    You showed the "prepare" view.  Please show the "preview" view after slicing that part.


    I suspect the problem is more with the printer than cura but I need to see "preview" mode to be sure.

    Thank you this is the preview


    printer is a geetech pro i3; a prusa clone


    the extruder goes straight ahead at the  place of the "spikes"1321943099_Sanstitre.thumb.png.8e1f443d17eb699eac9c197845262cde.png

    So you can see clearly in the preview that Cura is printing those bumps.  Something is off on your printer.  I'm guessing that your first layer isn't sticking very well.


    It would be helpful to show the first layer of your print complete (and failing).


    Here is a video that explains well how to get the first layer to stick - VERY VERY WELL:

    No, because at the first layer the printer does a straight line instead of moving and print the bump. If the first layer isn't ok, the extractor will does the movement to make the form of the bump, but it does a straight line a the postion of the bump. 


    the anorther  outlines of the piece are good and with good sizes 


    thank you

    Ok thank you, i've understand something, 


    I don't know why but i think that the end stop of the plate have moved. I've turned the piece with 90° angle, and the piece is good.


    After test I discovered that the end stop have moved, so printer's plate stop and don't print the bump


    thank you for your help

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
