Nozzle parking on model at end of print before moving off


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Nozzle parking on model at end of print before moving off



I have an issue I've noticed with my printer (Ultimaker S3, FW version 7.0.0), that at the end of some prints (I haven't paid attention enough to know if it's every print or just prints that have a small final layer, such as a pyramid or a sphere) the nozzle will park at the final print location for a small handful of seconds before moving off the print and end the session.  I found a similar post about a similar phenomenon (see link below).  My problem is nearly identical to what was mentioned in there, only without the additional extrusion.  I just end up with a funny melted splotch at that last location due to the hot nozzle sitting there.


Is there a setting I can tweak that I'm unaware of in Cura or a bug someone else has mentioned that I couldn't find, or a bug no one's paid enough attention to yet?


This has been occurring since Cura 4.8, (so 4.9, 4.10 and now 4.11.0), and all the Ultimaker S3 firmware versions (don't remember the version number I started with early 2021) up until the current version, 7.0.0.


Thanks for your help!

        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.
