Help! Cura Software creates diagonal print before making skirt


Recommended Posts

Posted · Help! Cura Software creates diagonal print before making skirt

Hello Everyone,

I am newbie in this 3D Printing world, but i always try to search it before ask it. So, it's either my english is bad or no one have experiences it before. 

I use prusa slicer before this (and it didn't have this error), but i felt like the not much configuration in the print setting. Therefore, I change to CURA, it is awesome, i can control many things with the setting. However, when i slice it using CURA, my printer always print a diagonal line from middle to front (the side closer to you) left. I tried to find something in the setting, including in skirt, nothing changes it. 

So with CURA it prints by this sequence:
1. from front left to middle left,

2. from middle left to centre of bed (this is it),

3. from centre of the bed to front left (this is it)

4. start printing the skirt (stepping through the diagonal line).

By Prusa it prints by this sequence:
1. from middle left to front left
2. start printing the skirt. 

I wonder if anyone have experiences this or have solution to fix this error of mine. 

Any suggestion is appreciated. 


Thank you all!

      • 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
