There is an issue printing an 'a' while printing a name 'Matt' for my box. The blob in the middle of the 'a' does not stick well to the bed. I have tried 3 times and failed. It keeps coming off. Please advise..

    The problem is that the "island" in the a is not at the same z coordinate as the bottom of the mesh. So the island actually sits a bit above the mesh and does not get printed on the first layer. The difference is about 0.2 mm

     

    You either have to fix the model, or you have to sacrifice 0.2 mm of your model by lowering it "into the buildplate" in Cura (ie: set the z of the model position to -0.2).

    Many thanks for your reply. Where would I find the 'Z' in Cura settings ? A snapshot please.

    Hiya..........many thanks. It was my model which I found the 0,2mm different. I have corrected now but another issues arises after I printed the same model but with a different name to mind. Attached are photos shows the lumps. My settings in Cura was see attached snap shots. The thickness of the lid is 2,00mm and the depth of the name is 1,00mm.

    I did not turn on the fan on my printer machine then, maybe it was the issue with 100% speed and I have reprinted again and there are a small couple of lumps again with speed at 65% and the fan on this time. Oh.........I hate seeing these lumps appearing and what caused the problem. Please advise again and many thanks for your help and input. Take your time.

      • 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
