Problems with last layer of towers


Recommended Posts

Posted · Problems with last layer of towers

Hey guys,


I am new to this community and I got a problem with my Ender 5pro using Cura 4.4.0


So i had problems with warping and delamination of brims from my glas print bed. I fixed those, works realy good right now, actually having trouble to remove some prints from the bed sometimes. But since i fixed that problem, i printed some test and saw some things i didnt like.


It looks like my priter prints an additional outer wall layer at the top of small towers. Its like when my tower has 3 lines it its outer wall, the top layer of the top is printed with 4 lines, hence 1 horinzontal wall line hangs in the air and drops sligly down while cooling, making the top of my tower slightly wider than the rest of the tower.


Next to those tower are some bridges in the test file, where the support tower of those bridges is identical with the towers i just talked about, an this phenomen does not accour at the top of those bridge towers and it does not occiur at the top of the bridge itsself. it only occours at the top of those towers. And it kind of looks like its geeting worse in one direction (+x direction), so the towers in the back look almost fine ( if you look closly you can also see a slighte wider top) but the front towers look the worst.


Does anybody has a ideo where this might come from

I attached a picture of the towers.


Many thanks in advance


Best regards

      • 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
