ender 3 pro and cura. first layer perfect, rest with gaps between lines.


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · ender 3 pro and cura. first layer perfect, rest with gaps between lines.


  I have inserted my cura settings, hope you can see it.

 I have two issues.

  1. My first layer is ok, but infill at 100% has gaps between lines, also those gaps are present at top layers two. I am printing spiral chess figures and they have multiple top surfaces and on both of them i see like 0.07 gaps inbetween infill lines like i need to set distance between lines or some overlap.
  2. i have some stringing and oozing blobs at the corners,  but in a strange way. somewhere near the seam, near the seam line i have stringing and blobs on 3 outter corners of the 5 spiralpeace. the other legs are ok, but those 3 have some issues. nothing i can't fix with a scalpel.

One other thing connected to this. I tried to print infinity cube and succeeded once but all the time at the start and the and of the walls i get some matterial oozing that accumulates over the time and it dislocates the print, or when i tried to print eiffel tower, it just strings too much.


I have no option of taking pictures. but i gett distance between walls and walls not connected to infill.


And oozing, when extrusion starts i get a little extra material , and on the stop.


Sorry i cant explain better with a photo.


Thanks for reading.


P.s.  i have upgraded mk8 aluminium extruder and callibrated e steps.

for the flow i dont have digital callipers but when i printed 20 by 20 by 20 mm cube it was correct dimensions.


i assume its the settings.


Edit: here are the two recent pictures. i printed both pawns at the same time.

      • 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
