  1. Hello, I compared the data sheets of the following Ultimaker materials: - PLA - PLA Tough - ABS Based on the descriptions, here is the classification of these three materials from the least resistant to the most resistant: 1 - PLA 2 - PLA Tough 3 - ABS And here is the classification of these three materials according to the values indicated in the data sheets, from the least resistant to the most resistant: 1 - ABS 2 - PLA Tough 3 - PLA Can you check the information in your data sheets plea
  2. Good afternoon, Hello to everybody! I'm writting here because the last few days I've been having a lot of issues with breakaway clogging. I was printing a part that lasted 3 days and when it had printed pretty well for one and a half days the breakaway got clogged. I did the atomic clean up, everything seemed to work fine, but two hours latter the printcore got clogged again. I've tried many things, cleaning, changing parameters in cura, changing the spool to another location, ... but any of them worked. I finally changed the printcore to another
  3. I am trying to 3D print a diving canister used to store battery packs that power underwater torches, heating elements, etc. Traditionally these canisters are machined with a lathe using Delrin acetal homopolymer (Polyoxymethylene POM). They are often rated to 200 or even 300 meters (600-900 feet), which means 21 to 31 bars of atmospheric pressure (300-450 psi). This is how a Delrin machined canister would look like: And this is one of the 3D model to be used for 3D printing: I know POM-C is available from FrontierFila and Uayella as
  4. Hello, I have been trying to trouble shoot this Z-axis issue for this part; and after long hours and much frustration I have determined that the Z-axis is not advancing for this particular model. I Ran into this issue once before but I solved it by rotating the part 180 degrees. In this particular instance the geometry does not permit rotating the part to test if this would solve the issue. I am printing with Ultimaker PP. Its a part that I designed in SolidWorks (I haven't had issues with any other parts I made). I used cura 4.8.0 to slice the part, and it doesnt give
  5. Hi, So I just tried to print with a brand new Ultimaker PC using default Cura 4.8 settings (Engineering 0.15) with an AA 0.4 head. Ok, I did modify two things: I enabled blob and disabled brim (since the print has a large bottom surface). I used a liquid paper glue for adhesion. I priinted with doors closed and with an extraction fan in the hood (not very powerful though). The issues are (see attached pics): - "hairs", some of them burned (I used this head for tough PLA before - can that be the reason?); there are even hairs in the fan! - relatively poor surface quality - p
  6. Hi, i’m new at 3D printing; this is my third print 🙈. i noticed some strange pits and extensions, while printing in fine 0,1mm with some adjustments to speed (max 35) acceleration (max 2000), print jerk (25) and outer before inner walls (these changes were made because of some suggestions in a YT movie, to print more precise) printer S3, tough pla and pva. And maybe its just normal, because of the circumstances (next to openings which are supported by pva)
  7. Is someone sucesfull and consistend printing PVA with the Ultimaker S5 Bundle? I got Problems every print I do with this. Now im using Brekaway whenever ist is possible, but sometimes I need PVA. (And of course I bought the Material station etc because of the "good" handling for PVA) Some times the PVA broke, and stook in the material station (see Picture), other times the PVA broke at the extruder and the printer says "extrusion problem". Other time the PVA was stook in the tube to the PrintCore. Are there solutions or experience with this ? Of co
  8. Hi All I hope this is the right place for this. We are having issues with Ultimaker filament spools we tend to get through about 25 spools a month, and use a material station with our S5. Every so often (we now have 6 of these) we get a spool that will not recognise, so there is no point adding to the material station as it will never take from it if a spool that did recognise runs out. Is there a way to "fix"/ replace just the tag as we are starting to build up spools of perfectly good materials that are just increased hassle to use.
  9. Hi, I'm looking for a trick to print PP (or more precisely "Fortis") with a soluble filament like PVA. Even if I know that PP can only be printed with PP supports. Thank you
  10. I wanted to ask about support material for our printer. I want to print accurate prints using engineering profile and still use support material but we currently only have PVA which from what I have read is only usable with a BB core. The problem for me is I have to turn off the extruder with that core or I can't use the engineering profile. Is there a support material I can use with a AA core or is there another way round using a BB core and still use the engineering profile?
  11. The Ultimaker Material combination table on this side https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011543699-Ultimaker-S5-Material-compatibility says that only PLA, Tough PLA, ABS and CPE are officially supported in printing them with themselves (e.g. two colours). Why are the other materials (PC, PP, TPU 95, CPE+) set to experimental? If I print a large object, it should be the same like printing a material with itself ... the material has to stick on itself, even when it has already cooled down?
  12. I have a problem with warping Ultimaker PP in a S5 with Air Manager. (Not warping on the bottom layer but after a coulpe of hours on the top layers). What is the suggested print chamber temperature for PP - In Cura, for PP it's set to 35°C but on the UM Material website it says 45°C (https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360011957660-How-to-print-with-Ultimaker-PP) What would you recommend? Altering the UM profiles?
  13. Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and also new to the 3D printing world. My company just bought an Ultimaker S5 and we would like to get our spools from Mcmaster carr. Did any one have any issues with those spools or with the quality of the materials ? Do the spools fit in the machine wihtout any trouble ? I know I have to look for 2.85mm diameter filament, but is there any other spec I need to check to make sure the spools are compatible with my printer ? Thanks a lot!
  14. Dear users, I would like to know if someone has experience with TPU95A 3D printing. Currently I get my job done but I think there is still rooms for improvement. I'm printing this kind of cylinder (height: 10 mm, look at the picture ). I tried different printer parameters, mostly towards to slower process and increase temperatures. Can you share some advise for fixing some of the bad prints layers (they looks mostly in the upper part)?
  15. The title says it all. I'm looking to print something that is like rubber or silicone for a client. Even if there's no such filament that soft and flexible, what would be the closest possible filament to work with?
  16. Hi all i was wondering if someone could help me as to why my Nylon print came out fury. I used Ultimaker material with Ultimaker Natural PVA as support with the standard pre-set material setting and i have all these stringy/ curly bits all over the print. Can anybody help with setting change i might need to make to get a smooth consistent finish. I have attached some pictures showing my issues
  17. Hi every time i try to load material lately i am getting a error message. It says multiple materials found load one material at a time. I am loading Ultimaker materials not aftermarket ones how do i fix this issue see attached image also when starting a print i get another message stating conflicts basically the printer think the wrong materials have been loaded. Any help fixing these two issues would be much appreciated. again image attached for second issue BTW i am using an Printer
  18. Hi guys, Lately we are encountering a lot of bonding issues with breakaway and nylon (see pictures). We got the same issues with Tough PVA and breakaway. I do not understand how this can happen, knowing that on the lower side, it is impossible to remove all the breakaway material. But on the overhang side, it seems that there is no adhesion at all.... Also I'm using standard profiles with no modifications. with 0.4 print cores, at 0.15mm height. UM3E, Cura 4.6 Please help 😭
  19. Greetings All, We recently purchased a S5 Pro bundle and I am in the process for getting it setup, received it last week. I have some questions about how the material station behaves and I haven't been able to find answers in the manual or the forum, so here goes. I just had my first NFC fail - this seems be not uncommon - after a bit of mucking around I understand I can safely set the filament type during loading to a generic version on the printer interface. My understanding is that the generic material settings are the same as the ultimaker materials by default.
  20. Hi All, I have a work project where we are using UV ink in conjuction with some 3D printed parts (currently in PLA). The UV ink is sticking to the PLA Parts I was curious to know if there's a Filament out there for a UM2 that would cause the ink not to stick to the 3D print. I can find out more information about the ink if required. Thanks in Advance, Kiran
  21. We recently changed the Filament from Ultimaker PLA White to Ultimaker PLA Silver metallic. The print shown in the pictures is the first print after the material change, it shows signs of underextrusion that didn't occur with the white PLA Filament. We removed the Material out of the Bowden-Tube and saw the scratch marks that produced by the Feeder which wasn't the case before. I would like to know if anyone knows what the problem could be or has some ideas.
  22. I am trying to implement Breakaway in an academic maker space and I am running into some issues with surface quality. To start: I am using a UM3 with Ultimaker brand PLA and Breakaway. The machine being used for the test is serviced on a monthly basis and has no other issues. Slicer settings: (Default for Cura if not stated) Layer height: .1 Infill: 40% Model Extruder: Extruder 1 (PLA) Support Extruder: Extruder 2 (Breakaway) Support Z distance: .1 Prime Tower: Enabled I came to these settings after looking through the forums
  23. Hy! I want to print the 3D part which can be found in the attachment. The component is designed for outdoor use therefore PLA cannot be used. Our experience is that the part exposed to solar radiation is deformed. For the printing I use original ultimaker abs filament and RS PRO PVA HT+ which is based on the manufacturer's description excellent adherence to ABS. My poblem is the ABS dont adherence to special PVA material. Print settings ABS: 245°C nozzle PVA HT+: 225 °C nozzle Bed: 100 °C cooling is always off To the bed I use UHU glue and its smoothed with w
  24. I am looking for the best material to print inspection fixtures for our coordinate measuring machine (CMM). The parts that we will be measuring are small and the fixtures will need to bend slightly to clamp the part and hold it. The dimensional accuracy is only relatively important but the most important is the extended lifespan of the fixture through the bending. We have a Ultimaker 3 and are open to trying any materials. Thanks! Please let me know if you have any questions about the application or requirements and I will answer them.
