A big blob of person - so frustrated

Posted · A big blob of person - so frustrated


I'm getting so frustrated. I'm new so I have no idea what I did wrong?  The below picture is suppose to be a human form with supports, but instead it's a solid mass.  I adjusted something incorrectly but I cant figure it out at all.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thank you very much!

    With just a picture, we cannot help. So you have to give us more details or even better, upload the Cura project here.

    I guess that your model has not enough cooling. Print this slow, as cool as possible, and print a dummy model next to the real model. Try a dummy cube, or an inverse of the model. So that the hot nozzle has to spend some time away from the real model, and the real model gets time to cool. But as said, it is a guess.



    See this conceptual example:





    Edit: it looks like this effect with and without dummy cooling tower:

    I'm home now and I want to thank you all for the responses.  I've attached the project file.

      • 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
