Cura 2.5 please fix the annoying Combing grinding and rumbling


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 2.5 please fix the annoying Combing grinding and rumbling

We've all heard it...the rumbling and grinding sound as Cura's default settings (Combing Mode All) mashes the nozzle against the print, making the print bed bounce and just, generally, not good


Can you guys please, please fix this? It's so annoying.

I find myself using Simplify3D more and more as Cura does things like this.

If I set Combing to Off, I get an awful finish.

Please don't tell me I need to set z-hop or any other crazy things.

Honestly, Cura on default settings shouldn't perform so badly.

    If you follow my suggestions to getting your parts to stick like hell the rumbling can be ignored but if it really bugs you then you can indeed get rid of it.

    If it's the same rumbling I have experienced, then it's caused by bad quality infill. The strings of infill break and build up in some spots but not others. It's also mainly caused by underextrusion of the infill. Cura 2.X by default prints infill faster. Usually too fast. So change the infill speed to be the same as the default printing speed. Also sometimes the line width on the infill is smaller than the nozzle. I recommend you set that back up to be the same as nozzle width. Or at least very close (I had a .4mm infill with a .8mm nozzle once - not very strong infill).

    Or just get rid of infill. I find it's less necessary than you might think. Or try that really cool gradual infill feature where it does less infill in the more open areas of the print. That really speeds things up significantly without hurting strength (usually). But you really have to tweak it quite a bit (the two numbers that affect the variable infill amounts).

      • 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
