Re: Printer disconnecting mid print

If you have the option to print from an SD card I would give that a try, if the print stops while running from a SD card as well it will eliminate this being a communication issue of some kind. Also, could you let us know what version of Cura you are currently working with? As well as the printer ty...

Re: E-steps and Z Offset Differences Between Different Filaments and Nozzles

When you switch to a smaller nozzle diameter it will almost always necessitate adjusting your Z-Offset to be a bit closer to the build platform. Just as you posited this is because the thinner strand of filament will require the nozzle be a bit closer to the build platform to achieve the same amount...

Re: cura wont start up

Have you tried a fresh install of the Cura yet? If not I would start there to see if this is just a pathway issue and reinstalling the software will correct things. For this you would want to first uninstall the software then clear your cache before reinstalling, we have instructions for all of thes...

Re: Help with Print Quality

Since you mentioned seeing the filament extruding thinner than normal the first thing I would suggest trying is some cold pulls, this should help remove any filament residue from the inside of your toolhead and ensure that the filament is able to flow through the toolhead as intended. Here are a cou...

Re: Best Practice for Swapping In & Out Tool Heads

You will need to flash your firmware when switching back to the stock toolhead, the reason for this is that the firmware on your printer tells it which toolhead is currently installed and allow the printer to account for the slight variances from toolhead to toolhead. We have a guide that goes over ...

Re: Saving/restoring profiles in CURA 3.2.27

To access your saveds profile first, select whatever Material profile you selected when you created your new profile. Once you have selected the Material that was used to create the profile, your saved profile should be listed along with the high detail, standard, and high speed profiles in the Prof...

Re: Minimum feature width?

Sorry for the confusion on that! You are correct in your assumption that the print thin walls setting was enabled in the later versions of Cura, for what it is worth it sounds like when you were looking at the newer version of Cura you may have been looking at the Ultimaker version. The most current...

Re: Minimum feature width?

One thing that may help with this would be the Print Thin Walls option in Cura, I have had instances where I modeled something that was supposed to be perfectly even but when I checked the wall thickness some areas were just barely thinner than others, it is possible that the curved walls were actua...

Re: using ninja profile but have the threads not bind to each other

Could you post some photos? Seeing some photos of how the prints are coming out and a couple screenshots of the settings that are being used in Cura would be be helpful to troubleshoot this. There are a couple different things I can think of that might cause this kind of issue and seeing how things ...

Re: SL .25 Micro printerhead, proper tension?

This might be a matter of tension and if so a good way to find the best tension for the filament you are working with would be to completely loosen your idler, load your filament into the toolhead, preheat the toolhead to extrusion temperature, then extrude 10mm+ at a time and slowly tighten the ten...
