UM3E here~

So while printing this thing from that thing place (just the base piece mind you) - had an interesting issue, so decided to print it again - this time with the second extruder.

Item on the left is printed with the bundled PLA - item on the right was printed with Maker Series `Urban Fossil` PLA.

What do you guys think? And what can I do to avoid this?

I've yet to mess with the main extruder after this print in order to avoid further issues for now.

    That is a severe case of underetrusion. And it looks like it happened quite suddenly which makes me think that something might have happened with the spool. Could it be as simple as the filament getting tangled on the spool?

    Thanks @IRobertI -- I'll take a bit of time and inspect the spool to see what happened.

    Hoping it was a simple issue as you described.

    ---

    Had a chance to remove the filament and inspect the spool -- had no issue with that but the slack in the bowden tube showed plenty of bite so it was definitely stuck at some point -- or it simply had a hard time rotating the spool -- going to have to set up a camera back there to see what is going on those long prints.

    You may also want to go ahead and do an Atomic cleaning on the AA Core that had the under extrusion, just to make sure there's no burnt material in the nozzle, since it sounds like it kept running overnight after failing to extrude. The UM2 atomic method instructions here should work equally well for your AA Core. The only difference should be the menu for setting the temperature. I think it's Material --> Print Core 1/2 --> Set Temperature now.

    If you have issues with the BB nozzle however, there are different instructions here, due to PVA being more temperature sensitive.

      • 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
