Hi there,

Who also uses this filament?

It cracks horribly, even when the fans are off. Cannot print even the cuddling cats - they are split at several places along the horizontal lines. :-(

I use the glue stick, bed at 70-75C, head = 250C, 0.1mm layer, 30-50mm/sec speed.

    That is an ABS filament

    ABS is tricky

    More heat (I think the min is about 260) and slower

    but ABS is notoriously difficult because of warping, splitting and layer adhesion.

    Yup. It is indeed seem to be very tricky. The poor cats simply crack and split by horizontal layers.

    However, I do print at 30mm/sec at 250C and the fan is off. What else can be done?

    This won't help with the problem at hand nor answer the question asked ...

    Also, please beware, as this is mainly hearsay, but doesn't orbitec have erm somewhat of a reputation for filaments that tend to print ... not so well?

    I got one spool of their PLA and it needs ridiculously high temperatures or it will clock (because, somehow, it just doesn't flow very well) at which it will sooner or later start to burn (building up black lumps) inside the nozzle and - yes - clock. Ridicules stuff. However, this might be an exception to the rule (as might be the bit of flaming you could find on the internet about some of their stuff being of somewhat inconsistent quality).

      • 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
