Ultimaker Original+ Under-extrusion


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Original+ Under-extrusion

I built my printer about a month ago, and it has been having some pretty consistent under-extrusion. My settings so far have been:

Layer Height 0.25 mm

Shell Thickness 0.4 mm

Bottom/Top Thickness 0.8 mm

Speed 70 mm/s

Flow Rate 110%

Infill Speed 80 mm/s

Top, bottom, outer, and inner shell speed 70 mm/s

Temperature 220ºC

Bed Temperature 70ºC

I tried printing the V29 Whistle, and it has some layer gaps, and at the top, there is space between the lattice (pictures below). The whistle (needless to say), does not work. Have any of you experienced this?

    Maybe someone else can give you input on that, my umo+ uses 1.75mm so I print much cold. Anyhow it depends on the mm3 of filament/speed. So it's something you need to play with, and changes from pla to pla (even same brand different color). Just before of going 230+ aince pla can burn inside and make a nasty clog. Also remember to do atomic.

    If your printer can print hay at 50% speed, them the problem might be somewhere else.

      • 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
