Posted · Ultimaker Original Plus: Question on printing surface quality

Hi folks, can anybody help me out find out the reason for this surface issue?

Extrusion surface is making linear holes when I try to print.

Filament: ABS

Nozzle Temp: 210

Layer height: 0.12

Shell Thickness 0.8

Bed temp: 50

Thanks in advance:-)

    Hi looks like under extrusion. The cause is most like way too low a temperature for ABS. It should be about 245 to 260 depending on the brand of filament and the volume of plastic you are trying to push through the nozzle (speed and layer thickness).

    Try setting the temp at 250 and see if you can manually turn the extruder by hand and see if you easily get a smooth flow through the nozzle. Adjust the temp up or down by 5 degrees at a time till it seems right and then try printing at that temperature.

    As a rule of thumb (materials may change and it also depends variating speeds)

    PLA: 210ºC / 50mm/s

    ABS: 250ºC / 50mm/s

    CPE: 250ºC / 50mm/s

    You may also want to turn up the heated bed to 90ºC, but perhaps since you also use the blue tape that is not necessary.

    Good luck!

    Also check your feeder spring tension - it should be compressed when closed such that the spring is about 11mm long I believe (my UMO is a few years old and things have changed). Tight enough that you can see the diamond pattern in the filament.

      • 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
