Posted (edited) · need advice/help please

This is my first post so if i got thing in the wrong place the sorry in advance. I been using cura for about 2 years and wouldnt use anything else untill 2-3 month ago as all of a sudden after a cura update cura would slice perfect no problems shown but when it came to printing my model or litho it would start to move as if the print bed had been moved whilst printing leaving horizontal steps every 10mm or so move over to prusa slicer done the same print and no such problem. Yesterday needed to print a big 27hr litho and slicer just froze on me so reverted back to cura 4.6 and all was fine after 3 hrs so left it and went to bed woke up this morning and there they were 3 steps in the print about 5-6 mm apart like i said its like the print moves 2mm back and starts printing again. any help would be great as would need to use cura for these big 115million triangle prints as slicer cant handle it by the looks of it.


many thanks

      • 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.
