ulti 2 extended, Cura 2.3.1, octoprint, reprap settings under extruding


Recommended Posts

Posted · ulti 2 extended, Cura 2.3.1, octoprint, reprap settings under extruding

So right now I'm looking at base settings without really making any significant changes. If I load a file (a small hinge for example) for testing, I get two completely different results from using ultigcode flavor loaded to an SD card and reprap settings file loaded through octoprint.

Printing through SD card I get the normal expected (good) results. Now through the reprap settings, The only thing I changed was making sure the material data matched that of the filament and what's normally used on the printer itself, and slowed the print down. What I'm getting is thin lines/layers. Outer shell sometimes not touching, also along with the infill not making contact with either the shell also or to other infill lines. I've included a screenshot of the settings. Also note, I use the default Reprap GCode that's added to the machine profile.

I like having remote control of what I'm printing, so would like to use Octoprint...but not at the cost of loosing quality. I've tried many...many variation of settings to control extrusion, but results are always the same. I'll even hear the feeder click as it fails to extrude that fast, which I won't hear if I use direct printing ultigcode version. Any clues of what else I can fiddle with would be great. Thanks

        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.
