Cura 4.10 extrusion speed / overextrusion


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.10 extrusion speed / overextrusion

The file sliced with 4.8 is in Relative Extrusion mode.  Viewing the individual lines of extrusion, they indeed reflect Relative mode.


The file sliced with 4.10 SAYS it is in Relative Extrusion mode but viewing the lines of code in that file that have extrusions, it is in Absolute mode.  That is a conflict and will "absolutely" make a mess.


I think what happened is the "M83" in your Start-Up G-Code places the printer into Relative Extrusion mode but within Cura you are in Absolute Extrusion mode and so all the extrusions get misinterpreted by the printer.


The fix is to either set Cura Special Modes | Relative Extrusion to "checked", or delete the M83 line from your startup gcode and let Cura handle the setting.  My choice would be to get rid of the "M83" in the startup gcode.


To fix that existing 4.10 file just delete the M83 line near the beginning of the file.

    • 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
