printing with 0.25

Recommended Posts

Posted · printing with 0.25

after a long time i tried out the 0.25 nozzle, but it went all wrong.

the matrial came from above from the Olsen block and not from the nozzle. Now I can only change the nozzles if I heat it up a little.

In cura I change the setting for the nozzle to 0.25 and wallthickness to 0.5

I was trying with different materials (pla,abs,xt) from colorfabb nothing work.

1. Is there a way to get out the matrial from the Olsen block and the nozzle?

2. what for settings do I need for a successful printing ?

    I didn't change any settings at all other than layer height when I first used the .25 nozzle. I think when you set nozzle size in cura it automagically sets first layer height n such to adjust for it.

    It sounds to me like maybe you didn't tighten the nozzle when you put it on. (I made that mistake once.) Also, maybe increase temperature +5 degrees? it could be it was a tad too low before, but sufficient to still push out the larger diameter nozzle opening, but the smaller one wasn't.

    If you are in expert/full settings view in Cura and you only change the nozzle diameter manually, your print will fail. But if you use the quickprint settings for 0.25mm for the UM2+ (lower speeds) everything should be fine.

      • 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
