Noob needs help with Cura 3.1, or printing

Recommended Posts

Please excuse me if I'm asking questions that have already been answered. I'm new to 3d printing and I've designed an object that I've had several stages of development, with only minor changes. I had no problems printing stages 1 - 4, but stages 5 and 6 want to print off the build platform of my printer. I'm using Cura 3.1 for the slicer, an MP select mini V2 printer and Hatchbox ABS filament.

 

I would appreciate any help you could give me on settings that might cure this problem.

 

I've attached two of the .gcode files. (Cover4 prints as it should)

MPMV2_VoltmeterCover4.gcode

12_VoltMeterCover6.gcode

I just realized that the versions that printed correctly were from Cura on my laptop and the versions that didn't print correctly were from the same version of Cura on my desktop. I tried the newest version with the Cura on my laptop and it printed correctly. I guess I better check my settings.

 

I'll try to work through any future problems before posting.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
