Nozzle Drifting in Z over time???

Posted · Nozzle Drifting in Z over time???

Hey Guys,

Just bought an Ultimaker 2+. I was able to print a few things before this started happening.

After about 4 layers the printer nozzle starts rubbing on the fill layer of this part.

It progressively gets worse until eventually, the nozzle starts running into the actual part.

I've leveled the bed several times using the ultimaker paper that came with the machine and following their instructions how to do it. It does seem to have any effect.

The printer prints the first few layers great, then all hell breaks loose.

I cant figure out what the problem is!

Could this be a software issue?

Im using latest version of Cura 15.04.6

firmware on the Ultimaker 2+ 15.04.6

Filament is Ultimaker Silver PLA @ 210º (the filament the printer came with)

I've attached the Gcode file here.

FEET_AND_FILL_COMBOv2_160808.gcode

Please help!

Thanks for being an amazing community!

    Hi and welcome,

    Can you show some pictures of what is happenning exactly?

    What are the cura settings and the object you are trying to print?

    How does printing the objects that were on the SD card go?

      • 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
