BUG? Cura Post Processing Plugin Errors


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · BUG? Cura Post Processing Plugin Errors

I have an Ender 3 Pro and I have been experiencing trouble with multi color prints.

I've tried:


Pause at height: (retraction doesn't work in this case, is there a retraction limit? 30 works, but 300 doesn't)


Pause Layer: 10
Park Print Head X: 0
Park Print Head Y: 0
Retraction: 300
Retraction: Speed 50
Extrude amount: 50
Extrude Speed 3.3333    
Redo Layers: 0
Standby Temp: 0


Filament Change: (if you select layer 11 it will stop at layer 10 to change filament, just WHY? It also pushes filament OUT just before the initial retraction and creates a mess on the print)


Layer: 11 (I want to enter 10  because I wanted a change at 10)
Initial retraction: 30
Later Retraction Distance: 300
X Position: 0
Y Position: 0


One would think somebody else noticed these problems before me?


What am I doing wrong? I can't wrap my head around it.



I just tested new settings that print great, but I still have to retract the filament out by hand since the retraction doesn't work to 300.


Pause at height: 


Pause Layer: 10
Park Print Head X: 0
Park Print Head Y: 0
Retraction: 30
Retraction: Speed 50
Extrude amount: 100
Extrude Speed 3.3333    
Redo Layers: 0
Standby Temp: 0

      • 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
