Cura 5.9


aliultimaker

Recommended Posts

I upgraded from 5.8 to 5.9, but 5.9 does not prime print core 1 before starting to print, hence prints fail as material is not extruding properly at the start of the print.

I reverted back to V5.8 and the print core 1 prime works Ok and print is a success.

Is anyone else experiencing the same issue with V5.9.

 

Note if you let the print proceed the first part associated with print core 1 is missing but the material will start to extrude part way through and hence is OK until the next pass over the initial missing print portion and from there on the print is a mess.

    You mean Cura 4.9?

     

    I just upgraded to Cura 4.9 from 4.8 too. I am having a similar problem. But on the 2nd extruder of my Ultimaker 3.

     

    No matter what I do, enabled Prime Blob or not... toggle the checkbox, power cycle, etc. etc. The 2nd extruder's Prime Blob was never generated with 4.9. It always went directly to the first adhesion layer of the 2nd extruder without the blob. The 1st extruder's prime blob worked for me though.

     

    I use breakaway on the 2nd extruder extensively -- pretty much every print except trivial prints. This caused the first few layers to be dry and incomplete thus rendering the whole support useless, thus pretty much all my prints failed. I had to revert back to 4.8.

    I think few other people have the luxury of a timemachine. I don't think Cura 5.9 will be available before the end of 2023.

    Cura 4.9 has indeed a bug that affects all S-line printers (and probably also the Ultimaker 3) in the way described above. Ultimaker is working on it. In the meantime, it is recommended to use Cura 4.8 for the affected printers (for dual prints).

    It is being addressed, but wouldn’t you rather have a tested solution than a quick one?

    I suppose your question addresses V4.9.0 too?😏

      • 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
