Print Missing Layer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print Missing Layer

Every time I try a print, it misses the exactly the same layers, all in the same region. It has been sliced with different settings, and different versions of Cura. Has anyone got any ideas for what could be causing the missing layers?

    Hi and welcome,

     

    What printer is it (you can add that to your profile).

     

    As it's always on the same height it's most probably hardware related and not software (i mean not slicing issue).

     

    Check the Z-Screw or maybe print a simple model (like a cube) to check if the problem occurs at the same height, analyse what is happening.

    Thanks very much! 

    I'm using a TronXY X1, right now my profile is saying I can't edit it. 

     

    I've tried lubricating the z screw, which made a slight improvement, but didn't fix the issue. 

     

    It seems possible it's underextrusion from watching the print, but I have no idea why it's so localised, or how to fix it.

    Hard to say like that because i don't know the TronXY printer

     

    Check anything that could be blocking extrusion or the Z part, if possible make your z go up and down a few times and check if anything seems to block or skip

    Maybe you should ask on user groups or facebook pages for the tronxy printers, i'm pretty sure you can find more experienced users there

      • 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.
