Ultimaker 2 Extended rattling when printing

Posted · Ultimaker 2 Extended rattling when printing

Hi

I have just bought an Ultimaker 2 Extended and I'm trying to print a shield on high quality. I've noticed that the bed is rattling when the UM2 is printing the honeycomb structure. It appears the nozzel is hitting the honeycomb and causing a vibration. When printing the edges and the detail there doesn't seem to be a problem. Any ideas what's causing the problem?

Thanks

Hi and welcome!

How does the honeycomb look like? It might be that the nozzles oozes a bit and causes some "little balls of melted filament" in the infill, then the print head hits theses artifacts and makes the bed vibrate?

Maybe reduce the infill speed. Can you post some pictures?

Your video doesn' seem to work
