Additional cube model printed

Hello and thank you for the welcome.

 

I attach a picture of the small cube that was printed. This lengthened the

time the model took and print and I could find no way to switch it off or

any information either in the manual or on the web.

    Is this the wipe tower?  

     

    There should be a checkbox in cura somewhere for "wipe tower".  If you look at your part in slice view and you see this cube and then you uncheck "wipe tower" it should go away.

     

    The purpose of the wipe tower is that sometimes the idle nozzle leaks a bit with a tiny "sausage" sticking out the bottom.  If you don't wipe it then you get that sausage attached to the side of your print - and one on every layer potentially.

     

    But the temperature control of idle nozzles is so good now in cura that this probably is not an issue and you probably don't need the tower.

    Thank you gr5 & |Robert|

    Appreciate your time in replying.

    Cura only started to show the 'tower' a couple of days ago. I didn't turn it on, so perhaps it occurred when I updated Cura

    to the latest version.

    Thank you

    In CURA, it is found on Dual Extrusion -> Enable Prime Tower.

      • 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
