Ringing/Layer Shifts when printing faces with holes and Cura changing speeds on different layers

Posted · Ringing/Layer Shifts when printing faces with holes and Cura changing speeds on different layers

Hi, I've setup my Ender 3 and I'm not having any big troubles with ringing, except when I print anything that has holes. Besides the "normal" ringing right next to the hole, I'm getting something that looks like a layer shift, but only on those layers, that have the hole within them. These shifts continue until the edge of the part and are equally strong, no matter how distant the edge is. That leads me to think, that it is some kind of software issue with Cura. It also doesn't seem to have any effect if I change the print speed from 50mm/s to something like 30mm/s. In the first picture those "layer shifts" are very visible. Is there anything I could improve to get better results?


I also noticed, that Cura uses different speeds for different layers, depending on the model (see second picture). Is there a setting in Cura that I'm overseeing? In the model in the attached picture I set all the speeds to 50mm/s except for the first layer but only the top layers are printed at those speeds. Also infill on the lower layers seems to be printed at lower speeds (the same as the walls in that layer).


I don't really know why that is like that and I'm pretty sure older Cura versions didn't do that (I'm currently using 4.8), but I'm not 100% sure, because I didn't check the speeds really that often.


Maybe any of guys can tell me what's up.


Cheers, Asder

      • 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
