    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.

    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

      • 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
