Odd Behaviour

Posted · Odd Behaviour

I have a very odd issue that is also random but only happens when slicing with Cura. After a print has finished sometimes the machine goes to it's far extremes causing the dreaded clicking. Even the filament sometimes reverses, it's almost like everything has suddenly reversed. What is odd is that sometimes it doesn't happen. If I use S3D or Prusa Slicer etc I have no issues, exactly the same start and end g-code, Marlin etc etc. Any ideas?

    It sounds like something is going on with the End Gcode when it switches to relative extrusion and/or relative movement.

    Copy the ending gcode from the Cura machine settings (you will have to use CTRL+C) and paste them into a post here.

    Cura uses it's own "keywords" and curly brackets where PrusaSlicer keywords are in square brackets.  So if there are keywords in the ending gcode there could be problems.

    The fact that it "doesn't happen all the time" is troublesome and might point to the firmware.

    Has this been going on long?

    What printer are we talking about?

      • 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
