question about Cura printing

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,

    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
