Problems in Cura 14.07

Recommended Posts

Hey, first post. Got my machine and been printing for a couple of weeks now. Had just started getting to grips with the full settings and today was printing at .6 happily. Update 14.07 came through, so I stuck it in and tried a test print. I Adjusted all the settings I was getting used to in full settings on a part, which before took 1.2 hrs to print at .6 and a speed of 50. Firstly, it was telling me it would print in 5 mins. So I tried that and it was like watching a mechanised tube of toothpaste moving around. Basically, as low a quality as you can ever get and the part failed. I tried every setting over and over, even re-starting the program and nothing seemed to get me out of low quality settings. Print time varied from 5 mins to 13 mins, so its adjusting something. In basic, its printing in high quality, but I really need the .6 for what I'm doing. Any ideas?

Can you try:

"Expert -> switch to full settings"

"File -> Save profile" (Store it somewhere, so we can look at it later to see what was wrong)

"File -> Reset profile to default"

Try what it says after that. It that fixes it, then some setting in your profile must have been messed up.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
