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.
