About Me

  1. I'm working on a plugin that wraps FormerLurker's command line version of the ArcWelder plugin originally developed for OctoPrint. The plugin attempts to reduce stutter by simplifying gcode. It analyses subsequent G0 or G1 movements that make up arcs and replaces these sequences with G2 or G3 lines. Gcode containing these arcs may or may not print well on your printer, depending on the type of controller and the configuration of the firmware. For more information about ArcWelder, read the description of the original plugin, and the discussion of realworld results. Gcode before
  2. 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
  3. I'm working on a new plugin that adds a simple measuring aid to Cura: In its current incarnation, the tool lets you pick (and drag) two points and shows the distance between these points. A test-version can be downloaded here: MeasureTool Download the file and drop it onto the buildplate in Cura as if you were opening a 3d model. Then restart Cura as instructed. The plugin is now available in the Marketplace.
  4. I have printed this pentagon frame on my Ender-3 Pro. There is distortion that does not seem to be simple X or Y miscalibration. In the picture, you can see that the outer parts of the frame have varying widths, same goes for the inner diagonals. The vertical direction is the X axis. Problems I have already found solutions for: The "wobbles" in the rightmost part of the frame, I have learned, are due to flat spots on the Y wheels. The 2 holes in the drawing not appearing in the print are due to being surrounded by an unbroken surface in the model. I forgot
  5. 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
  6. He's trying to tell me in a git Issue I filed: "That's normal . Csv should be export with semicolon as separate. Comma is used in some countries as decimal separator. So use it at parameter separator is not a good idea." Uh... here's what I wrote back: No, in a REAL CSV it is NOT NORMAL to use a semicolon as a separator I've been using CSV files for databases since 1988. You stating: "That's normal . Csv should be export with semicolon as separate. Comma is used in some countries as decimal separator. So use it at parameter separator is not
  7. My Ender 3 is very heavily customised; and so I need to change two things at least every time I print: Retraction has to be 0.5mm (it defaults to 5mm) - due to Hemera hotend Bed temp for PLA has to be 30 (it defaults to 50) - due to LokBuild bed I'm quite confused how the profiles work - there seems to be some hidden relationship between custom profiles, nozzle size and the default profiles, because when I change nozzle size then sometimes the custom profiles are filtered away. I've tried to read https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/wiki/Profiles-&-Se
  8. The issue is the material is not extruding properly on the build plate. I tried all the possible way i know to solve the issue but I couldn't solve it . smaller prints are printing good but bigger prints are giving issues. Please look at the images and help me to solve the issue.
  9. Hello! As stated in the title, my company's UMS5 extruder 2 is printing the 1st layer much too close to the build plate even after active bed leveling. Extruder 1 prints fine, but once it switches to extruder 2, the build plate comes so close that little to no material is allowed to extrude, which in turn strips the filament so that the flow sensor has to stop the print on the 2nd layer. I am currently using a 3rd party build plate: Uncoated Spring steel (Printed Solid) on top of a magnet base (Printed Solid) adhered on top of the original Ultimaker Glass build plate.
  10. Hi everyone! I got a new printer today, a Creality Ender 3 Max. Unfortunately there is no profile on CURA of this printer. I tried to change the profile of the Ender 3 but it gives me problems. Someone else have the Ender 3 Max?
  11. Hi, I have recently run into an issue with my printer when I try to use cura gcode. One printer runs marlin 2.0 and refuses to take any gcode which is cura based. The printer takes longer to start printing and when it begins printing, the print head will just move very slowly and extrude filament in the exact same manner every time. This also happens to another printer when I run cura gcode right after gcode generated by a different slicer. But the other printer just moves the print head to the corner and extrudes forever until you turn it off (resetting the printer and running
  12. Hello guys, I have problem, I am have block which is capable of reaching 450 deg C. But when i want to slice a model in CURA then i get information that its unable to slice it. I ve done my own custom printer and material added but it still is saying that is incorrect. Is it some kind of safty feature? How can i get rid of it? Thanks
  13. I am using Cura 4.8 with an Ender3 v2. This printer has a max print area of 220x220. I created an object that prints at 215x215, so well within the bounds of the printer. Yet, Cura refuses to slice it. I have: Disabled bed adhesion options (skirt etc) Double checked the printer settings in Cura (220x 220y 250z) Removed the printers Start G-Code lines that print the first two lines along the y-axis on all prints Does anyone know why? When I import this same object into PrusaSlicer it works. This seems like a bug.
  14. Hello, I recently purchased a Matterhackers Pulse XE. It's an upgrade from my previous Monoprice. It was nice that there was a Monoprice definition included in Cura, but there isn't for the Pulse XE. So I wrote one. It's probably still overly complicated and I'm still working out the kinks. I still have to do some more testing. But I'll happily share once its tested. You can get the Pulse XE with an E3D lite extruder or an E3D V6 extruder. I wrote (started to write) definitions for both. The problem is that the definitions are essentially the same, I
  15. Hi Everyone, I've been trying to print this portafilter dosing cup model (for an espresso machine) https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4648455 And for the life of me, I've been having problems trying to support the small lip sticking out around the edges without causing issues with the surface quality on the outside of the cup. I'm using Cura 4.6 and currently setup simple supports using the Cross type with walls to keep them from collapsing. The cross type creates four gaps in the support material to allow airflow between the outside walls and support wa
  16. Hi, I have two problems with my setup. I have an Anycubic i3 Mega-S running with the Ultimaker Cura 4.8.0, on Mac OS X Big Sur 11.2.1 (20D74). 1) Preview not appearing Sometimes (See my attachment) I have the problem, that the objects do not appear in the preview. After a restart the problem is in the most cases gone. How can I fix that? Of course, Extruder 1 and everything is activated. 2) Objects not moveable Sometimes I have the problems after importing a .stl-File, that I can't move the object on the printbed with the cursor. I can click it,
  17. Hi! I just started to develop plugins for Cura as I would need a shrinkage ratio that scales up the model. I would like to add a setting that would be called XY shrinkage percentage that shoud be between 0 and 3% and I would add the multiplication of this percentage by the resizing of the model so that it would scale silently in X and Y and the user would still be able to resize his model using the tools on the left. Sadly, I am still a beginner in the development world but I have been able to create the plugin so that it would be displayed in Cura. Now, I am in trouble f
  18. Hello, I’m having the following problem every time I start a print. The cooling fans don’t start automatically. I have to turn them on from the printer’s menu. Is there a bug in cura or in printer’s firmware? I use cura 4.8 and marlin firmware. Thank you.
  19. Hi All, New user and first time poster here. I just purchased a Tenlog TLD3Pro IDEX printer. They are a chinese company I know...But the printer is actually nice for the money. So the problem statement is that no matter what printer profile I use the slicer outputs the same start and end Gcode which my printer cannot use. The test prints are working great(these came on a SD card from the mfg and have the correct start and end gcode) and now I am attempting to slice files of my own in the CURA 4.8 engine that they provided an installer for, it has all the
  20. I am trying Cura looking for better quality prints on my Duplicator 4 printer. I am using a simple model I have printed with other software before. I have added Wanhao Duplicator 4s from the ADD a printer list. I prepare and slice the model and save it as X3G file. then copy it to a SD card. Once my extruder & printer bed have heated I set the printer to run from the SD card, the process starts as the printer LCD screen changes and shows progress as 0%, filament used as 0 and elapsed time starts counting. Beyond that the extruder does not extrude or even move. Nothing happens except t
  21. Hi everyone ! I am having trouble to identify an issue I am having with my 3d prints. I have put some picture so you can see what I am talking about. As you can see on the bottle, the print quality seems to be pretty good, however as you turn it arround, there is some weird stuff happening. I believe it is right before and right after the printer finished its line. To test this theory, I have designed an extremely simple piece and decided to put the seam line on the round part. You can see in blue that the seam line is prominent, I cannot put it in a corner
  22. How to use CURA with Zmorph VX 3D printer ?
  23. Having some issue with the PauseAtHeight.py in that, after slicing, printing either via OctoPrint or TF Card, the Ender 3Pro fails to pause and completes the print. What has been tried: Versions of CURA: 4.8 4.5 3.6 (per YouTube video on topic. Ender 3Pro Board: 32b - 4.2.2 Firmware Version: Marlin-bugfix-2.0. (compiled) I am curious if there is anything else I could attempt. I have reviewed the gCode, and the code is there. I would think that rolling back the firmware and bypassing the OctoPrint it should h
  24. Hi everyone ! I have just received my anycubic chiron which is my first 3D printer. I have set it up and print some calibration parts, and since then, I cannot solve an issue I am having on each print. At first I have looked and tweak a lot of settings on Cura such as speed, layer height, printing strategy and other. The prints have become better and better but I am having an issue that I cannot fix. It seems that the printer is doing wider or thinner section, this issue is happening every time at the same height. I have also tried to print other parts and they al
  25. I am trying to print a ~125mm diameter hollow cylinder with 3 walls on my custom coreXY printer. It is setup with a 0.6mm nozzle and a V6 volcano hot end. I am trying to print a 2.7mm wall with three 0.9mm wide 0.45mm high layers. No matter what combination of line width and many other settings I have tried I always end up with 4 walls including an inner wall with little or no extrusion. With PLA this just adds time to the print. However, with PETG there is a little oozing leaving small specks and then a gap when the next wall begins. How do I eliminate this useless extra inner wall? I have tr
