Cura issues with layer

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I've just started using Cura because I like how it integrates to Octoprint however I'm having issues with the print please see the attached image don't even know how to describe the issue worth noting is a print sliced with Simplify 3d turns out just fine on the same printer with the same filament and temp.

Any help appreciated!

That could be it, yes. Make sure filament diameter is set to whatever your filament is. Basically it's either levelled too far away from the bed or you are underextruding. I can't tell which it is unless you print more layers to exclude bed leveling issues.

Thanks for the suggestion adjusted everything again and filament was set to 1.75 now it looks a lot better but when trying to get the print off the bed it falls apart to due bad layer bonding just trying the same print with my S3D profile again to make sure it's not any of the settings.

    • "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.
