Material not comming out

Posted · Material not comming out


I have been using my ultimaker 2 3D printer for a few months but now it is starting to glitch...

The material from the nozzle barely comes out and I can't manage to print anything. I've tried the atomic method and more but I still haven't manage to get it work.

Does anybody have a solution to this problem?

    Might be time to replace the PTFE coupler (the little white piece at the end of the bowden tube in the head).


    I have been trying to get some filament come out from the nozzle directly, with the nozzle detached from the UM2... So it doesn't come from the bowden tube...

    Any help with that?

    After you've performed a few atomics, can you see light through the nozzle?

    Also, you say that you're trying to push filament through with the nozzle detached from the UM2. Whenever I've tried that it doesn't really work as the filament melts and spills over the sides rather than going into the nozzle.

    How about temperature. If you do "Maintenance -> Advanced -> Heat up nozzle" and observe the temp as it goes up, does it look like it's rising normally? When you're at printing temp and touch some filament to the side of the nozzle, does it melt?

    Is the third fan working?

    - I can see a tiny bit of light.

    - The temp rises normally: about 5 celcius a second.

    - The filament does melt when I touch it.

    PS: the material does come out but twice a slow as usual, even it I increase the material flow.

    which materials have you been using?

    My block problem was after this order: pla, abs, pla, semiflex, ninjaflex, (block), atomic cleaning with pla removing lots of abs, perfect print again. Do it again and again

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
