Posted · Cura with my mendel90 are printing blobs of plastic

Hello everyone!

I'm a brand newbie to the Cura world. I've been using Slic3r in the past.

I'm trying to see if Cura fixes some printing errors I get with Slic3r and I can't seem to print with Cura.

I've chosen the Mendel90 printer, it doesn't recognise it via USB. I've read a few articles about setting up the Mendel90 in Cura, but they're old. And now that there is a printer in the list called Mendel90 I'd assume they're no longer applicable anyhow.

When I slice the STL with Cura my mendel90 prints blobs of plastic. Large blobs, in the middle of the correct lines in the bottom layer of the shape. It's clearly way out of alignment somehow. I've printed out the same STL, using Slic3r and this Mendel90, with no real issues (besides some mysterious lines, from what I assume is the slicing errors). There certainly hasn't been any blobs. I've put in the same temperature, infill, layer height, etc settings....

If anyone can help, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you.

Nathan

      • 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
