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!
