Cura Under Extruding


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura Under Extruding

Please let me know if anyone has any suggestions for why Cura is under extruding in the middle of the "O" in the word "You".  You can actually see through to the tan table in parts of the middle of the "O".  This is after two layers of printing.  Coast is turned off.


Here's Cura's slicer view showing that Cura does want to print a solid in the center of the "O", but as shown above for some reason Cura is under extruding there.  Any help is appreciated.

    This is definitely a problem with Cura 2.6 under extruding in some small spaces like the center of the "O". It also happens in the center of "B". The weird thing is that it doesn't happen in all small spaces, just some of them.

    Does anyone know if earlier versions work better for small spaces or if there is a special setting to deal w/ the issue?

    Is anyone else printing text size 9.5 mm and having problems (or success)?

    I'm using a skirt around the part which is 120x110 mm so the exruder is fully primed when it starts printing and the under extrusion happens when filling in other letters as well, but not all of them. In fact some O's get completely filled in and others have under extrusion. This is what is such a mystery to me and the reason why it seems Cura might be the reason for the under extrusion.

    Under extrusion does not happen with KISSlicer and Simplify3D when filling in the letters.

      • 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
