Problem with treefrog's nose


Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem with treefrog's nose


I've been trying to fine tune my Ultimaker settings with the treefrog. Otherwise it's quite close to perfect, but for some reason the "nose" does not print ok.. I've tried different speeds, temperature, decreasing the filament flow etc... Could you please tell me what's wrong?

    It's the overhang. You will get best results with more fan. And then try more fan. And then more. For example maybe a house fan. The first step should be to rotate the frog such that it is facing to the left because that is where the UMO fan is and the UM2 has a fan closer to the nozzle there.

    Also lowering temps can help. What is your current layer height and printing temp and speed? I would slow things down to maybe 20mm/sec and maybe 190C to get better results on that overhang. Overhangs like this are very tricky. Another frog model that is looking up more such that the overhang is more vertical would help a lot!

      • 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
