Does Cura 4.6 have a bug?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Does Cura 4.6 have a bug?

Just acquired a Monoprice MP10. Along with it in the micro sd was a copy of Cura 3.3 which, as far as I know, is the only one which has a profile for my new printer and it works just fine.

Having already downloaded Cura 4.6 I decided to copy over the settings from 3.3 and create a profile for the MP10. Copied everything exactly and then using 4.6 sliced a copy of Benchy as a test. The picture shows what happened about half way through the print, a big step in the model. So I then tried the same STL file in 3.3 sliced it and set it off. A perfect print! 

Just to check I also printed the tavern from Talisman in 3.3 and it also was perfect. On slicing the tavern in 4.6 it failed as the picture shows in exactly the same place and way.

I have double checked all the settings that I copied over to 4.6 and there are no mistakes or omissions so I can only assume that somewhere in 4.6 there seems to be a glitch in the code. Has anyone else come across this or something like it?

    There are many settings in Cura that can not be made visible, but they can be specified in a printer definition. These include things like the maximum speeds and accelerations your printer can handle. The "Printer Settings" plugin makes these settings visible in Cura, but it is much better to push Monoprice to update their printer definitions and have them included in Ultimaker Cura.

      • 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
