Cura 4.11.0 - Not printing thin one layer prints.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.11.0 - Not printing thin one layer prints.

In order to test my bed level correctness, I typically print some one layer test squares at 0.2mm or 0.24mm thickness. However Cura 4.11.0 seems to not generate a gcode for one layer prints less than 0.3mm thickness. I had no problems doing this in Cura 4.5.0 (last Cura version I used). Is there a setting that I am unaware of in Cura 4.11.0 that needs to be changed to allow slicing below 0.3mm thickness for one layer prints?

    This is a bug in the 4.11 software and has been noted on Github.

    If you change either the material thickness so it's thick enough to slice but not exactly equal to your Initial Layer Height it will slice.

    So if you have a model that is .200 thick then you can scale the model in just the Z to .201, or change the Initial Layer Height to .199.  Either one should work until this is fixed in the next Cura version.

      • 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
