  1. Hi. I have been facing this issues since some time now. The PVA Support material does not print well. I Store the PVA in sealed bag when not in use, also, i have just opened this filament maybe a week back. When i use the same spool on my UMS5, it supports really well. I really need some help in sorting this out. The support seems to underextrude at some layers, but then it fixes itself on other layers. Would really appreciate some help from the community. Thank Abdu
  2. Okaayyy!!.. So i made a test print with my Ultimaker S3's 0.25 nozzle on Ultimaker S5, and the print is just amazing. i have to say, i have never expected it to be so neat. the layer lines are invisible.. its a lovely print. it was 4 walls of 0.5mm in my CAD file, and print came out to be 0.51mm, thats really impressive. Here is an image: Ignore the base, thats because i pushed my scraper way to hard in excitement ? But, the alignment issue of the calibration print still haunts me. Have to do something for that. Thanks..
  3. one thing. after getting extrusion right from the 0.4mm nozzle, i pulled out the 0.25mm nozzle from my Ultimaker 3. and put it into UMS5, and then did a calibration print. This time, i get the extrusion right. So i think, the problem, is the nozzle. I think i should order another nozzle from my reseller after giving it a test print to confirm. BUT, the tilt in alignment still persists. one thing i noticed, is that the tilt in alignment with 0.4mm is way lesser than the tilt with 0.25mm(Both old and new nozzle) . I really need @gr5's help here. Thanks
  4. With the 0.4mm nozzle, in cura, i get a orange colour on the textbox when i enter 0.4mm or below.
  5. I put the 0.4mm nozzle. Results: The underextrusion issue is solved.. the filament comes out really well. BUT.. The calibration print does remain tilted for Y axis if i align for X axis.. Any ideas?
  6. Hi I dont think the silicon pads have anything to do with the print quality. I have read your reply nearly 10 times by now, but fail to understand that even if Ultimaker have launched a new nozzle design, how come the UM3 0.25mm nozzles fit so well on the UMS5. If you see in this image, UM says they support the 0.25mm nozzle. So its nothing to do with not supporting it. However, i take your word pal. Giving 0.4mm Nozzle a shot.. Will let you know how it goes
  7. Thanks for taging them for me.. Well the thing is, it took nearly 8 days for my printer to arrive her via DHL due to customs issues. I have prints to deliver and cannot afford to waste so much time in sending the printer, getting fixed and getting it back. I will however try using my 0.4mm nozzle for giving a test print and look out for underextrusion. If problem is solved, i will order another 0.25mm nozzle considering i got a faulty one. If problem persists, i will take is as a bad luck ? i think the nozzle might fix the underextrusion, but im really confused about the alignment.. Expecting some helpful fixing suggestions from @gr5 and @SandervG
  8. Thanks kmanstudios for your reply.. Does Gr5 or SandervG have any suggestion ? Would be really helpful for me..
  9. It would be a big cost for me to ship such a heavy package, get it fixed, and shipped back.. As i am in Kuwait, and my reseller is in UK.I have already paid a big price for getting it here.
  10. Hi all I think this thread is never going to end. After i had tried everything to fix this problem, one solution seemed to make the situation better, and that is, to print TPLA at 225C. But then, i noticed something with the next print. that is, that areas where the support material is, the straight walls along z axis, arent straight. there are some layers left and right, and not exaclty on top of each other. PS, this is only if the wall is has support beside it. So then, i tried doing the XY Calibration again. The calibration print, bought a facepalm. I am shocked. I am using a genuine Ultimaker, Ultimaker branded nozzle, ultimaker materials, ultimaker slicer(Cura),but still, things doesnt seem right. In the first image, as you can see, when i align the grid for X correctly, the Y goes tilted(Red arrows). Also, the numbers and the long PVA lines are not aligned properly(Yellow arrow) In the second image, Notice the nice and good black lines(purple cirlce), and those underextruded dots(Blue circle). Am i missing something guys?? i am highly frustrated with this now. i have lost lots of filament and time for this. I have done literally everything i could. I did the following: manual Bed levelling. Cleaning 2 weeks old print core Changed to UM filament cleaning Bowden Tube Factory reset Firmware Update Changes USBs(sounds silly, but i tried everything i could) Print through Network Doing the entire maintainance procedure Loosening the feeder cleaning the feeder The only step i feel i am missing, i think, is to return this printer. I regret buying this. Should have gone for Sinterit SLS printer or maybe Formlabs..
  11. No. i havent tried it on my UM3. But there is one thing i am 100% sure of, and that is, that there is some problem with my UMS5. The Innofil i used previously also had the same problem, but less, whereas the UM3 worked fine with the same Innofil material, with a 0.25mm print core.
  12. okay.. so i did everything i could, but i am still unable to crack this. My Ultimaker S5 hasnt still been capable of beating my Ultimaker 3 with quality. What i noticed when i watched closely, is that after some really nice looking layers, the extruder starts extruding dots of filaments instead of proper lines. and that just ruins it by making the surface coarse and cracky. i had kept a 21hr print and noticed this happen many times in between. Here is an image of it: As you can see from the image, there is a band where there is less filament extruded. It would be great if someone can provide me exact settings for Tough PLA for a 0.25mm extruder. Am i missing out anything?
  13. Yes sir. I had to clean the tube as well. as there were particles of filament on the inner walls of the tube.. Thanks
  14. Thanks a lot.. i opened the feeder, and there was debris of my innofil material. also, when i unloaded my TPLA, it clearly showed signs of a very tight feeder, so loosened it a bit.. So now, i am hoping a perfect print. Thanks all for your help. I appreciate it.
  15. It has just been 2 weeks since i have bought the new printer, and installed the new print core. however, i will still consider cleaning it. Regarding the firmware, i am using 5.0.19.20180622 which is the stable one as of today. There is a firmware under testing as well, which i havent installed. Thanks
