ultimaker cura 4.6 starts from the end of the 3D project

Posted · ultimaker cura 4.6 starts from the end of the 3D project

hi all! 


i'm new in the 3D printing world, i've recently bought a creality ender 3 and before i had an anet a8 v2... when i first used cura to slice my OBJ or STL files for my anet A8 everything was fine, when i loaded the STL on cura with everything set up for the ender 3 and tried to print the file, my printer "started from the end" of the 3D oject, in other words, it literally started to print the last layer instead of making the base where the object would have been later printed on... how can i fix this? the creality ender 3 comes with the "creality slicer powerred by cura" but honestly it doesn't have much options, and the first layer of my printed object that i slice with the creality slicer looks like garbage while the top one looks perfect... wish i could use cura official software... can anyone help me fix this weird "start to print at the end of the item" issue? 


thanks so so much!

      • 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
