UM2+ XT-CF20 Gaps

Recommended Posts


I have an UM2+ that is leaving gaps between the infill and the shells. It has been back to UM and they fixed the feeder that had something snapped inside. However this hasn't fixed the issue. I have tried changing the print temp, adjusting the short belts, adjusting the extrusion width, the overlap and everything you can tweak using Simplify3D and still can't get rid of the problem. I get the same issue using Cura as well. However if I print the exact same part with the exact same settings on my UM2 it prints perfectly. Couple of pics attached. Its more obvious using XT-CF20, but the gaps are there when using PLA.

Anyone got any ideas?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
