dev/ttyACM0? It shouldn't need to if it is talking to octoprint.
  19. I'm having an issue with the bed level and nozzle offset checks when starting a print. Printer had been working fine up until yesterday. Essentially the printer attempts to do a level check at the start of the print, but the bed is now starting that check about 3/4" from the nozzle. It will either give me an error that the bed leveling failed, or that the nozzle offset is outside the expected range. Where the nozzle used to touch the bed during the check, it now stops with about a 1/4" or more gap between the nozzle and bed. I've tried manually leveling the bed before printing, and also updated to the latest firmware, but without success. Considering doing a full factory reset on the printer, but would also welcome any other areas to check.
  20. Simulation view is crashing Cura in 4.11 and 4.12. It does not crash 4.10, but the object remains shadowed transparent like it had not been sliced. I copied the simulation view plugin from 4.9 over the 4.12 plugin and that lets me at least see a preview. XRAY mode still works when I disable the plugin from the marketplace. Crashing occurs whether a STL is on the build plate or not, and whether it is sliced or not. I simply can't open the mode. Because of the mention of the extruder settings in the bug report, I suspected it was an issue with my custom printer so I did a clean re-install of 4.12 and selected a default Ultimaker printer. This did not fix the problem. I am now thinking something in 4.10+ is just not playing nice with my graphics card. This machine is using an AMD Radeon HD 6700 (which runs solidworks great). I searched the github and the forums and did not see anyone else having this exact issue. Any insight would be most welcome!
  21. Hallo zusammen ich bin noch etwas neu im Python/Cura Post-Processing Script entwerfen. Nun ist es immer sehr mühsam, nach dem schreiben des scripts, dieses zu überprüfen. Bis jetzt habe ich immer cura neu gestartet, das script ausgeführt und getestet bzw. bei Fehlern die .log Datei von Cura angesehen. Geht das auch einfacher? super wäre es, wenn man ohne jedesmal Cura starten zu müssen, dass script testen kann. ist das möglich? oder zumindest einen "super-schnell" start zu erwirken. Das lange warten, bis cura geladen ist, dauert am längsten. ich bin für jede hilfe dankbar.
  22. 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?

  23. Using this attached profile in Cura 4.11.0 with Ender 3 Pro with eSun PLA+ 1.75 mm filament. It doesn't matter what I try to print, the result is the same. The handle of my cookie cutter prints fine. The exterior wall prints fine. The opposite side from the picture is fine. The other side of the z seam is fine. I have changed the nozzle and bowden tube. I have tried multiple profiles, changed retraction settings, temperature, coasting settings, and speed and NOTHING changes the outcome. No matter what I change or what profile I use, this issue continues to occur only on the interior wall of the cookie cutter and only on the 1.2 mm blade and only to the right of the z seam by about 20 mm. If I randomize the z seam, then it this issue exists anywhere it placed the z seam in each layer. Any thing I print comes out this way. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

  24. Hi, After upgrade Cura to 4.11.0 I have some issues with slicer. If I slice a part with a hole in the middle (vertical), after slice the hole is missing. Attached there can be se same part in 3 way sliced. Cura 4.11.0 sliced horizontal and vertical Cura 4.9.1 sliced vertical How can I slice the part vertical in Cura 4.11.0? THanks IN Advance....
  25. 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 I hope it's readable when I post this topic.
