Cura 14.03 strange behaviour with too thin walls


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 14.03 strange behaviour with too thin walls

I'm trying to find the right way to print architectural models.

Up too 13.12, Cura was just ignoring the too thin walls (like for example windows in my models, that would be .01mm thick). SO the doors and windows wher automaticaly removed.

In 14.03, those very thin parts are sometime strangelys fill, with some layers filled, and some ignored, resulting in very ugly printings.

    Could be that the fix-horrible type A (which was default off in 13.12, default on as of 14.01) be causing this.

    from my experience. it is better to export your model without the glass in the windows and doors. it is just extra data that cannot be printed at the scale of an ultimaker print. it is better if you remove all the small tiny elements within a window and just have the outside frame. if you need the inside frame, increase the dimensions so they are printable...

    mini mini details and super thin parts are no help to you or the print process... I learned that the hard way !

    I agree with you, but to have cura automaticaly ignore them was a great help for not wasting time: I could use the same model for the plans printing and for the 3dprinting.

    But if I want to see the doors and windows printed, then I have no choice than to make them thicker.

      • 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
