Cura not switching to .8 printcores


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura not switching to .8 printcores

I switched out both .4 printcores to .8 printcores.

But in Cura it does not switch to .8 printcores. When I click on the printcore2 tab I see 'Automatic BB0.8' and BB0.4. When I select the Automatic BB0.8, it stays on BB 0.4.

I can't get it to switch to the new installed core BB0.8.

Any ideas.

(This is a new UM3).

    Could you remove & re-add the machine? I see some issues in the log that should be fixed by doing that.

    Could you also remove your logs? They are quite big now, so for the next time it's a bit easier if you only have the latest :)

    I think this may be related, but it's not recognizing the nfc spool of UM pva. I select pva it doesn't like it. I select um natural pva and it doesn't like it.

    I'm at a loss.

    Is there a trick to getting the nfc spool to get recognized. Also, I deleted the log, deleted the printer out of Cura. Then restored, it does the same thing. I even powered off the UM3 and repeated a few times. Still the same.

    Go to System->Maintenance->Diagnostics menu in the printer. There are two NFC checks. The first one checks if the NFC hardware is present, the second one reads the tags of the spools (id + material type per printcore).

    Yes, the printer sees that the NFC is present.

    And it labels each of the spools of material correctly. 1-PLA and 2-Natural PVA. Yesterday, I did a factory reset on the printer and put the AA/BB .4 back in.

    And I did a calibrate. It (Cura) recognizes the .4 AA and BB .4.

    I will try the .8 AA and BB tomorrow.

    I have'nt replaced the 0.4 printcores yet because I'm getting the following error:

    I replaced the AA/BB .4 with the AA/BB .8 and I get the same results. The UM3 recognized both AA/BB .8 printcores.

    I'm at a lost.

    I meant that last sentence to be the UM3 did not recognize the AA/BB .8 printcores.

    I upgraded the firmware to stable version 3.7.7.20170627. I changed the AA printcore to AA/0.8. The same action occurs. The selection stays at AA/0.4 and does not switch to AA/0.8.

    I upgraded to the test firmware, and I have the same results.

    Could you clear out your log files (delete them), try again and send me those logs?

    ...but this means that there's something wrong with the printcores and not with Cura.

    If the printcore itself - (and the printer as a consequence of this) is reporting the wrong size, how should Cura be able to correct this?

    Is it possible, that your printcores are labelled wrong, or programmed wrong?
