Nozzle Drifting in Z over time???

Recommended Posts

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!

    • "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.
