In cura most layers of the model wont print

What the print should look like: 5a33363174a59_Screenshot(158).thumb.png.8e7306ae8ed1d1758840cad426d17ff3.png

How it prints: (2x smaller and is missing many layers, gets stuck when loading at 61%) 5a3336309a22f_Screenshot(159).thumb.png.43dcda6929507a3e0361d87c24933361.png5a3336309a22f_Screenshot(159).thumb.png.43dcda6929507a3e0361d87c24933361.png

    First of all I would print it with the circle down flat on the bed.  There is a rotate feature in cura. Once rotated with circle "down" you can disable support and the part will print much more beautifully and also much faster.

    It's hard to tell what the problem is but from looking at the pictures it looks like your part has an outer and an inner wall with nothing in between.  So if you pass an imaginary line along the rotational axis of this part (the tip to the base) you will pass through 4 (not 2!) sets of meshes (surfaces).  First the tip of the part, then - maybe a half millimeter later a second surface.  Then nothing for a short distance - maybe 5mm? And then 2 more meashes.  Is this explanation clear so far?

    Anyway the thickness of these walls are much less than 0.8mm (the minimum wall thickness for a .4mm nozzle as it makes two passes.

    Did you create this part yourself in CAD?

    View the part in "xray mode".  You have your normal mode shown and slice view shown but there is another view mode called xray.  In that mode anything colored red (dark red, light red, bright red) is a problem.  I don't think you have this issue but that's another possibility.

      • 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
