Blobs on Printout


Recommended Posts

Posted · Blobs on Printout

These blobs are probably overhangs.

I have written a blog on how to improve your overhangs.

It could also be heat radiant traveling up.

It is hard to tell what the exact model is, but if those are completely round spheres you will probably always have some form of blobs.

    Thanks for your reply.

    It is supposed to be a round sphere and I'll read up your blog on how to improve overhangs - thanks!!

    Once I get my new main board tested and calibrated (the old one fried), and read up on your blob, I'll run another print with a sphere and see if there is any change and let you know.

    I installed the latest stable version of Marlin on my Adrino style board and am happy to report that the blobs are not nearly as bad!

    In fact, they are nearly gone!

    I was reading the release notes and it said it uses 'predictive' pathing so that it doesn't just zip around corners and fling filament, it slows down instead.

    Makes for a much nicer print...however, now the time predictions in Cura are about 25% under...

    Guess you can't have everything! :)

      • 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.
