Slight line offset


EVRC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Slight line offset

So I’m printing a tall thin object. It gets a slightly offset line right in the middle. I used PLA on fast settings and iXT-CF20 at about 70mm/s. I was intending to run the carbon at 40mm/s but didn’t realize my settings on Cura didn’t go  to the printer (different material selected in Cura than what the printer had selected). Do you think this is just from speed?

    Yeah, a good chance this comes from speed.  I would try printing it again at about half speed and see how it goes.  Or maybe try a smaller test object and see if you get the same effect and than adjust the speed before you set about printing the larger item.

    Small objects don’t do it. I’m sure if I slowed down it would look better. I think it’s the traverse speed doing as the line happens after it goes over a gap. The model came out decent enough to use. It’s a bed cover for an rc truck.

      • 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
