Hello everyone,

I am new to the 3D printing. I have a component to print which i designed and exported from Solidworks. This is a simple plud which requires a support material to print out that shape. I am using one of our  printer which is ultimaker 3+ with two nozzles.

The issue I have is an additional model/square block appearing in the corner of the printing table. This item is not part of my design, it is adding a waste material and printing time. 

Please could someone let me know how can I get rid of that model?

I checked STL model in solidoworks and I cannot see this square block at all. I have tried different stl setting with different quality but also didn't help.

I attached snapshots from cura software and also from solidoworks.

 

Thank you in advance for your help.

    There may be a setting in Cura to turn it off

     

    That setting is aptly named "Enable Prime Tower". You can find it using the Search field atop the custom 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
