Damn filament vendor! 1.75mm filament roll has 2.83mm fused section in it!

Posted (edited) · Damn filament vendor! 1.75mm filament roll has 2.83mm fused section in it!

What a nasty surprise I got when by accident, I checked my filament after my extrusion halted to a stop, with the filament ground (grinded?) into the profile of my drive nut...

Somewhere along the roll, I discovered something that looks like a section that was fused together,

or more probably it is just an extrusion fabrication error. In any case, that section has a diameter of 2.83mm, more than 1mm off the size it should be! Quality control please?

For the remainder, this filament produced by Esun is rated to be 1.75mm is actually closer to 1.65mm.

What else am I to expect of this spool?

That they would sell such is thing is really scandalous.

    Contact the supplier, report the problem and you may well find they will replace the reel as it is faulty there may be more than one ocurance in the reel.

    Don't rant and rage be polite and you will likely be treated well.

    Good luck

    That's what I did, and the supplier sent me a new one, from another batch. They indeed asked me for a picture of the fabrication label (including the batch ID) to send to the manufacturer probably.

    Nevertheless, any good manufacturer (the package in which this spool comes states "premium quality material") would have caught such gross fabrication error immediately, since this can be easily automated.

    Nothing is 100.000%, glad they sorted you out with a fresh roll.

    Now you have an idea to design a gauge that you tread your fillament through that will alarm if the filament is too large

      • 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.
