Posted · Cannot get infill to print after doing Vase, surface, spiralize prints

I printed some vase type things a few weeks ago for the first time and now cura 3.6 seems to ignore that I have turned off smooth spiralized contours and surface mode to normal or both.  when I import a design it shows up with no top or infill unless I set the infill to 100% then it looks solid.  thanks for any adice you can provide!

    there should be a profile drop down where you can choose for example "Draft 0.2".  There should be a star there.  Click that start.  This shows you all the deviations from the standard profile.  Look for settings and values in italics in the lower right corner of that dialog.  Make sure you click both the "global settings" tab at the top of that table and the "extruder" tab(s).  Look carefully at all the settings you have changed that are different from the standard settings.  All the ones that are italic in the current column are modified.

    yep that's what it was!  thank you!  I was surprised I couldn't use a profile that had spiralize and then turn that off for the model I'm working on.  Now I know!

      • 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
