Under extrusion...

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
