Cura disables extruder heating during print


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura disables extruder heating during print

I have a problem. Cura 3.6 disables extruder heating on almost every dual-extrusion model few layers before end. I have tested it on 4 models and it disables heating on 3 of them.

One model has 260 layers and Cura disabled heating on layer 220 without any reason. All of the printing temperature settings are set to 200 in Cura

    There is a reason: Cura disables the heater for any tool that is not longer used for the print. I guess the remaining 40 layers are printed with T1, and T0 is not longer used. That's why Cura disables the heater for T0.


    This is regularly a problem for printers with multi extrusion, but single nozzle and can perhaps be changed with a postprocessing script, but i don't know if such a thing already exists.


    I really think this should be properly handled by the firmware of those printers. If it doesn't - it's a firmware bug, not the slicers fault (IMHO)

      • 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
