Not printing correctly after last firware update

Posted · Not printing correctly after last firware update

So just caught up on a bunch of firmware updates. I went all the way to the lastest one. Now when I print it tries to print a good 25mm or so above the bed for some reason. Any ideas? If it matters I am using hardcore nozzles, tried cura 3.6 and 4.0, and it was working perfectly fine before the firmware update. It must know where it is though because the prime goes to the correct spot.

    The reason for it is a command in the gcode G92 Z, this is causing the problem. Normally G92 Z comes from the Z-height plugin, but there are also users without that plugin. You can try to install a fresh copy of Cura 4 and delete the configuration folder before.

    I am using the z height plugin. So after this will I not be able to use it? Or do I need to do a fresh install and then install it? Without it I cant use the hardcore nozzles as it prints too close to the bed and jams.

    By deleting the config does that get rid of all my other printers again? I normally wouldn't care, but I just got done entering them all again 2 weeks ago.

    I'm probably too late now, but if you delete the config folder, all your settings will be gone. You might want to copy it away first, then you have the chance to copy back the configs step by step.


    But if you're using the z-height plugin, it's probably enough to just disable this plugin. The reinstallation was helpful for users who had the problem but didn't use the z-height plugin.


    Where the problem is with G92 Z is still unclear, so the plugin is not usable for now. But I'm sure the problem/bug will be analyzed and hopefully fixed with the next Cura update.

    I had the same issue: used the Z-as plugin for finetuning bedleveling, worked great !

    But after this new firmware upgrade, the printer is printing in the AIR (about 3cm too high!!).

    Now disabled the plugin, it prints now on the glass again 😉


    BUT: it's a BUG, I hope they will fix it asap !!

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • 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 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.
