Has anyone come across this at all? I haven't been able to find any other posts about behaviour like this. The shell is printing great but everytime it tries to do the infill, it comes out looking like the picture.

I jut switched over from ABS to PLA and had a hell of a time unclogging it, but eventually got it extruding nicely. If it wasn't for the shell, I would think there is a clog. I have this printing under the default normal settings.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Um - "never use default settings"??

    I don't know what they are but I believe it does infill at a faster speed.  You are probably already printing close to the limit for your given layer height and temperature and the infill speed is probably much faster.  I think defaults are 50mm for shell and 80mm for infill.

    Here are top recommended speeds for .2mm layers (twice as fast for .1mm layers):

    20mm/sec at 200C

    30mm/sec at 210C

    40mm/sec at 225C

    50mm/sec at 240C

    The printer can do double these speeds but with huge difficulty and usually with a loss in part quality due to underextrusion.

    Thanks for the reply. I didn't see this till just now. i will try those out and let you know how I go. It's weird as this problem has never popped up until just now but thanks for the input.

      • 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
