Wire Printing has me a bit flummoxed

Posted (edited) · Wire Printing has me a bit flummoxed

U2+/Cura 3.2.1. using ABS

I'm new to 3D printing so please explain yourself maybe in more detail than you would normally - I'd like to crack this nut!

 

Wire printing,,, so I selected that under Experimental Settings, put on the 0.8 nozzle, cued Cura on that.  I had Brim selected

but it only printed a single outline and then tried to outline (smaller, separate from single Brim outline) the object's base edge. 

Wouldn't create a uniform line tracing the base, just laying down short/blobby lengths then a blank space, another blob w/a short

line of filament and,,, I Aborted.

Tried it again and same result.

(I use an adhesion sheet on my bed glass.)

 

After searches on Forum and Google  can't find anything on tweaking for the Wire Print function.  Is there a

benevolent guru out there who can enlighten me with some suggestions?  Hope so,

      • 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
