    Ultimaker 2
  1. Then I might ask if it's possible to order a new roll of filament to test if it's the issue. I had switched from 210 to 240 because I noticed the feeder skipped a lot during the printing. It seemed to have improved extruding at the time. Thanks for the help!
  2. @DidierKlein Hello Didier and thanks for the reply! The feeder is a standard Ultimaker 2 feeder if I'm correct. We don't have the 2+. The Filament itself is rather old for as far as I know, It snaps after bending a few times (Parts that have been near the heater that are cooled can be snapped by bending it once for ex. the rear end of the filament after changing the material). The PLA 2.85 mm filament is from Ultimaker itself. ( Or atleast it has the logo and brand name of Ultimaker on the coil so I'm guessing they came from them.) I'm printing at 240 degrees Celcius (Nozzle) and 60 degrees celcius (Bed). 60 mm/s. 0,1 mm layer height. 0.8 mm wall and top/bottom thickness. 20% infill density. Using a brim buildplate adhesion with a 8,0 mm width. When I push the filament trough manually it goes pretty smoothly. Did this several times already and that seems to work fine.
  3. Hello, I have been using a used Ultimaker 2 at my internship for some small side projects to keep myself busy during the internship. The only problem is that the Ultimaker didn't function propperly when I started on the internship. After cleaning the ultimaker's feeder and Nozzle it started working again as long as the filament was already loose from the spool. After a few prints the Ultimaker 2 has now stopped functioning propperly once again. I've tried several things: The nozzle has been cleaned several times, using the Atomic Method. The feeder has been cleaned several times by disassembling it and cleaning it. I have tried different kind of materials The PTFE Coupler is in almost completely new state. Yet for some reason when I try to print something close to nothing comes out of the 3D printer. Since the point where I checked the PTFE coupler the printer is now also extruding small bits of white plastic (Almost like when your feeder grinds white material.) Even though I'm using a red PLA filament while printing. As I said the printer is rather old and already used, it printed fine for some prints after I cleaned it when I first came here but since then it started malfunctioning. Does anyone have an idea what I can do to fix the problem? (As you can see on the picture, when starting it prints a small line of red and then it starts extruding little bits of white dustlike plastic.)
