Z-axis does not lift after first layer/ Z-Achse hebt sich nach erster Schicht nicht mehr

Posted · Z-axis does not lift after first layer/ Z-Achse hebt sich nach erster Schicht nicht mehr




i've got a problem with my cura.

I have designed 2 parts in Autodesks Inventor. One is a simple cylinder, the other one a more complex part. When slicing it with cura, everything seems good in the software but when it comes to printing, the printer prints the first layer perfect but then does not lift the z-axis for the second layer. This happens at both of the designed parts. However x and y axis as well as the extruder are working fine. If I slice something from thingiverse it is working just fine. It has nothing to do with the material or the printer as I tried several ones. I also sliced the cylinder in slic3r and it works fine but I really prefer cura, especially for big/expansive parts. That's why I hope someone here can help me with this issue.

Greetings, Vincent 




Ich habe ein Problem mit meinem Cura.

Ich habe zwei Teile in Autodesks Inventor designed. Einem simplen Zylinder und ein etwas größeres, aufwendigeres Teil.

Wenn ich beide separat mit cura slice haut alles super hin. Kommt es aber ans drucken beginnen die Probleme.

Die erste Layer wird super gedruckt, danach hebt sich aber die Z Achse nicht, alle anderen Achsen und Extruder bewegen sich aber weiter, das passiert bei beiden Teilen. Slice und drucke ich aber was von thingiverse haut alles hin. Es liegt weder am Material noch am Drucker, habe jeweils verschiedene probiert. Dann habe ich den Zylinder mit slic3r gesliced und gedruckt und alles haut hin. Da ich aber vorallem für aufwendige/teure Teile cura sehr bevorzuge, hoffe ich jemand hier kann mir mit meinem Problem helfen.

Grüße, Vincent

    Hallo Vincent,


    Kannst du mal dein Curaprojekt (Datei -> Speichern) teilen.

    So würde es am einfachsten und am schnellsten gehen dein Problem zu sehen.


    Gruß Gerd

    Gerd, vielen Dank für Ihre Hilfe.

    Ich hatte herausgefunden, dass es an den Dateinamen lag. Im Dateinamen waren ä,ö,ü vorhanden was die Dstei scheinbar korrumpierte.


    Vielleicht können Sie mir ja bei meinem derzeitigen Problem helfen, wo zu ich soeben eine neue Topic erstellt habe. 


    Danke nochmals!

    Hi! This happened to me with some model, using the ender3 (I think it doesn't depend on the printer though).

    I tried another slicer and worked perfectly, using prusaslicer for this printer worked nicely. Cura gave some issues.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
