    Hi Edel,

    The attached photo, is it 3D Printed?

    If not, could you add a picture of your 3D print? That always helps in diagnosing an issue.

    Based on the picture, I don't know if I should look at the crack, or the surface structure or something else..

    Looking forward hearing from you!

    I think the object of interest is the string of filament while the blue paper tissue is just used as a photo background ;-)

    Holy! Thanks @avogra that was hard to see. Ok @edel please explain where that filament came from. Was an atomic? It's that how the filament it's inside the bowden? It's the filament just after going trough the feeder ?

    Info info and more photos. How it should be, how it did look, more.

    Hah! You are right! In my haste I interpret that as a crack in the surface. Now I feel stupid :p

      • 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.
