Minimum line width (px) for image import to take into account?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Minimum line width (px) for image import to take into account?



Due to fan breakdown I'm currently using my printer as pen plotter. I've already switched from gcodetools to Cura as my image to gcode converter, yet I'm having a huge issue - looks like Cura's jpg to stl converter doesn't detect lines thinner than 3px, what usually results in lack of contour or dot spam, both breaking the output print. Of course I can enlarge the lines at the image editing stage, but this makes all lines thicker, what blurs most of details.


Is there any way to decrease minimum requied line width (even if it means editing source code)?


Cura 2.7 on W10 (because 3.2 crashes when slicing output stl).

    Ok, already solved it by increasing slicing resolution and image DPI.

      • 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
