Absolute Extrusion problem


Recommended Posts

Posted · Absolute Extrusion problem


I've got a problem with absolute extrusion - in older versions of cura it used to be metric (i.e. gcode says filament used 2.78m and the last movement is E2780), but since updating it seems to have changed something and is causing underextrusion or something, as the lines have huge gaps between them. Now the gcode file says(not the same model) 8.69m of filament used, but the last line is E380, which I think is the problem.

Cura version is 4.3, but the change happened in 3.x, I think it was fine in 3.5.

Is there a setting somewhere that changes the values somehow? I can't seem to find anything.

    Looked into the gcode again and if I summed it up, it added up to the filament used, but I exported and imported all settings(printer, printing) and everything fixed itself.

      • 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
