flat overhang being printed in an angle


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · flat overhang being printed in an angle

Hey All.   I'm printing two piece with a tab and slot to join the parts. The slots are supposed to be flat overhangs which shows up in solid view but after slicing, they show up as angled in the layer view and is being printed that way.  I can't figure out why Cura would cha nge it.  It prints fine using S3D but I want to use Cura for the Ironing feature.  1.thumb.JPG.0963477bbc9cf16672226da47665e0d4.JPG2.thumb.JPG.0ed2af85c2f4848d10c98e9e368ae5cc.JPG

    I think you might have "make overhang printable" checked.


    If not then show us what the part looks like in xray view mode (there's normal mode, slice view and xray).  Does it show the overhang in xray mode?

    You must have checked it accidentally.  That should be off by default - it's pretty experimental and not useful for most prints.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
