box is not printing

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I am having an issue with printing my small box, it turns out that in the layer view ,there is multiple lines as shown in the pic and that too in circle, and the printer stops once finished printing those layers, even if the object given to print was a cube.

i have no idea why circle layer pops in, in the layer view.

this looks like you have a raft enabled. Tab 'Build Plate Adhesion' there is the choice of skirt-brim-raft.

And your box is very small, note that the nozzle is 0.4 mm and needs to go around your model. What printer do you have? Can you use a 0.25 nozzle?

thanks peggyb, let me try what you have advised, the printer is all custom made, Fisnar, and we have programmed it for printing. i know there is no issue with the printer , it has to be with the Cura software Ver (2.3.1), and maybe like you said, try different sizes of the box.

    • "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.
