  1. Ok, so I went for another print today, which again was of terribLe quality, so I went ahead and printed the extruder test at the standard 210 temperature, which didn't work well at all So, I'd assume then hat I need to be printing at 230 with this Ultimaker filament? Or have I missed something?
  2. Rather embarrassingly, here I my extrusion test print, run at 230. It looks good! So the problem could have been solved by my tinkering last night, or the higher temperature (230 not 210) could be the fix or it may just be an intermittant issue (hopefully not the latter) Pm_dude - are you aware of anyone getting replacement fans from Ultimaker that are quiet? You can hear this thing on the other side of the house, with doors closed and the TV on!
  3. Thanks for the in depth reply gr5! I've emailed Ultimaker support regarding the fan, I bought the printer from a third party reseller, so I guess I could always return the unit if we also think the intermittent extrusion problem is a fault. Last resort option though. I've not changed a thing since getting it - still running default Cura settings (temp etc) and the filament that came with the printer. Believing the problem to be with the extruder, I have already removed the filament, opened the extruder to check for debris and put it all back together. I also played will the the extruder tension spring settings I do not believe it to be a problem with a blockage as filament does fall stright down rather than curling. I will note that my filament is dented after passing through the extruder, however after seeing other threads here, this seems to be very common I will try the print you linked to in the morning, aswell as placing the filament on the floor - although this is not ideal, I feel that I have spent a fair bit on a premium machine - I'd expect it to atleast work as advertised/intended!
  4. Evening! New to the Ultimaker scene, got my first Ultimaker2 over the Christmas holidays. Previously was running the Printrbot Simple Metal. Having a few problems getting the printer running how I want.. Some prints have come out fairly well - Others have not.. Reading the common list of problems I believe that this could be caused by extrusion problems? A little unsatisfied to have bought such a premium printer to have my 'old faihful' produce better prints. On abother note, I've found my model to be like a jet engine, it's noisier than the printrbot even when not printing! (The rear fan is insanely noisy- and is always on)
