eSUN HIPS 3mm filament printing with 0.8 mm nozzle on UM2+

Hi guys,

I bought an UM2+ to make a robust and temperature resistant (min. 80 °C) case for a project. Since I am a complete newbie to 3D printing I started with the PLA filament which came along but it is of course a bad choice for the mentioned requirements.

So I chose HIPS because a friend who uses the Zortrax M200 recommended it to me. He used eSUN HIPS but with 1.75 mm diameter. Now I also bought eSUN HIPS but with 3 mm diameter. I measured 2.85..2.9 mm and left the value in the material.txt at 2.85 mm. Since I need to increase the print speed I changed the nozzle to 0.8 mm.

Now I am figuring several problems. When the bed temp is at 80 °C the filament doesn't stick to the bed anymore and comes off after the 2nd layer is printed. At 100 °C bed temp the print sticks to the bed but the area where support structure is placed comes off.

With 235 °C and turned on fans I am having the problem that the adhesion between the upper layers is very bad and I can peel off single layers or larger parts of the print.

At 250..260 °C nozzle temp I get sometimes "scratches" on plane surfaces.

In any case so far I am having the problem that the edges of the print will upend.

Another problem is that the lines are not placed directly adjacent to one another. There is a gap between them. What I found online so far, it looks like it is underextruded. But when I set the nozzle size in Cura to 0.4 mm it is perfectly fine.

When I print with 0.8 mm or 0.6 mm nozzle settings from Cura I also get more often "bubble" lines, like a bubble of material is coming from the nozzle.

Here are 2 photos (top and bottom) of an example which I started with 0.8 mm nozzle settings in Cura.

If anyone can help, I would be so grateful because it's killing my nerves and the Ultimaker is rather a Troublemaker to me now. Also the weather is currently very hot in Germany, I don't think that the temperature of the air is too low. I read in forums that HIPS needs to stay in a warm atmosphere. But I doubt that it is too cold at the moment.

    Is it ok, if I post this topic in the German section, too? I have the feeling that the participation there is higher...

      • 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
