Posted · question about Cura printing

Hello,

i am a very beginner in 3D Printing. Bought a Hictop Prusa Printer with Auto Bed Leveling which works fine!!

I print out the Testfile, which was in the package, and it works really great!

Then i build just a Testobject for testing, very easy.

Ohh...i see now, i can not attach anything here ?

Ok, i put all files on my googledrive. :

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzwrlDHodbwvZ09MU2FTY21POVE/view?usp=sharing

Now, it prints very good, but only two sides of the Model and i dont know why ?

So...what did i wrong please?

In Cura, i use Cura 15.04.6, it is fully displayed.

An additioonal question...what is the difference between Cura 15....and Cura 2....?

Thanks

Matthias

    Hi Matthias,

     

    Now, it prints very good, but only two sides of the Model and i dont know why ?

    So...what did i wrong please?

    Seems like the two no-printing walls are slightly smaller than the others.

    Try "Shell thickness" a bit smaller than 1mm e.g. 0.9mm

    Or design your test object so that the 4 walls have the same thickness.

     

    In Cura, i use Cura 15.04.6, it is fully displayed.

    Even in the layer-view? I don't think so ;)

     

    An additioonal question...what is the difference between Cura 15....and Cura 2....?

    Puuuh, this would become a very long answer.

    Basicly the 2.xx is a complete rewrite of the 15.xxx software with new features, more parameters to fiddle with and a new GUI. But it's still "Beta".

    For a newbie in 3D-printing I would suggest that you stay with the 15.xxx version and make your experiences and get become able to understand how the things and parameters work together.

    Regards Bernd

      • 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
