Cura does not print what is displayed

Posted · Cura does not print what is displayed

I have been using a embossed logo on bottom of my models. It has always printed fine. Today it just stopped printing it. The same model that printed fine yesterday will not print today. I tried to go back to other models that printed the embossed logo. Thisalso will NOT print anymore....what gives??? I am doing nothing different, Did Cura have a stroke??

Did you re-slice the older models or just use the gcode you already had?

 

Because if it's the latter, it's almost certain it's the printer that had a stroke.

 

If older gcode works fine but anything new you slice has the problem, then it would help if you could share a Cura project file (.3mf, set something up ready to print and go to File > Save Project) so we can see if there's any settings that may have gone haywire.

 

I'd also try opening the gcode file itself in Cura - if your embossed logo appears in that, then it's probably the printer.

    Unfortunately experiencing something similar. Compiling a substantial post about it as we speak.

    Original G-Code prints identically as originally created. Re-sliced G-Code based on source project (.3mf) file does not produce the same results. Re-creating the exact same setup/settings and re-slicing also does not produce identical G-Code not print results.

    There's a pretty big difference between "the Z seam isn't as good" and "this embossed part doesn't print at all". One is a matter of quality. The other is the slice being produced not matching the input model file.
