Issues with Cura vs Print Studio code, and filament extrusion


Recommended Posts

Posted · Issues with Cura vs Print Studio code, and filament extrusion

I'm having an issue when I am trying to 3D print a file, the filament is not extruding properly.

When I compare the exported gcode from Print Studio and Cura, the Cura code generally has higher numerical values associated with the e code and f code than Print Studio does. It seems like Print studio isn't printing properly, and has a lower extrusion than Cura does when it first starts printing.

I'm not sure why the codes in Print Studio have such different numbers than Cura has. Has anyone had this issue and know how to fix the settings in print studio so that they are similar to Cura or they actually work?

I've attached a photo below to show how the codes are different.

    There are many reasons why they might be different. The file on the left is ultigcode which does extrusion in cubic mm such that the same gcode file will work with either 1.75mm filament or 3mm filament. This works on UM2 series printers (not UMO I don't think, and not UM3 I don't think and not most non-ultimaker printers).

    That's the most likely explanation.

    Other reasons might be someone played with "flow" or filament diamter but probably it's the ultigcode things.

    You can disable that in cura in the machine settings.

      • 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
