Re: Streaks in pla print

I would think it would finish the final top layer before moving onto the logo. As the letters will have "space" above the base of the letter, the slicer will leave gaps there and just print infill for that section. This means when printing the flat area "solidly," it will get to under your letters ...

Re: Taz 6 not powering up

Any ideas what to check? Start by checking the to 5a nano poly fuses: RAMBofuses.jpg The usual cause of a blown fuse, would be a short to your hot end. Never use any metallic objects when cleaning the nozzle. Inspect both sets of wires (thermistor and hot end) going into your heater block, to ensur...

Re: Streaks in pla print

Why does it streak like this around the logo? Those paths will be due to your top layer settings within Cura LE. Essentially what is happening, due to your model geometry and lettering there it is trying to optimize the travel path for the tool head. It will change directions, and leave a gap to co...

Re: Cura 3.6 very slow

I had been using 2.6.69 for about a year or so with no issues. Spent a lot of time creating filament profiles and the like. Due to the changes in CuraEngine from 2.6 -> 3.6 the older profiles you have developed will no longer be compatible. The lag you are describing sounds like a profile conflict ...

Re: Can't Import 618 Nylon and other new profiles

Thanks for the link! The profiles located there are for Cura LE 21.08 and earlier versions, and will not be compatible with Cura LE 2.6 and newer. We will be sure to get that page updated. As for bed adhesion with nylons, we recommend using a PVA glue stick on the bed to help hold that down. Adding ...

Re: Can't Import 618 Nylon and other new profiles

Can you post a link to where you found the profiles? 618 was discontinued a little bit ago, and as such we have not developed new profiles for it. With changes to Cura Engine, some older profiles are no longer compatible. We would like to double check these profiles, and get up a notice if required....

Re: Need a smooth first layer / e-step and z offset woes

How are you handling your z-offset now? After updating your firmware, you will need to reset your Z offset to what it was previously using a M851 command in the console. If you did not jot it down, you can adjust it on the fly while your first layer is printing. After starting a print, open the con...
