Posted · adding prime blob to .ufp file

Hello everybody. 

 

im having trouble printing a model that has always printed sucessfilly previously, but im using a new material and the for some reason its missing some of the lettering at the very beginning. My suspission is that its not primed properly.

 

is there a way to as a prime blob to the .ufp file to ensure it is primed?

 

recreating the program in cura is not an option as it took me a long time to get the settings right and i lost the cura file.

 

any help is apreciated.

    A .ufp file is "just a zip". You can open it in a zip program (eg 7zip), extract the actual gcode file to edit it, and put the edited file back in the .ufp file.

    Thanks so much, i had no idea it was a zip file!

     

    i opened with 7zip and compared the gcode....

    is anybody able to say which lines of code it is that i should be adding?

    G280 is responsible for the initial material feeding. The additional parameter S1 prevents the "blob".

    It should be sufficient to substitute lines 31 - 32

     

    for reference:

      • 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
