cura 5.0 merging parts together


Recommended Posts

Posted · cura 5.0 merging parts together

so if you can see the picture you can see what is supposed to be a planetary gear bearing. the inside stars rotate around the centermost hub, but for some reason cura is deliberately merging what is 2 separate parts purely based on their proximity: the hub spokes cannot rotate if they are part of the outer ring. on previous versions there was a setting to 'fill gaps' or something that i cant find anymore. i could tolerate it on the first layer but its doing it on MOST layers, almost all. help?

    This model just came up with a brim problem.  With the model loaded and Cura set up to slice use the "File | Save Project" command and post the 3mf project file here.  I sliced this with 5.0 and it was fine so it must be a setting.

    Slicing Tolerance must be set to Middle



    And reduce the Horizontal expansion -0.3 is too much

      • 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
