Printing error with Cura 15.02.1

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

we have some experience with Cura software and printing with Ultimaker but this is the first time we have this kind of problem:

- we imported the CAD file as .stl into Cura 15.02.1 and after making the print settings we generated the printing file g.code


Note: We are not using the new version of Cura 15.04.6 because we couldn`t use the maximum printing size and in the old version we can. This must be a bug?

- we directly went on to print (see Photo_1) and just at the end of printing, the printer left out a few layers and wasn't able to finish the print.


-To check if this was a file problem we imported the g.code again into Cura 15.02.1 to see the printing simulation. There we discovered that the layers are already missing at the same point where the printer did miss the layers, although the CAD file is one closed shape.


Someone had this problem before? Thanks :)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
