Filament diameter settings


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Filament diameter settings

Using Cura 4.7  Having frist layer issues with a new MP10 printer.  It was suggested that my filament settings in Cura aren't right.  So true.  Generic PLA is set with a diameter of 2.85mm and I can't change it.  Can anyone give me some help changing this to 1.75mm.


Another issue, in the printhead initial settings, the x and y min settings are negative numbers.  I need positive numbers.  When I try to change them, nothing gets typed until I put the - back in.  How does this affect printing and can they be changed?  Might have to revert back to a more stable version of Cura since 4.7 isn't working as well as the earlier 4.x versions.

        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.
