Bad roofs


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm here to ask your help about my 3d prints' roofs, which don't look good. First of all, It has been while since I last printed and I used Simplify 3d, so I'm trying to learn Cura. I have a grinder which has a roof on the underneath part, basically everything around he graphic is craved into the base. So this roofs are actually important because they are part of the aestethic of the model, however i can't understand why they get printed this way. I tried different settings and thought that 'skin'  was the problem, mainly because it was a setting i never heard of, but still I have this problem.  I tried with bridge settings and  with supports, but the texture is not good looking. Is it somethingI can't do much about or can I fix it?In the images you can see what I'm talking about, where the first was interrupted after finishing the layer. I printed many times with 1 layer of skin, than I removed it but I can't tell if it fixed anything.


P.s the flow rate  is at 93%

      • 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
