Posted · New to Cura: Help with Delta Kossel Mini settings

Hi!

I spent 3 months getting a Delta Kossel Mini running. My first ever printer. I am running the latest Delta Marlins. Had the most trouble with Repetier Host/Slicer. I was to9ld to try Cura, And I got mostly successful prints! Thanks

As a newbee, I really don't understand the settings. I have a 1.75mm J-head, running PLA @ 200c I think .4mm nozzle.

Can someone inform me on conservative best settings to use in Cura?

Also when printing single wall vases, I read about Cura's Joris printing. Where can I find that option? I'd like to try printing some small vases as tests.

Thank you

Dave

    Well, not to say RTFM, but, well, have you read the manual? It's fairly new, and quite good:

    https://www.ultimaker.com/pages/support/manuals

    The Joris setting is found in Expert -> 'Open Expert Settings' - it is the 'Spiralize the outer contour' setting. That will cause the object to be printed with a bottom, no top, a single outer wall, and the edge gradually climbing upwards on each move, rather than printing a layer at a time and then jumping up one layer.

    I've no idea what sort of speeds your printer is capable of; the main settings to worry about are the layer height - probably something in the 0.1 to 0.2 mm range; the temperature - whatever is appropriate for your filament - probably 200-230 for PLA; and the speed - no idea on that 30mm/s should be ok for most any printer I think. You can probably go quite a bit faster, but generally, the faster you print, the thinner the layers need to be, so that the total volume of plastic per second doesn't get too high.

    Dear new-bee + expert,

    I have an Ultimaker original and want to build a Kossel Mini. I want to use Cura on the Kossel. I do not know if I need to use a particular board in the Kossel to do this.

    Which electronic board have you used?

    Thanks

    Gunther

    Normally, Kossel Minis are run on Arduino MEGA 2560 + RAMPS 1.4 Shield. You can ALWAYS use Cura as a slicer but if you intend to run the printer headless(directly connected to your computer, relaying gcode via usb), you can use Cura.

    However, I recommend that you just slice using Cura and relay via PRONTERFACE since Cura really doesn't like to recognise the printer.
