cura slice on an old reprap

Recommended Posts

Posted · cura slice on an old reprap

I have a 10 years old reprap with teacup firware and i print with repetier.

I decide to change my old skeinforge and use the cura.

If i print a rectangular everything is perfect. extremely good print in comparison to the one that i had be able to make the with Skeinforge.

But if I print a normal part that has gaps and square holes the printer retracts the material like crazy and actual it is not printing because  the retract of the filament is very big and i can not see a forward motion to compensate to the retract. I tried to read the g code and I can not find it the few E- that exist followed with the E+ as it suppose to but they do not explain the behavior I see.

Even if I change the settings and remove the retract so the g code has no "G1 E-" the behavior remains.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
