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!
