  1. Hello! I have a UM2, and think about upgrading to this "Matchless Block" i've heard alot about recently. I am wondering if anyone has experience with atomic Pulls regarding these. How does it work when the Matchless nozzles have this kinda "mechanism" inside? I'ts kinda new so im hoping someone have already tried it! Also, anyone have experience printing with 1.5mm nozzle? Is it possible and is it worth it? Thanks you in advance
  2. Does your problem meet all the similarities as mentioned in this thread or could it also be regular under extrusion for example? Alot of my prints lately look alot like the pictures posted in this thread. Lines are not touching but some places they are. 0.1 setting hides it for the most part but it shows sometimes. I might aswelll try the axles, if that doesnt work, ill look into buying the kit upgrade after the printer isnt considered "fresh". But if i recall correctly, there should be a way to check the axles right? If they have the correct distance and all?
  3. Hello! I just found this thread about my exact problem! Is the issue really fixed? Is there really no other way of fixing this except buying a whole new upgrade kit? I've got a fairly new printer and haven't printed much at all, kinda hurts to buy a kit that expensive when i feel the printer doesnt really need it. Is warranty a solution here? Thank you in advance
  4. thank you for quick and good answer as always. I could rather just smear some silicon or something on the inside to make it watertight if needed though? By the way, am i able to get one of the screws for the axis pulleys? i noticed that im missing one.
  5. i guess its worth to mention. i use PLA/PHA from colorfabb
  6. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:903411 Printed these with: 0.2 0.8 shell 100% fill to get watertight 30mm/s bottom layer 10mms 0.3 layer outershell 20mms im trying to make this but the print either get extremely ugly or the White pot doesnt get watertight. I use my old printer for the white part and 1 month old for the blue part. This is how they look. I'm already printing very slow and ofc, ive tightend everything as asked and cleaned the nozzles. Why am i not getting this right? I see plenty of others printing with PLA getting this right even with the "fast" simple setting and look
  7. Yes agreed, thank you for your consistent help gr5 on my other posts aswell, i seeme to be running into ALOT of problems in my starting days as a 3d printer, each and everytime crushing my sould and leaving me clueless, but eventually fixing it. This rollercoaster of crushing dreams and rebuilding it really saps the energy out of me.
  8. I figured it out! I know gr5 told me never to remove the transparent cover, but i had to. I noticed that one of the switch cable looked abit sketchy and i wanted to give it one last try before i sendt it back. As you see on the photoes, the Red cable, looks like its supposed to be welded to the switch, but the connecting point of the cable and the switch was waaay too weak and small. So i trimmed off some of the red rable on the end to give it bigger space to "connect with", mounted it on the switch with the black sleeve, and it worked! This might have happend due to VERY VERY small vibrati
  9. Oh yes, i went over all the pulleys i touched the first place many times. And yes, i removed the inner white cover after gr5 told me to, and checked the stepper. Its tight and running good. I cant believe how this could happen. As i mentioned in the first post, i pressed "home head" to check if everything was allright after the tightening, and it went fine, but when i started a print, thats when it went wrong, and havent been able to use the printer since.
  10. Hello, thank you for you answer. I cant think of any reason how this is possible, NEVERR touched the switch or the cables, i just adjusted the extruder head so i could tighten the 2 pulleys in that corner and centered the axis. In that case, am i able to get the switch pack by warranty or something? the price for the parts is 15 euro, which is lovely, but 30euro freight? :/
  11. Hello! the topic says it all Printer was working 100% fine and just did a 35 hour print. After this i thought about doing some maintenance on the machine to keep it fresh, cause lately, ive bought a new printer, and rotating its extruder head around feels alot less resistant than my old one, i sometimes had to put alot of force into moving the printhead left and right(standing infront of printer) And noticed the printer wasnt finishing the top layers too good, so i tried to tighten the pulleys and basicly everthing i could tighten. including centered some axis, as one of them was sticking o
  12. Thanks for feedback! I figured it out. i Changed the nozzle and the prints looks alot better! I think the previous nozzle had take too much beating from alot of experiementing, as it has been my first nozzle with 0 experience printing what so ever.
  13. Hey again! thank you for great answers, but i got a new question! These pictures below, is from my first printer, its printed with ¨ 0.2 layer 1.2 shell 30mms on everything 10mms bottomlayer. 210c. 10%infill. Can you see the rugged and thick lines? how does with happen? but not with my newest printer? ive done atomic pulls and everything, is it time to change nozzle? its been printing for 925 hours. 963M This is from my newest printer. no problems
  14. Now this is great. After 400 atomic pulls and pressing down filament and pulling up, the belt pulleys are now damaged and the prints im making looks ugly cause of the pulleys adjusting the nozzle up and down on fixed locations. Now this is a major problem. I tried to fix this by moving the extruderhead along its full range of movement to see if it helps smoothing out the imperfections of the pulleys, but then the printer turn off and now i cant do anything, it just wont turn on. I need expert help QUICK! please!
  15. The lines that goes upwards the print im making? how do they occur? 0.4 noz 0.2 layer 30mms 10-15% infill. i think 0.8 or 1.2 wall. not sure at all
  16. This is the nozzle of the new printer ive just printed the terminator head with, and failed 2 times. I see a tiny bit of light, heat up the nozzle to 210-220, and nothing happens.... WHAT??? NO filament is going through the nozzle, how is this possible? its a brand new printer and i see light through the nozzle, i havent use ANY other than PLA on this, NO woodfill
  17. for the New printer, i used the filament that came With the printer, silver pure PLA. On my 5 weeks older printer With 600 hours on, ive used PLA, PLa/PHA from colorfabb, XT-polyester from colorfabb And least but probably the biggest issuer, woodfill. Woodfill totally screwd me over many times. its like you have to be present while its prints all the time, very frustrating trying to make something in Wood that take 82 hours ect. My older printer i can understand is abit reduced in the nozzle, but the New one? i dont understand. I have NOT used and will probably never use woodfill on my newe
  18. I am actually struggling to do proper atomic pulls atm, plastic wont extrude when i press filament down in the nozzle, and wont get a proper grip of whats deep down in the nozze. i thought when printing with 0.2 layer, 30mms was a good speed? and 10-20 for 0.3 first layer. anyway, the rest of the print was done with 30mms overall, i even increased to 214c because of feeder slipping and struggling with the first layer. I am really frustrated about this. Ive got 2 printers here and all of a sudden im having major nozzle problems. I didnt say anything about my second printer before now, but th
  19. This is a brand new ultimaker 2 im printing with. its my 2nd one. So right out of the box after test print, it fails this. First try, i came back from work after putting it on before i went to bed, there was a layer or 2 that showed underextrution, which ofcourse ruined the whole part. so i had to start over again. This time when i wake up, the base wasnt even finished before the nozzle clogged and is flying in the air. How is this possible? Pictures below shows settings, i tried to print relatively slow, i have no idea what im doing wrong.
  20. I dont know if i told, but i did use some oil on the filament, it didnt slip or get twisted at any point, making the phone cover. i did the cover with 15mms, and will try 10 now to see if it makes differanse. what printer would be best to use for ninaflex in that case?
  21. Hello! Im back for more questions! I recently picked up ninjaflex to try make some iphone covers. This is how it looks like The bottom got very smooth and nice, but overall, it looks shit tbh, how can i improve this? Settings used: 0.4 nozzle 0.2 layer 1.2 Shell Retraction enabled (forgot to turn this off after reading alot of recommendations) 1.0 top/bottom 100% fill 15mm/s and overall speed 100mms travel. 6hours 50min. After seeing some layers at start, i tried to experiment abit to try improve the print. I dont know what the problem is or how i can fix this underextrusion?
  22. DidierKlein, thank you for Your reply! Do you have an "overall" setting for making vases? including expert settings and Advanced? I see small tooltip on each and every expert setting there is, but is there anywhere i can find more detailed tooltips about them? maybe Picture on what differance they make and when to use them for best results?
  23. Hello! I have some picture that i hope will help. Here are 4 vases i tried making, all of which failed, starting from left side first. I forgot to uncheck “solid top” though, other than that, its not waterproof and its VERY stringy, the second one aswell. Third one was done by spiralize, with absolutely 0 strings, its perfect, but again, its not watertight. 4rth one I made thicker in bottom, I think 2mm bottom, and 1.2 shell. It still leaks like a river. It didn’t even finish, I even set the temp to 240c before I left home to return back to this. All vases was done with 30-50mm/s. at leas
  24. Hello! I'm Daniel and i've had ultimaker2 for about 2 weeks. Before i go to topic, i really need to say that im happy i bought a 3d printer, i absolutely love the machinery, and recieving it was the day my life got "extended", i felt like. But now.. im kinda in doubt and misery. I'm having a deal of problems and been reading forums and other websites for help. I love it when i get prints 100% good and working, but this rarely happens at this rate. First of all, the filament is slipping in the feeder behind, it does this all the time, even when loading a new filament, it starts making this
