Cura and Creality 3d V2, weird behaviour


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura and Creality 3d V2, weird behaviour

On my 4th print with the above setup, I tried the file  Running_horse.stl, Just to boldly go etc. I sliced it stock as far as I can remember (still learning), then started the print. The print started OK and even managed to the top of the legs. Then it went mad. I came to check it and found that behind the right front leg there was a tangle of filament that reminded me, as much anything, of a cat's hair ball. I paused, cleared it away and tried again. Same result. I watched from the other side and saw that the print head was waving about in the air between all of the legs, laying down filament. It seemed to actually print, but in midair. My wife did comment that she was wondering how it was going to do the stomach and maybe she is correct.

 

So. Where to from her, if anyone can help? Any help most appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

Nick

      • 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
