"Ghost prints" Cura 13.12

Posted · "Ghost prints" Cura 13.12

Hello all. Just installed the latest version of Cura and got it set to the same settings as the last version of Cura.

First couple of prints went all right.

Now, something bizarre is happening.

I print something, doesn't matter what it is, and after a few layers, it will print another copy of the same thing on top of the first copy, but slightly off to the side.

What the heck?

Any help would be great, reverting back to 13.11.2 for now ^.^

    Sounds like your pulleys are slipping.

    I assume it is slipping only on the X or Y axis? Does that make sense? If not please post a picture because in that case I have no idea what you are talking about.

    So figure out which axis it is and then tighten all 6 pulleys for that axis. There are 6 (six!) pulleys. The two most likely to be slipping are the two that are hardest to get to: the short belts ones: the one on the motor and the one above.

    Tighten the heck out of those grub screws (aka set screws) and try again.

    Also consider maybe marking the pulley and shaft with a tiny dot to see which one is slipping.

      • 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
