Rounded corner in a shell part


Recommended Posts

Posted · Rounded corner in a shell part


I would like to get the perfect settings for this shell part and I cannot find a solution.

I installed Cura 4.9.1 from 4.8.0 and saw no improvement.

I see an improvement with KISSlicer64 v1.6.3 - this is a standalone software with only 2.6Mb .


Should I attach also the stl Part?


Cura, 0.3mm Layer 124

* position 1 and 2: the seam should run continuously.



Cura, 0.3mm Layer 680

* the green thick lines pointed by blue arrows are actually double lines. The strange thing is the empty space on the corner.



The KISSlicer64 make it perfect on the corners, but has another places where it has minuses.



Cura, 0.4mm Layer 43

* almost perfect (the interior green line on the corner should have also a radius)




* on corners is perfect



Cura, 0.6mm Layer 143

* the rounded corners are perfect, but the blue marked corner has a small yellow extra line - I suppose this is not needed - that area could be simply be filled by running the yellow lines straight - but there Cura makes round yellow lines.



KISSlicer64 make it perfect - other places are problematic (marked by blue arrow):




Also for Cura 0.6mm on layer 20 and 21 I see short lines - these are not needed:

Layer 21 detail

Kind regard,

      • 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
