Problem additional part after slicing.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem additional part after slicing.

Goodmorning everyone...

Only lately I am having the problem illustrated below:

I noticed low quality prints, and in the beginning I blamed the cause at high speeds, humidity in the filament etc.

Then with a closer look at the GCODE I realized that Cura provides "slices" of extra material extruded outside the volume of the model (the meatballs outside the core).

As can be seen from the attached photos. Obviously, it should be noted that with other software I have not had any problems.

So I think it's my mistake with some settings or a software bug.

Can anyone show me a solution?

Thank you very much for your attention.

    Very strange.  At first I wanted to blame your model but I see no "shadow" outside the screw.  Is this viewing software Cura?  (it looks like it).


    Please reproduce the problem and then do "file" "save...".  This will create a file that has your machine settings, your slicing settings, your model, and the position/scale of your model.  Basically everything stored into one file.  Then post it here so we can look at it.


    Another idea: did you enable "draft shield" in cura?  Another idea: set line width to 0.1mm (all 10 or so line widths) temporarily to see if it shows more structure to this outer cylinder like thing.

      • 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
