Ultimaker Cura 4.6.1


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Cura 4.6.1

Hi, I'm trying to slice an object on my 0.2mm nozzle for a custom 3D printer (Artillery Genius).
0.4mm nozzle and 1mm nozzle work fine but everytime I try to set up 0.2mm (or 0.25 or 0.3mm) it resets it back to 0.4mm after any change. If I try to slice it, It gets back to 0.4mm and slices at 0.4mm.

Anyone has the same issue ? I'm switching to slic3r for testing purposes but I do like very much Cura Uu

Thank you very much!
Best regards,

Thomas D

    In Cura, nozzle size isn't important.  Ignore it.  Instead set the parameters called "line width".  There are several of them.  By default they are sort of controlled by nozzle size.  But nozzle size doesn't matter - "line width" matters.  Set the line widths (all of them) to match your actual nozzle size.  You can go a bit smaller - 10% smaller is fine (.36 line width for a .4 nozzle).

    Oooh. Okay, good to know ! ^^
    So if I set line with at .15 for my .2 nozzle and .8 for my 1mm even though the printer is set up for .4mm nozzle it should work ? Thank you very 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
