White indicators showing in print preview

Posted (edited) · White indicators showing in print preview

Question I have regarding print preview...What are the white indicators that are showing up on this print preview, will it affect my print,  and is there a way to get rid off them?

I thought they might be seams but seems strange to have they in random places.

    They are seams. Or actually they are starts and stops of extruded parts. One place where such starts/stops happen is at the Z seam (where one layer stops, the z is increased, and the next layer starts). But there are also places where the extruder stops extruding, moves somewhere else within the layer, and then starts again. This can also leave a seam. Without a look at your model, it is hard to tell why Cura is doing this in this case.

      • 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
