Default Setting Cura vs Simplify3D for Ultimaker 2 Extended+

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I made a few prints with the defaults setting for Silver PLA plastic with Cura and Simplify3D but have inconsistent prints between both software. 

With this filament, Cura just prints perfectly but till this moment I couldn't get the exact print quality with simplify3D even using the profile configuration assistant exactly for this printer. With simplify3D I get blobs or zits on the walls, gaps in thin walls, oozing or bad finish on top layers. I trying everything on simplify 3D and can't get rid of every problem at the same time even when replicating every parameter possible on cura.

 

Do anyone also have this problem?

One tip I’ve had luck  with...

 

In Cura, go to your machine settings and set to Marlin.  Then in Cura you can see the speeds , retract distance and so on

 

For my UM2+ I set the retract distance to 6.9 and matched things up from there.   

 

Overall I find Cura does OK.  The latest Cura I did a print with had a few problems so I went and did it again in S3D.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
