Why is my printer/cura adding a whole bunch of extra rubbish onto the model?

Hi there

I've been trying to get to the bottom of this issue for weeks now. Sometimes my prints (Ultimaker 2) look fantastic see picture below:

It may not be perfect but it is good enough for me.

But sometimes it adds a whole bunch of extra filament, like this:

There is nothing wrong with these files. But here is my biggest issue, I'm trying to print this :

It will print the ring just fine (talking about the blue bit) but when it gets to the hooks it just looks like this:

As you can see there is a whole bunch of extra stuff hanging around.

What am I doing wrong? Does anyone have a config file for the perfect rapid prototype? Please help me!

Thanks

Jayden

    yes I agree with you, but that does not seem to help, I will try upping the speed to 250 but I'm not totally sure it will help!

    Any other ideas?

      • 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.
