Weird bug with Cura 3.1.0 -- may be specific to my model?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Weird bug with Cura 3.1.0 -- may be specific to my model?

I was making an insulating spacer for something at work and noticed the print doing something strange... The skirt is printed under the part. I assumed it had shifted since its a small part and i didn't glue it or anything, so i checked the layers in Cura and -- Nope! Somehow this is the skirt that Cura decided my part needs.


I checked and the bug is recreatable (at least it is when using the settings shown in the screenshots)


1. Open Cura 3.1.0 (latest version)
2. Open spacer.STL in Cura
3. Rotate part onto end (Red direction 90 deg forward)
4. View layers.

I'm not sure if there's an official bug reporting location or not, so I'm just putting it here. Has anyone else seen this happen?

    I've had this happen when the model isn't in full contact with the build plate (in Cura). It's either too high or at an angle.

    It seems the model is not entirely flat on the bottom. Try sinking it into the build plate a tiny bit and see if the skirt starts generating correctly.

      • 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
