Cura 4.4.1 + Octoprint -> Extrusion issue


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.4.1 + Octoprint -> Extrusion issue

Hi all

I am new in 3D printing world. Since two weeks I'm working successful with Ultimaker 2+. Now I installed Raspberry Pi with OctoPi

Here my configuration:

  • Ultimaker 2+ mit 0.4mm Extruder
  • Innofil3D Filament PLA, 2.85mm
  • Ultimaker Cura 4.4.1
  • Raspberry Pi 3 B
  • OctoPrint 1.3.12 on OctoPi 0.17.0


Issue with this solution: When I print with Octoprint the extruded filament is more thick than when I print directly with Ultimaker from the SD card. Do I need to adjust anything in Cura or Octoprint ?




Left extruded with Octoprint, right extruded from SD Card


Here my settings in Octoprint and Cura :





Does any one has an idea what I do wrong or what I have to adjust in the settings to get the same extrusion quality ?


Thanks a lot for any helps

    I have quite same issue for inconsistent layer flow with UM2 and Octoprint. After many tests, it seems to come from Cura slicing, bu did not find what happens.


    Did you solve your problems since then?

      • 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
