Posted · Problem at the end of my print

Hi UM2 users !

I have an issue at the end of my printing process. When I lauch the print it all goes well until I get to the 3/4 of my object ans suddently I got holes and little pieces in my print and even deformed tip at the end. My filament doesn't flow well at all but only after 2 or 3 hours printing...

Can someone help me please ?

    There are different possible reasons why this happens. Share some pictures of the design and I'm sure we can solve it.

    Also, as there are so many things to take into account, it would be necessary to know the material, temp and speed you're printing with. What you're describing reminds me when I print really small design where the printhead doesn't let the plastic cool down, deforming the shape. If that's the problem, know that the solution to that is available in Cura (it was called "Cool head lift" in Cura 15.04).

    YES ! :-D

    That's exactly the problem I am facing right now ! The printer goes to fast and is to hot and doesn't get the job done... I also have little strings everywhere on my print.

    I'll snap some and send it to you as soon as I can.

    Thanks for helping.

    For solve this problem, the best way it's to print "refrigeration tower" next to your first object. When you print the second one, the first one can cool down! Your refrigeration tower can be a second object or just a cube^^

    The other option, like "Miminum layer time" when combine with "Cool head lift" but filament is often burn into the nozzle...

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
