Help, parts not showing up in final print!

Posted · Help, parts not showing up in final print!

There's a few possibilities.  But first ALWAYS view your part in layer view (as shown in screen shot) before printing it so you don't waste time as about half the time I slice I catch something (like this) in slice view.

 

The first obvious possibity is that the part is less than 0.3mm thick.  I know you have Cura set to layer height 0.1 but the first layer (initial layer) defaults to 0.3mm.  So try setting that to 0.1 and see what happens in slice view.  Or thinner.  how thin is that part?

 

Another possibility is that the part is not one solid object (part isn't manifold) and that the part that isn't printing either has holes in its walls or is missing a bottom or has extra internal walls.  View your part in xray view to see if this is true.  Any red areas in xray view means the part is not a solid.  It's not manifold.  You can fix it with the netfabb free repair service here: https://service.netfabb.com/login.php

 

Another possibility is you set Z to a negative value.  Click on the part in normal view and some icons appear at the bottom.  Click on the move icon and it should show the Z position to be zero.  If not set it to zero.

    • 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
