Strange behaviour of Cura 4.13.1 (and also older versions)


Recommended Posts

Posted · Strange behaviour of Cura 4.13.1 (and also older versions)


First, my system data:
Printer: AnyCubic Mega S Serie 1, Marlin 2.0
Octoprint with RaspI3b
Slicer: Cura 4.13.1


I have the following behavior on my system:

- I drew a cuboid (edge length 35mm, height 15mm) and exported it as STL

- loaded into Cura and sliced with the following settings: wall: 1, top:0, bottom 2, infill:0%, so the result is a shell without a lid, with wall thickness 1 (nozzle is 0.6mm), all speeds are at 100mm /s (don't worry, I don't really want to print with this).

- Printed (at a speed of 60mm), base plate starts like crazy, from layer 2 the printer falls asleep.

- Looked at G-code in text editor and found the following code:

;LAYER:10 ; Only an example, is for all layers >3
M205 X8 Y8
G1 F778.2 X117.492 Y127.2 E316.62785 ; print speed should be 6000!?
G1 X92.466 Y127.199 E317.8764
G1 X91.896 Y127.161 E317.9049

G1 F1535.1 X117.474 Y126.6 E366.66341; 2 walls 25,6mm/s
G1 F2268.6 X117.435 Y126 E377.49149 ; 3 walls 37,81 mm/s
G1 F2982.2 X92.549 Y125.399 E389.27574; 4 walls 49,7 mm/s
G1 F6000 X93.2 Y121.8 E1161.66962 ; 10 walls 100mm/s

Slicing again with one wall, but increasing the infill

G1 F2114.9 X117.492 Y127.2 E391.85053 ; 10% Infill
G1 F3323.2 X117.491 Y127.2 E443.19031 ; 20% Infill
G1 F4676.3 X117.491 Y127.2 E474.05769 ; 30% Infill
G1 F5779.3 X117.491 Y127.2 E486.18709 ; 40% Infill
G1 F6000 X117.491 Y127.2 E533.95532 ; ab 50% infill

Same thing, with "vase" mode:

G1 F777 X89.088 Y94.269 Z2.201 E322.83159
G1 X89.525 Y93.861 Z2.202 E322.86142
G1 X90.011 Y93.515 Z2.203 E322.89118

What happens here? I tried to print it at constant 100mm/s but I failed... Expecting all FXXX to be F6000. Any ideas?

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
