New version of Cura stops printing mid-job


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · New version of Cura stops printing mid-job

I'm having issues with the latest version of Cura 3.4.1 on my CR-10 Mini.   Since updating to this version my printer seems to stop half way through many print jobs but not all of them.  It's very inconsistent now.   I connect my printer directly to my computer via USB and this was never a problem before.  Same printer, same usb cable, same computer.

 

Any suggestions?  Thanks

    I see I'm not the only one with this problem. I created a post about this yesterday.  I've also had it unload the filament mid print job.  It seems so random. I went back to using v2.7 and it works fine. Mine is printing to a Mk2s via USB.

    Are you saying you are having this trouble running your print from the SD Card?

    Thanks for the info. I thought it might be a USB problem but with your information it's not limited to USB. Thanks again.

    i just downgraded to cura 3.3.1 and am in the middle of a 5 hour print, so far so good ?

     

    Update: I printed a 12 hour job overnight and it printed completely without any issues.  Stick with cura 3.3.1 if you're having problems.

    I had the same issue with 3.4, i came home and my print had stopped before it was finished and retracted the filament back 30-40 cm's or so in the Bowden tube.

     

    That has never happened before and I have been using Cura since the old 12. Versions

    I'm surprised we haven't received a response from cura.

    I downloaded the newest version on Windows 10. Had many issues. Went back to version 3.3.1 and started having the print not finishing completely problem. Ran great on Windows 8.1. I'm wondering if if it's a Windows 10 compatibility issue.

    I had the same problem before when I try to Print via USB ... I solved it by doing this:

     

    1- Disable Z Hop When Retracted.

    2- Enable Avoid Printed Parts When Traveling.

    3- Set Combing Mode to: Not in Skin.

     

    The above 3 settings are found under Travel.

    In addition to the above solution, and in case your printer is any of Creality CR series, then I advice to set these:

     

    Under Material:

    1- Set the Retraction Distance to 6.5 mm.

    2- Set the Retraction Speed to 40 mm/s.

     

    Under Speed:

    1- Set the Print Speed to 40 mm/s ... Never go above 40 mm/s.

    2- Set the Infill Speed to 40 mm/s also.

    3- Set the Outer Wall Speed and Inner Wall Speed both to 20 mm/s.

    4- Uncheck Equalize Filament Flow.

    5- Uncheck Enable Acceleration Control.

    6- Uncheck Enable Jerk Control.

     

    Under Infill:

    1- Check Connect Infill Lines.

    2- Check Infill Before Walls.

     

    In case you wanted to use a raft, then under Build Plate Adhesion:

    1- Set the Raft Air Gap to to 0.2 mm.

    2- Set Initial Layer Z Overlap to 0.2 mm.

     

    These settings will improve your print quality a lot, but it will increase the print time ... These are the best settings for any Creality CR series printers.

     

    Try my advice, and let me know if your print quality is improved.

    Hi I have a Anycubic I3 mega S. I updated my Cura and got exactly this problem. Checked all the machine settings and levelled the bed just to make sure it wasn't a machine problem. still some prints worked and others failed.

    Going to download 3.3.1 and see if that works.

    I always print using the SD card.
