Hi wonderful people,

 

I just bought the Creality Ender 5 Pro (got a good deal) for my first ever 3d printer. I've managed to print out some ready made gcode to verify the hardware is all good, I've got clean prints. Now I found Thingiverse and trying to print this simple Pepe frog model, https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:735928

 

I load it into Cura 4.11.0, I got a basic PLA profile, I slice, and this is what I get in the preview (attached image). So it prints the brim and the eyes, but all the greyed out lines in the preview do not print. I have loaded up other models too, many of them do the same, just greyed out after slicing. What is going on? This is probably something simple, as I am totally new, but I been googling for hours about Cura greyed out this and that and haven't found a solution. Feels bad man. Please someone throw me a bone..

    The walls of the object are too thin. By default the "Print thin walls" setting is disabled. Enable that to get that to work.

     

    Aye up, thank you for this I will try that in about an hour, printing a BLtouch bracket atm...

    Slices perfectly with print thin walls ticked  and surface mode = surface

     

    Hi, same issue here, Bed Level Test by xx77Chris77xx - Thingiverse

    It's a simple bed leveling test. It will stay greyed out after slice, and will print nothing. This is with both "thin walls" and "surface mode" checked. So there must be yet another setting somewhere that prevents this?

    @KaluNaama - This has come up a few times now and I believe there is a bug report on GitHub.

     

    You can scale the Z and make the model .201 tall (make sure it is still sitting on the build plate) or you can change your Initial Layer Height to .199.

    Thanks dude, I didn't realize the model was flatter than the initial line setting 😄 Learned a lot today. Been up 19 hours straight constantly 3D printing and testing and learning...

    Trust me when I tell you, you ain't gonna learn it in a day, or a month, or a year.  Go to bed, you might wake up to a plate of spaghetti but you'll learn from that plate of spaghetti.

    It used to work for 4.10. We changed some tolerance settings and missed that it wouldn't print something if it was lower than the initial layer height. So that's our bad.

      • 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
