Cura creating bad/missing layer

Posted · Cura creating bad/missing layer

I am fairly new to cura and 3d printing so I apologize if the problem is obvious. 

 

I have an stl file that when I slice it I get a layer in the middle (somewhere about 60 layers in) that is very thin, maybe empty but the model shows it solid.  I can see this bad layer in preview with cura.  My layer height is .3 but if I change the layer height to .301, the bad layer seems to clear up.

 

It looks like simply changing the first layer height to 0.301 will also fix it based on cur preview.

 

I have attached a zip file with the model stl, the gcode, exported config and photos of the bad print and a good one( still printing on the printer).

 

 

Thanks

    In reading some other posts on the forum someone said to save the project so all settings would be saved.  So I attached the project file showing the problem.  After slicing, open select preview and there will be a line around the perimeter.  Simply changing layer height or initial layer height for .30 to .301 or .299.  It does not seem that any other value other that .3 causes this problem.

     

    Why is .3 such a problem?

      • 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
