    Hi and welcome to the forums!

    Hm, the print sure looks bad. Did you check (and how) that the nozzle is not partially clogged? Also make sure the filament is still fine. If it was stored incorrectly, it could have deformed.

    If possible, post your print settings too.

    we've de-clogged and changed the nozzle and that hasn't made a difference. the bed temperature is 60 and nozzle is around 220 celcius. The reel looks fine.

    PTFE coupler!

    Bet you a beer.

    If everything has been working great for a long time and you haven't changed anything (including filament brand) then it might be that pesky PTFE coupler. It is the hardest thing to inspect, so it is always the last.

      • 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
