Help with the printer setting

Posted · Help with the printer setting

Hi, I'm a newbie, I have couple of questions

I was wondering if Cura software can print a scale model of 8 mm in length and 2.5 mm in height?

If so what could be the setting for the software for the print to be accomplished?

If the print is to be successful, then how can I increase the height Raft or the Brim and which one would you prefer the Raft or the Brim and why?

Do I have to manually feed the desired data in the Start/End G-Code or does the software calculate these parameters once the desired scale of the model is selected?

before starting the print I have noticed that some part of the model are invisible when viewed layer by layer.... does that mean that the software is unable to capture those part and would not print? If this is so, I bring you to my previous question, What is the smallest scale at which the software can recognize the model? I tried my luck with a biplane with the length of the fuselage being 24 mm, but all the printer could do and print is a small messy ball of PLA starting 10 mm above the heatbed.

If Cura cannot give me the desired output of the scale of the model I'm aiming for, is there another alternative software which could give me the results?

I have searched the net for the online tutorial for printer setting, the software.... the entire deal in short, but most of the videos are restricted to big models... if you could provide me with any kind of link which can educate and broaden my mind about the printer... I would much appreciate

      • 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
