Need help! No extrusion only with Cura!


Recommended Posts

Posted · Need help! No extrusion only with Cura!



I have a Creality CR10s Pro v2 printer and I'm having an issue when printing with Cura. I set the printer profile in Cura (4.8.0) to Creality CR10S Pro. My problem is that when I start printing, the head moves to the left side of the bed, it makes a perfect thick line then starts to print, but it won't extrude any material after that.  I checked and the extruder gear (sorry I don't know what it's called) doesn't even move. The strange thing is that the gear only rotates "backwards" when it has to retract. I tried with the CR10S and CR10 profiles and older versions of Cura, but it does the same thing. If I try the same settings and the same STL file with Simplify 3D it prints perfectly. Is there any kind of fix? My printer's firmware is the latest.

    The initial purge line is hard-coded in the Start Gcode.  The rest of the file is calculated by Cura.

    0.1 initial layer height...I would make it equal to or just more than the regular layer height.  With such a thin first layer there might not be enough room for the filament to escape from the nozzle if you miss the leveling by only a little bit.

    Under Mesh Fixes change the Maximum resolution and Maximum travel resolution to 0.5.

    Under Experimental you have Use Adaptive Layers enabled.  Turn that off for the Benchy.  It's a special use thing.


    All I see in the Cura settings and the printer settings is that low initial layer height.  Sometimes Volumetric extrusion can get inadvertently turned on.  In the printer - make sure "Main | Control | Filament | E in mm3" is turned off.

      • 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
