Cura Slice defects

Hi,

Models are fine and smooth in CAD but get errors when slice is run. Mostly 'vertical' errors which run up the length of the model. I'm confident the model is fine as error it's consistent with others and the error moves as i rotate the model, staying in the same place on the print bed.

 

All software is up to date, same issue with old and new versions. 

Any help will be much appreciated. 

 

thanks,

    Do you happen to have Coasting enabled?  Coasting moves don't have any extrusion and consequently show up as gaps in the preview.  You can see that on one side of each gap is the white Z seam so in the round features I'm guessing that the nozzle movement is clockwise.

    Hi Greg, thanks for the quick reply. turning off coasting has reduced the error and replaced it with just  a white section but no physical defect as far as i can tell. I'll print with these settings and update the thread with any differences.

    The white dots are to indicate where the start / stops of an extrusion are.

    @Kev_Pe - I don't see any issues.  Are you talking about the white spots/lines?  Those are simply informing you where a loop begins and ends.  You can hide those in the GUI if they bother you but it won't change the gcode and also the various colors (red, green, yellow, white) can be informative and helpful when trying to understand cura settings.

      • 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.
