Weird diagnal line on sides of print

Posted · Weird diagnal line on sides of print



im using curaengine in repetier to slice and i get these lines on the sides of multiple prints. You can see it in the picture on the sloped area where the light is reflecting. i have watched it print and the head stops at those locations. they are not layer change marks nor are they, ummm ?row?, changing marks they are basically over extrusion from the head stopping. i found in the g code that the head moves on the x axis .001 mm at that spot. why does it do this? the stl file has a perfectly straight face and it even does it on calibration cubes

    So STL files can't do rectangles - they do triangles.  That's the edge of the triangle dividing that rectangle into 2 triangles. You can see it in the g codes above as well.


    Your printer should not slow down so much at that spot.  You should get Marlin firmware.  Marlin looks at the angle change (which is either 0 degrees or close to it) and realizes it doesn't need to slow down (for a 10 degree angle change it only slows down a little).  Really really old firmware from like 7 years ago would stop at every vertex.  Just like your photo shows.

      • 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
