Can't get Cura to work well with my Prusa i3 MK3.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Can't get Cura to work well with my Prusa i3 MK3.

I really would like to get Cura working as it's by far my favorite slicer. 

I've had numerous issues trying to get Cura to reliably print using my MK3. I've also used Prusa Control and Slic3r Prusa Edition, and those two slicers work perfectly. Everything comes out fine.

The issue I'm having with Cura at this time is with supports, specifically. 

I am trying to print a Nintendo Switch joycon grip (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2769344). I have previously printed this object in Prusa Control and it came out with no issues.

I have two main issues with supports:

  • The supports that are going from the heatbed to the actual printed object are too attached. I wasn't able to fully get the supports off. They were basically fused to the print.

  • The main issue that I'm having though, and the reason that I had to cancel this print,  was that when it started putting in supports above the printed part they would start to move around when printed on.

Here are images of what it looked like:

And here is a video of what is going on during the print.

Does anyone know how I can fix this issue?
