Printing Threads Post Cura 4.5 Install


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing Threads Post Cura 4.5 Install

I have been printing threads quite merrily prior to installing Cura 4.5.  In the picture below, you can see such a print on the right.  It is strong and seems like it is completely connected to the cylinder to which it is attached.   After installing Cura 4.5, my threads print only just barely in touch with the cylinder and the threads can easily be detached from it (as on the left in the figure below).  I'm not sure what to do differently.


When print such threads, I have "Support Overhang Angle" at 80 degrees.



Can you help cure my ignorance?

    Thanks for the file. Looking at the gcode you can see that the model is not totally solid. There's an inner ring and the threads are not connected to it. Here's a slice through the gcode that shows what I mean...




    I would have expected to only see walls on the inside and outside of the part with infill between the walls. It looks like a modelling problem to me.

      • 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
