Re: Unable to get nice print since Cura 2.6 first released

Look at the image below, my filament is shiny gold, i'm not making this up. Cura 21 has been fine with its default settings. With the new update Cura 2.6 I'm getting different kinds of issue with most of the default profiles I tested. I tried simulate and copying most of my tweaks from Cura 21 to Cu...

Re: Unable to get nice print since Cura 2.6 first released

The material itself is shiny. However, i tried printing the benchy again in 195, it grinds, and this happens. Any suggestion?

Re: Unable to get nice print since Cura 2.6 first released

Done. The exterior of the hull is smooth, however the letters at the bottom is unreadable. There are still lots of stringing at inside. The layer near the roof seems to be skipped.

Re: Unable to get nice print since Cura 2.6 first released

Too be fair, there are A LOT of filaments in the market you and I have not heard off or tested to be used with Cura. However, we as a consumer of other filament brands are stuck with Cura since we are automatically embedded to use Cura ever since purchasing a lulzbot. You can't just leave us in the ...

Re: Unable to get nice print since Cura 2.6 first released

I'm using a chinese brand, been using 7+ spools from them since Cura 21 so I don't think that's the issue. I can't go any lower than 200. I did try 195 once and it grinds the filament, figure it might be too cold. Any advise?

Re: Unable to get nice print since Cura 2.6 first released

Done. The only improvement is less blob, but it still exist. I also noticed the extra prime amount is at 0mm. Stringing is very bad, I can't lower the temp. as any lower as will grind my filament.

Re: Unable to get nice print since Cura 2.6 first released

I printed before using HQ profile, there are still blobs, now that you mention the extra prime amount, I'll see what's the value in HQ profile and try lowering it further. I'll be posting result again soon.

Unable to get nice print since Cura 2.6 first released

Prints has been bad since day 1 using the new Cura 2.6. See attached picture. My prints came out perfectly using the old Cura 21 version. I know there's no such thing as "perfect" in 3D printing, but it came out waaaay better that Cura 2.6. I tried tweaking different settings one at a time. It fixed...
