color gaps

Recommended Posts

i'm getting gaps between my colors. i notice that your colors are nicely integrated.

i am using 123D and Cura.

my model is a key fob consisting of a single letter within a square base. in 123D my two objects are completely touching since i used the letter to carve out a space in the base. however, there are gaps between the letter and the base. so i tweaked all the letter-facing base surfaces 0.05mm in toward the letter, essentially making the base overlap with the outer edges of the letter. i also set Cura to overlap colors by 0.15.

i still get gaps in the same places. it's almost like my adjustments were ignored. i want 0 gap between the 2 colors.

suggestions anyone?

note: i have an image showing the problem, but i don't see any way to upload an image here.

    What printer do you have? An Ultimaker Original with dual extrusion upgrade?

    In legacy Cura, go to the machine settings and adjust the second extruder by the x and y offset you'll find there. There are a few designs on Youmagine and Thingiverse which allow for proper dual alignment.

      • 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
