Spongy prints with 4.5 but not with 3.6


Recommended Posts

Posted · Spongy prints with 4.5 but not with 3.6

I have been using Cura for about 1.5 years and version 3.6 works great.  I got tired having to close the little message about the newest version, so I installed 4.5.  All the prints with 4.5 come out spongy, soft on the sides.  So I made a .5 x .5 block, printed with 3.6, took 13 minutes, sliced it in 4.5 and it only took 10 minutes, this was after I had compared all the settings, that I have coming up.  I know there are many more settings, that I don't use or see. The speed, infill and wall count is set the same, what other settings could be at fault?  Is there a way to do a data dump of all the settings, where I could compare all the settings?  It has to be one that I don't have turned on.

    Pictures will not show any difference, it is in the strength of the print.  As far as the print, I measured them, the 3.6 version measured .50, the 4.5 version measured .49.  These were printed with PLA and within 30 minutes of each other.

        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.
