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!

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
