Cura and wall

Daid, I've got a question about how Cura generate the Gcode for walls.

i've got a model like a box with wall of 2mm. In Cura, this is my param in Cura :

Nozzle : 0,4

Wall : 0,8

So to make my 2mm wall the Ultimaker avec to do 2 lines for exterior wall, 2 lines for interior wall. So there is 0,4mm left. To make this 0,4mm the ultimaker shake a lot (you can't see it, but you can hear it and fell it) instead of made an other 0,4mm line. These micro vibrations are very annoying because after 15-20 layers it may cause issues (My radial bearings inside the heated head move and left there places. I've to replace it each 10 minutes durring the printing to not fail my print...)

    It tires to make that .4mm fill in diagonal lines which is tricky since there isn't much room for diagonal lines (in theory zero room).

    Anyway it sounds like you need to redesign your heated bed. Or maybe you just need to change your print speed a bit so it doesn't vibrate at exactly the frequency that is messing up your "radial bearings".

      • 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
