incomplete gcode, cannot save on sd card, print stops too early

Posted (edited) · incomplete gcode, cannot save on sd card, print stops too early

Hi. Does anyone has the same issue with Cura not working properly?: A stl put into Cura appears to get transformed into pathes/layers ok (pic 1) 5a3319991478b_stlincura.thumb.JPG.df3ca139820c1c624d2bdb4282dfb2ff.JPG

- but fails to save on SD-Card. It`s possible to save it on harddrive - but when opening that gcode in Cura it shows (2nd pic) 5a33199928a29_savedgcodeopenedinCura.thumb.JPG.d0de15bddaf1f9903e1c5ea487b35921.JPGthat there are layers missing so that the printer is stopping then. The stl is fine - no open edges or else... checked with Rhino and netfab. Also the walls are at least 1 mm -using a 0,4mm nozzle. Happened with different stls. Any hints where to search the cause for this? I use a very good PC and Cura 15.04.4 (-and didn´t have the issue with former versions...) Thanks, Lars

    let's see, you can always try a "file / Reset profile to default" to make sure you did not do anything strange to settings.

    Next thing to play with are the "fix horrible" in the expert settings, think these can cause some strange behavior.

    Did you view your model in X-ray mode?

    "file / Reset profile to default" not available in 15.04.4

    "fix horrible" ...?! if you mean repair options : didn´t change outcome

    Tried reinstalling cura and also with older versions of Cura - same problems...

    Xray looks fine

    Sclicing Engine says(I don`t know how to find an error there...)

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
