cura print height is off


Recommended Posts

Posted · cura print height is off

Hi all. needing some help.
After having issues with print quiality i removed cura 4.8 and installed 4.13. but now print height is short. a part that is 20mm height in model and in cura but prints 1mm short. The X and Y measure 19.9mm which i expect
Printer is ender pro v2.
previous version i had installed printed exactly as expected, despite some outter shell quality problems.
so before i wiped 4.8 off i backed up my profile and reintroduced it to 4.13, a couple of minor things i had to change back is all.

now printing for a model that previously work perfectly is having size of parts issues.

I thought it was top and bottom layers count..seems not. i thought it was printer setup (dimentions) not setup right, seems not. i have double checked the carriage and the bed bearrings (even replaced them all) yet still no cigar.
I cannot believe that it is the printer itself as that has not changed only the version of cura.  Are there aliens in 4.13 that i dont know about?

Thanks in advance.

      • 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
