UM3E First Glob of material stays stuck under print head

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I am having often the same issue:

When the printer starts a print, she does a small glob of material in the top front corner, but I often had that glob stuck under the print head and ruining the print, so the only solution I have found is to wait and remove manually the glob before it starts the print.

More often when printing with ABS, and really often with PVA

Hi Swissengineer,

We are aware of the 'blobs' not sticking to the build plate and we are working on a solution to the problem, thanks for reporting!

Sadly, I can't give an estimation on the fix date just yet. :( Keep an eye on the changelogs when new Cura's are released if the issue is fixed.

    • "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.
