  1. Hi Guys, Any idea on why this happens in some areas of this thin wall print? It's part of an RC Airplane wing. It happened at the top of the print and a small patch halfway up. Using Ultimaker clear PLA at 215degC, plate at 60degC, 30mm/sec print speed. Didn't seem to happen with exact same settings using White PLA or an earlier version on the other half of the wing (opposite side). Could the room temperature cause this? Was a bit warm in the room where the printer lives today. Cheers Jason

    Clear Filament Issues

    Hi Folks, I am trying to print a 3D Radio Controlled Plane from the guys at 3dlabprint.com. They do all the hard work and just provide ready to print files. I succeeded in doing a test print in white PLA but in changing over to clear filament, I am having no end of trouble. It seems that it is either too hot (at 230degC) and melts the model in places, block the nozzle and them spurts out brown stained (burned) globs of material. Or too cold (at 215degC) and prints what looks like morse code (dot dash dot dash) and you can hear the material drive slipping while trying to feed material through. Has anyone else had this trouble using clear filament? I would have through what worked for while PLA would be the same for clear?? Thanks Jason

    Uneven Quality

    Hi All, Does anyone have any ideas of why the Ultimaker 2 using ABS might create such a variation in quality across the one print. There are 5 identical components in this print with vast differences in print quality (seems to get worse going from the one it prints first to the last one). See attached photo and profile. Thanks Jason [profile] layer_height = 0.1 wall_thickness = .8 retraction_enable = True solid_layer_thickness = 0.5 fill_density = 100 nozzle_size = 0.4 print_speed = 30 print_temperature = 255 print_temperature2 = 0 print_temperature3 = 0 print_temperature4 = 0 print_bed_temperature = 110 support = None platform_adhesion = Brim support_dual_extrusion = Both wipe_tower = False wipe_tower_volume = 15 ooze_shield = False filament_diameter = 2.97 filament_diameter2 = 0 filament_diameter3 = 0 filament_diameter4 = 0 filament_flow = 100.0 retraction_speed = 30 retraction_amount = 3 retraction_dual_amount = 16.5 retraction_min_travel = 2 retraction_combing = True retraction_minimal_extrusion = 0.02 retraction_hop = 0.0 bottom_thickness = 0 layer0_width_factor = 150 object_sink = 0.0 overlap_dual = 0.15 travel_speed = 150 bottom_layer_speed = 40 infill_speed = 0.0 inset0_speed = 0.0 insetx_speed = 0.0 cool_min_layer_time = 15 fan_enabled = False skirt_line_count = 6 skirt_gap = 0 skirt_minimal_length = 150.0 fan_full_height = 0.5 fan_speed = 17 fan_speed_max = 75 cool_min_feedrate = 20 cool_head_lift = False solid_top = True solid_bottom = True fill_overlap = 20 support_type = Lines support_angle = 60 support_fill_rate = 15 support_xy_distance = 0.7 support_z_distance = 0.15 spiralize = False simple_mode = False brim_line_count = 20 raft_margin = 5 raft_line_spacing = 3.0 raft_base_thickness = 0.3 raft_base_linewidth = 1.0 raft_interface_thickness = 0.27 raft_interface_linewidth = 0.4 raft_airgap_all = 0.0 raft_airgap = 0.22 raft_surface_layers = 2 raft_surface_thickness = 0.27 raft_surface_linewidth = 0.4 fix_horrible_union_all_type_a = False fix_horrible_union_all_type_b = False fix_horrible_use_open_bits = False fix_horrible_extensive_stitching = False plugin_config = object_center_x = -1 object_center_y = -1
