Hi togehther,

 

1. Unwanted lines:
=> I wonder how I can make Cura 3.6.0 not always print unwanted lines in the print object on the first layer.
Of course I activated Retraction and Z Hop - but somehow the Cura does not seem to care.
Below is an example.

 

These arrows marked with the red are wrong. That's a pure travel. But with full filament.
In the finished print it looks like the second picture.
Attached also pics, how my settings look like.



2. Why is Cura only traveling across printed areas?

It seems like this is only 3.6.0 - but I'm not sure.

E. g. to travel from top right to bottom right, Cura drives extra over the middle left. Exactly over allready printed areas. This is unnecessary and not desirable.

=> How can I turn this off?

Also Z Hop did not work. I am pretty sure, that this behavior was earlier not.

 

Regards,

Hein

    did this work? I have the same issue. it's super annoying. Although i have 4.1 and zhop creates a corrupt command in the gcode so i cant use it until they fix it. This is the only thing different with my settings.

    See this thread, it has a workaround for that bug:

      • 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.
