Cura 3.6 produce skipping

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.6 produce skipping

I just upgraded from 3.41 to 3.6 and now I experience strange noises from the printer associated with either X or Y skipping. Marlin have not changed, and it sound like the printer get very fast movement instruction , such that the printer cannot handle. I tested this on my CR10 4S, (The Ceality have primary y axis skips).  At first I checked my stepper, belt etc, the bed is smooth, eventualty I replace the driver chip, then the motherboard, reprogram Marlin, revert to Creality stock setting,  but no avail.  Then I moved my model (to fit smaller bed) and use the GCODE on my Prusa, and it it re-produce both x and y skipping, at the same height!, with the simular stepper noise. However if I print an old (save octaprint) GCODE the print is fine. I looks like Cura override some GCODE setting, or generate 'fast' movement code, but it has to do with speed.  but unfortunately I am not a boffen on this subject. Have any one else seen this phenomena ?

    I can confirm, I downloaded 3.4.1 and redid the print, the GCODE was substantially smaller and the print was 1.5 hours instead of the 2.5 hours, and the printer printed fine, no noises etc. One can see from the GCODE the one is 2.2MB versus 6.6Mbyte

    I experience a similar problem with 3.6 (and 4.0 beta). It seems that the z-axis does nor move so that the noozle after some time ploughs through the material until it stucks. Same stl file works fine with 3.4 I do print on an Anet A8. I tried to examine the gcode but the z-movements seem to  be the same (+,2 mm for each layer) than in the 3.4 file.

      • 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
