Cura showing extra shadow and printer prints (all models)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura showing extra shadow and printer prints (all models)

Hello,

 

since the last 2 updates every model I add to cura has a shadow present on the edge of the build plate.

The printer tries to print this as well, but it just prints in the air and makes a mess of it.

It seems to be caused by using support as it's removed when I add none. It just makes no sense to add support there.

 

Does anyone know how this could be caused?

 

Wireframe, Solid and Layer view show no model at all at that spot

The shadows on the side is swown by cura as these area's can not be reached by the printer. If you print dual extrusion both nozzles need to be able to reach the area, therefore you loose a bit of space in dual vs single extrusion.

 

I'm pretty curious about the air printing..... can you replicate it? can you show a video?

It seems it happens when I use the 2nd extruder (AA 0.8mm) as support, if i switch it around the shadow goes away you can see this on the images below.

 

Since there is no support being printed at the moment I can't make a video, but you can see some of the leftovers (I removed the rest)

That round shadow is the priming tower location. When you use dual extrusion, it will pop up. You can turn it on or off at the dual extrusion tabs.
