Travel movements being printed

Posted · Travel movements being printed

Hi All,

 

I have the following problem: Material is being printed during certain travel movements. First I suspected it was due to "stringing" with improper retraction settings. But after closer inspection with the layer preview within Cura, I found that "dark blue" printer head movements got printed with material whereas the "light blue" printer head movements were not. You can refer to the attached screenshot to illustrate what I mean exactly. The lines with red arrows got printed (=BAD) and lines with green arrows not (=GOOD).

Surely, this is unwanted behavior as material is printed in places I don't want it to. Or am I overlooking a setting in particular to correct for this?

 

I'm stuck here and can use some help out there. I use latest version of Cura v4.5.0 .

 

Thanks in advance,

Geert

      • 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
