weird bug - extra sprinkles of objects

Posted · weird bug - extra sprinkles of objects

Hi all,

I was using the Cura beta 2.6.1 for a while. I printed in Nylon without support material and they were OK.

Today, I tried to print in Nylon and PVA as support material - a strange extra structure appeared (see images attached). This happened with every model I loaded when I changed the setting to include PVA as the support material.

I recently upgraded to Cura 2.6.2 and the problem still persists.

Did anyone have a similar issue?

Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

Your help would be much appreciated.

    OK so I also changed the material settings to see which ones show this error when selecting to print PVA support material.

    Material settings that show the problem:


    Material settings that don't show the problem:

    ABS, PLA, PP

    The sprinkles are testament of our Dutch culture! Once they've been printed, put them on your bread and enjoy.

    They are intended. It's actually the nozzle wiping off dripped filament and purging a bit extra before starting with the prime tower. We've purposefully distributed them with the golden ratio along the inside of the prime tower in order to prevent them all from clumping together (which topples the prime tower).

    That extra object you have circled is the priming tower. Under the dual extrusion section, you will see it is checked.


    True, Kmanstudios.

    It's not on by default for all materials (for example it's not on by default for PLA), but for CPE, CPE+, NYLON, PC, TPU 95A, it's on by default to help create a cleaner print. PLA tends to print okay without it. You can choose to turn it on or off, but for a material where Cura has it on by default...it's probably a good idea to leave it on.

      • 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
