Still can't Get Cura to make a Decent Slice..


Recommended Posts

Posted · Still can't Get Cura to make a Decent Slice..

 Recent efforts to help me get a Large 137mb Radial Engine Model file helped  In the least identified the basic problem.. And I ' m grateful for the help.

 Plodding along in my own fashion .. I 've gotten the complete Engine Drawing as a Mesh File 

 2 different ones actually.. One via  Meshmixer  another from a New site: https://makeprintable.com

 The Meshmix one is a wee bit Klunky  /imprecise, the  Makeprintable one is  noticeably  better, not perfect / Ideal .. But Good 'nuff for my purposes. 

3 test prints later and the cylinders, only a few of them, seem to have aquired a case of Warts... Odd and ugly

 Looking into the cause.. it appears that the Problem surfaces when using layer view studying Curas' 'slice'.. in which  4  or more of the Cylinders (there are 9)   look like Cauliflowers .

 Zooming in on the  Slice with Layer view clearly shows that the thing is messed .. Why? this time.

How to Fix this  ??  and incidentally why?? those cyls  Which seem to follow the pattern/location rather than the model..as Rotating the engine  leaves the distortions in roughly the same place .

 Dunno  as I'm just guessing though. Is there a setting or fix to this?

Attaching my Mesh file as reference  It's a Big Un though

      • 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.
