Print Sequence - Ultimaker S3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print Sequence - Ultimaker S3

So I'm trying to print one at a time.  I have the setting turned on, but it took me about an hour to figure out from another thread for a different brand printer (that was IDEX) that I needed to turn off the S3's second extruder.  As soon as I disabled it, the option showed up.


Shouldn't Cura be able to detect this on it's own printer and at least tell you/warn you.... or know we are only using one extruder anyway, so let's display the option?

I know!  Right? 


This is only ONE of the problems if you have an inactive core enabled.  For example if you are printing ABS on the left core and pla or pva on the right and don't disable the right core then the bed temperature is all messed up and your print will come off the bed.


Now you know: ALWAYS disable a core that isn't used. 


But why can't cura just determine this automatically?

        (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.
