Cura Slicing Error

Hi Daid, I have been trying to slice this part, but Cura doesn't support the overhang properly in this instance.

Also the brim is starting from the projected edge of the part.

Do you need to see the file or do you already know what is causing this?

Or is it something I have done?

Thanks

Simon

    Hi,

    I remembered seeing something alike, do not know wich cura version Simon is using?.

    I see a part of a 2 in the screenshots, so I guess a newer version.

    Reading, Daid wants to see images and examples...

    This is what I found, printing a 1:160 model train. Notice the brim in the front part.

    this is what Simon wants to see, and you might suspect..

    Yes, I'm aware of the problem (combination of support and brim giving issues like this). I have not looked into the cause yet.

    Yep, latest version of cura. Interesting that 13.10 does it correctly. Can I use 13.10 with the latest firmware. Are there any health warning with 13.10. And lastly can I use both versions side by side on the same computer (PC)?

    I don't see any Health issues :) , give it a try and see what happens.

    Í have 5 versions installed at the moment, you might want to walk through the settings if you import settings from a gcode sliced in another version. And you miss some updates, but hard to tell what and which.

    Side-by-side installs are supported on Cura (with Windows&Linux, on Mac it can give weird issues) It was actually a design choice to support this I made very early on. I do not want to force people to only use the latest version. Which is why also all the old versions are available for download.

    You won't have the brim issue with 13.10 because 13.10 does not account for the support material with the brim.

      • 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.
