Running Cura on non-Ultimaker

Recommended Posts

Posted · Running Cura on non-Ultimaker

Created g-codes on a few different models fro my Felix printer. Worked fine on single models however when I printed duplicates it was unacceptable. I used the same setting as the single prints, the duplicates were very "furry" between models and melty. Any suggestions?

Post a picture?

I'm guessing you had stringing.

Cura out of the box prints all the parts at the same time (first layer of every part - then it goes back and does second layer of every part).

But it prefers to print them one at a time. Printing one at a time is much faster (less retraction) and they come out better (no strings between the parts - no furry).

Go to preferences and answer all the questions about distance to stay away from the head - make sure you include any fan or other protuberance. Cura will print the parts one at a time starting from the edge farthest from the largest protuberance.

Make sure you also include a "gantry" value. If you leave it at zero ti will print all parts at once. If you have no gantry (no height limit) then set it to 200mm or some value taller than all your parts. If even one part is higher than the gantry value then it will print the parts all at once instead of one at a time.
