I seem to have an extruding problems with ultimaker v2 using olsson block by using th 0.4 and 0.8 nozzle

I can hear the stepper motor skipping steps and see an under extrudin in my prints what should I do

210C nozzle

60C bad

50mm/s speed

I have seen this problem occur in 100 to 200 microns z resolution

    OK, here are a few questions for narrowing down the issue:

    - Is it a new problem of a configuration which previously worked? Did you successfully print with the Olsson block?

    - How stable is the temperature?

    - Have you performed some cold pulls?

    - Have you tried to print hotter? 210°C is certainly too cold for printing at 50mm/s with a 0.8mm nozzle and 0.2mm layer height.

    - Is the Bowden tube undamaged and clean?

    - Are the teflon and the stainless steel isolator sitting at their correct places? Any gaps?

    - Did you change the nozzle while it was hot?

    I'm currently using the 0.4 nozzle and getting extruding problems add 210c 50mms

    The printer is four days old should be undamaged as well as clean and teflon should still be as good as new I currently have a 2 mm gap in between the stainless steel isolator and the teflon like recommended in the Ultimaker ios app.

    I always change the nozzle at around 150c since it is a lot easier at that temperature

    I have did some cold pulls like you recommended but it make no difference :(

    It's the stock filament what comes with the Ultimaker. it happens in the first layer as well as the layers after. But it doesn't happen in every print even if it is the same model sometimes it does sometimes it doesn't under extrude so it's not really consistent

    How does your first layer look like?

    If it's really squished then maybe the bed is a bit to close and the filament has a hard time to come out. This could damage the filament in the feeder and cause more underextrusion after

    Yes it does look like the first layer is quite squished

    Should I do another bed calibration

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
