problems after update to Cura 4.8

by quinten123

I have one Creality CR-10s 3D-printer and one CR-10v2. since the last update to Cura 4.8 the extruder doesn't start extruding. This happends from the beginning of every print. I've checked al the cables and nothing seems wrong with that. I've also checked my slicer settings. Nothing seems wrong with that either.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

PETG and z-hop

by brunoosti

Hello! I have a Anycubic i3 mega-s with linear advance enabled (k=1 for PETG) and can print a perfect 2 cylinder PETG retraction test at 30mm/s + 3mm retraction distance (and 240ºC on the hotend).
Also, I have combing disabled (because of LA). So, in a more realistic print, the head travels back and forth to complete some top parts and spaces between walls, dragging some filament with it causing layer adhesion problems.
I thought to myself this must be a z-hop issue (which is at 0.1mm right now).
I still have to test it, but I'd like you guys opinion, as I'm not that experienced and may get lost in the wrong direction.
Should I increase z-hop or should I work on better retraction settings? Is there any other thing I might be missing?

Cura 4.x - Print Sequence - Once at a Time

by Norrin


is it possible to do sequential printing with Cura?

I do have an Ender-3 and use the latest Version of Cura 4.2.1. In the general Settings I have "Ensure models are kept apart" unchecked. In the Machine Settings I have the Gantry Height already pushed up till 999999 mm, but the sequential Print doesn't work. I've searched via google, but I couldn't find a working solution.

Have one of you a Solution? Or would it work with another free slicer?

Thank you

Cura 4.7

by FlightDad85

So, I cannot get any of my Sidewinder X1 profiles to take in Cura 4.7. Ok, Cura wins but could someone look at this photo and tell me what is happening here so I can go back to printing multiple parts at the same time without the gaggle that is currently taking place?

File not Manifold

by Tytheprintingguy

Hey everyone I am new to 3d printing so try and use small words please ;p
I am trying to print item 3403160 which is a high heel wine holder for my mother.
I am using Cura 4.7 and it says the file is not manifold.
I am also learning Fusion 360 but still pretty bad at it.
This is my first model with this issue so I don't know what to do.
Is there a way to fix this issue on fusion 360? or do you know of a good free program that fixes files?
I tried Jomatik.com to try and auto fix my file but it left a huge hole in the file.

Any suggestions would be fantastic thanks!
