Issues with Cura vs Print Studio code, and filament extrusion

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
