I tried to print baby yoda model on Thingiverse (by MarVin Miniatures) and failed 2 times I used tree supports 0.12mm layer height 60mm/s speed and when it reached the head of yoda it started moving the x and y randomly and retracting the filament lastly lowered the extruder and melted the parts that it has printed. I thought that gcode is broken and resliced and it happened again at the very beginning. 

 

I am using cura 4.5 now.

 

here is the gcode of last ruined print

    I can't interprete gcode and can't verify it. But in Cura's layer-view you can see which traject the nozzle is going to follow. If Cura is at error, then you should see those erratic movements in the preview to. Before saving any gcode, you should always inspect the preview. Does it show those problems too?

     

    I rather think that, depending on your machine and file-transfer method, the memory card is defect, or the file is corrupted, or the card's connector is dirty, or the USB-stick is defect or corrupt, or the communication gets interrupted or corrupted if via network or USB-cable, or the computer is too busy doing other things, etc. Something along that line of thinking...

    But it is making those movement consciously I checked the travel movements and saw this it is the slicers fault.I have this fault on Cura preview too

    Hi DarRAven,

     

    Cura do not want show this model due to some references moving the extruder far outside the printer area, this go down and up and start approx where your print fails.  In S3D this can be observed.

     

    Try to make a new download of the model again, try open the gcode file in Cura and if it open it is Ok.

    If not do not try printing it. -Are you using Cura for slicing??

     

    Thanks

    So, what version of Cura did you use?

    Is this gcode file the one on the SD card, -or is it from a "saved file" on the PC?

     

    Have never seen Cura doing such an erratic movement outside the printing "box".

    So if this is a copy from the SD card as @geert_2 assumed, this is probably your problem. This SD card/card adapter have had some issues.. 

     

    Thanks

    Yep - the file is damaged somehow. It contains non-ASCII characters - blame the SD card! 🧐

    If you would have compressed air, also blow out the SD-card slots in the computer and printer. Often hairs or dirt get in there, causing bad contacts and thereby similar problems, resulting in corrupt files.

      • 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!
          • Thanks

      • 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.
