Loop not complete in Vase mood


Recommended Posts

Posted · Loop not complete in Vase mood

That's not much of a view but it looks like the model has a hole in it.  Those types of models aren't suitable for vase mode because the nozzle has to move from the outside wall to the inside wall.

It's possible you have coasting turned on as well.


In Sprialize - Cura tries to do everything in a single loop but if there is a hole in the model then it can't.  There is a definite beginning and end to each loop and you end up with seams on both the inner feature and the outer wall.  I think that's what your image shows with those red lines that are crossing the middle.  Those lines go from the outside wall, extrude across the space, and do the inside wall as if nothing happened.  Then the inner wall extrusion stops, there is a travel move back to the outer wall, and extrusion starts again.

      • 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
