Artillery Siderwinder X1

Recommended Posts

Posted · Artillery Siderwinder X1

I try to use CURA with the Artillery Siderwinder X1 for which I can't find a printer to pick in the software. Defining my own also does not work as expected. Here is what happens:

When every I print, the print stops, then the print head is lifting to the far right back and about 10cm up. After that it keeps printing there without filament coming out. The bed starts banging to the front edge limit over and over until the print is stopped manualy.

How can I fix the problem and keep using this otherwise great application on my MAC.

    I have the EXACT same problem with Cura using my Sidewinder X1.  If you go back to Cura 3.6 and download 




    (thats the link to the Cura 4 profile converted to Cura 3), it wont stop and move to the top right.  However Ive been having a problem with it stopping at 99% and not finishing.  Haven't tried working through it yet.  Join the FB group tho they are great.

    Thank you for the tip. I just downloaded the 4.9 version and on my MAC that also causes a problem with fusion 360. When I try to print, I tries to open CURA but then it crashes first. Once the app is open in my background and I try to start the printing again from Fusion 360, now it will post the object into CURA.

    All I want to find out, where in the software can I define to which port to connect. My CH340 USB port on my laptop is connected to COM5 and that same laptop connects perfectly to my Ender 3 Printer without any problems at all.

    Thank you again for the tip but I was hoping that I can tell an application how to connect to a printer.

    I believe Cura does automatic port polling to find which port is connected to "something".  The baud rate and other port settings are also automatic.  That means there is no manual control of a port.  The USB Printing function of Cura has not been maintained or updated because no Ultimaker printers use it.

    With the printer turned on and the USB cord connected to that same COM5 port then Cura should find the printer.  If you are trying to connect both the Ender and the Sidewinder at the same time - I don't know if that would work.  Cura might just find the first printer it comes to and say "good enough".  My Win10 laptop will configure any USB port I connect to the printer with the CH340 driver.  My Win7 desktop only connects if I use a specific USB port.

      • 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!
          • Thanks

      • 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.
