Stringing Issue

Hello all,

 

I am having an issue with Cura adding what seems to be strings.  The orange lines in the picture below print and are a pain to remove from print.  They seem to not serve any function other than to increase clean up time.  I have added the printer settings I have on the lower right of the picture.  I am using a .8mm head with Amazon PLA Filament. Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

    Could be a lot and it is hard to say just from a screenshot, but here some points:

    • print cooler, cool as possible
    • use another filament, cheap filament is often not the best solution
    • play with the retract settings
    • increase travel speed
    • check the combing section, are the travel paths retracted or not

    I guess the main problem is the 0.8 nozzle in combination with a material which oozes too much. But maybe you get better results when you try to print cooler.

    I increased my travel speed to 120 we'll see how that works.

     

    One question is are the orange lines in the above picture Cura anticipating stringing or is it Cura adding stringing.  cause those orange lines are not part of the model.

    Here is a slice of a miniature which if i printed would be almost impossible to get clean:

    This issue started mostly with the last update of Cura which i believe was 4.3?  I have printed mini's before and Cura has never added these orange lines to the model.

    Your line colours are completely different from the defaults, so the orange lines are normally blue and these are the travel paths.

     

    Latest stable Cura is 4.7, but the line colours were always the same.

    120 is the default travel speed for your printer.

      • 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
