question about Cura printing

Recommended Posts

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. :

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

    • "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.
