Posted · Cura bug? Brim is selected, Not printing,

I dont know what's going on. I have done about 13 hours of small prints this week. Same settings.

Popped open my new 2kg roll of clear colorfabb xt and have had nothing but issues.

First issue was simply the settings for this filament. To think the colorfabb color stuff that

works great printing at temp 180-210 to this clear stuff needing to be at 240 and above...

Anyways. for some stupid reason my Brim setting, which is checked and all within normal

settings wont print! I noticed something was up when I first started a print and the printer

even skipped making a normal parameter around where it's going to print at the start of the print.

And it now wont print Brims...Which when you are printing a ton of small parts comes in handy!

    Have you changed the "Brim line amount" setting under Expert settings perhaps?

    Also, XT is a chemically completely different material from PLA so it's not all that strange that the print settings are different.

    Never touched the Brim settings since I got the machine

    Maybe your part isn't touching the glass - I've seen that before. Can you post the STL file somewhere and/or a screen shot of cura showing the bottom layer?

    Made a flat shape in 1234 Design. Exported it. opened it in cura. Rotated it 90 degrees so it was flat. Cura auto aligns it down to the bed. Doesnt have a first layer in layer view. Rotated it again long ways. It shows up. Rotated it back and it  wont show up again.

    Very annoying. Its a simple RING shape. Didnt rotate it in the 2 other 3d programs I made it in.

    I made a cylinder shape. exported it and tried to open it in cura. Same thing.

    I started a print. It prints the brim. When the print fails I abort it and start it up again. The brim doesnt print on that file or anything else on the memory card. The gcode shouldnt change or lose layers just from sitting inside the printer.

    If anyone else has this issue. Didnt change anything. Disabled advance settings. Went back and my brims were back. Put back in the same settings and it seems to work.

    Don't know why resetting it seemed to do the trick.

    Before that rotating the model and rotating it back to the same position also brought them back.

    I had the same issue, fixed it by changing my initial layer height from 0.1 to 0.2.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
