Every version of Cura since they removed the filament size in the side bar if I set up a custom printer I get massive underextrusion. It acts like I'm running 2.85mm filament no matter what I set it too. Works great if I grab a premade printer file with 1.75 filament, but my printer is duel extruders with a odd bed size. Will they ever fix this or put the ability to force the size to something back in the side bar?

    Did you set the filament size correctly both in the printer settings and in the materials manager? (Sidebar->Materials->manage materials)

    Sure did, even generated a custom filament with the correct specs and it still won't print correctly. The line on the first layer lay down so thin they won't even touch each other. Switch to a cr10 profile and it works like it should. Something about the custom printer profile just doesn't work. I've tried 3.5, 3.51, 3.6 and the betas and usually end up uninstalling them and going back to 3.4.1 since I can force a different diamiter in the side bar.

    Very weird. The printer settings plugin is worth a try I think.

    I have a dual extrusion CR-10, just made a profile from scratch when 3.6 came out and haven't had issues.

     

    Not sure how I solved it.  I just have printer/extruder settings (both) at 1.75, as well as the materials.

      • 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
