Huge shadow around volume


Recommended Posts

Hi, I model these wheel in fusion 360, nothing strange, exported it, when I open it in cura there is a huge dead zone around the volume, not allowing me to print multiple at once. Any idea how to overcome this problem?

    no, don't worry, this is the area the printhead including the fan above. Important when you want to print 'one at time' to avoid collision with other objects.

    If you want to stack items very close together, you can always multiply and arrange them in your CAD-editor, and save that as a new design. For example, in this way you can place items in a ring (otherwise the area in the ring would be wasted), or in some other hollow area. Or you can place items in-between other items with fingers, and so on. For your wheels, you could place them in a very tight hexagonal pattern. The printer will consider it as one design, and print all together.

      • 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
