Posted · New Colorfabb XT spoon and I have to change my default settings

Hi All,

I have a situation here with a new Colorfabb XT white spoon that just arrived today.

The new spoon is a big one, a 2200g. That´s because I had a great experience with this filament and I decide to buy the big one!.

I use Cura and I have print profiles for different filaments and Nozzles, so I don´t have to configure it every time I change the filament.

Right now I am printing with XT white with the profile that was working great before.

But now, with the new spoon, it just doesn´t work. The settings for my UMO+ are:

Nozzle: 245°C

Bed: 65°C

Fan: on (100%)

Speed: 50mm/s

Now with those settings, the print delaminates itself after de second layer (when the fans are on). The first layer, without fans works just great, but then it´s a disaster. Now is printing with those settings:

Nozzle: 250°C

Bed: 65°C

Fan: off

Speed: 50mm/s

At the moment it looks good. Actually, meanwhile everything works fine, I don´t care wich settings should I use , but I am confused about.

Did someone had ever the same issue?.

Thanks!

    I have been using nozzle 240 bed 70 fan about 40% 30 to 40mm/s and getting good layer bonding with white xt 750gram spool. Summer here at the moment too.

    I don't use XT but you often read, that fan above 50% is not recommended because of layer adhesion. Seems you found that yourself already :)

    Thanks for your reply @owen and @avogra,

    I just found out, that for XT white with a 0.4 Nozzle, fans on at 100% just doesn´t work at all, but with a 0.8 Nozzle it work just great. At least for my UMO+

      • 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
