I have attached a picture of the starting print. Its a flight for a dart. Just seems to be having issues printing small things. The flights of this dart do have a small wall thickness.

Any ideas on how to improve this. We have had the Ultimaker 2 for a couple weeks now and have had good success printing larger objects.

Thanks

Hard to tell form the picture and without seeing your print settings (or how large the print actually is), but I'd try slowing down the print for something this small and see how that goes first.

Look in layer view and see if everything is there. If some parts are missing it means they are to thin for the nozzle size. If you don't have the Olsson Block then you can trick the printer to think it has a smaller nozzle just by putting in for example .3mm nozzle in cura.

Print slow ( 30mm/s ) and cold ( 190deg ) fans on 100%

Would be good to see a picture of the actual model also.

It's very hard to get really nice prints on thin small surface items like this.

Slow, cold and multiple items to allow for more time to cool.
