CURA 2.6 nozzle diameter display error on Ultimaker 2 Extended+

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I'm using an Ultimaker 2 Extended+ with the latest CURA 2.6 as my default slicer.

it was doing very good until i swapped my 0.4 nozzle to 0.25 to print some fine details model.

as usual i set the nozzle profile to the default 0.25 in CURA 2.6 & save the gcode on the SD card.

the issue appeared when my UM2 Ext+ display the gcode as 0.4mm dia nozzle instead of the 0.25mm.

i first thought that it's might be only a glitch & just try to print it... but the machine printed it as 0.4mm.

(i know this because the melted filament was feeding too fast & oozed from the extruder)

after that i use back the previous CURA 2.5 to slice the same model with the same setting.

the error was solved, the machine display correctly as 0.25mm nozzle & printed well.

does anyone have this issue with CURA 2.6?

(mind that it's not the 2.6 beta version, i'm using the final release version)

thanks guys & happy printing!

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
