Can someone explain this?

Hi,

I have an Ultimaker 2+ for about a month. I tried to print some Nespresso Caspulate Dispenser I desinged myself. They have a triangle cut out, and therefore some overhangs. The strange thing is, that on the left hand side, they look really good, while on the right hand side it looks a bit clumsy.

I have also changed the nozzle (from 0.4 to 0.25) to see, if it has something to do with the wall thickness.

The curaproject (as I'm using 2.4 BETA right now is here https://hyttioaoa.de/tmp/Nespresso.curaproject.3mf).

Edit: I'm using PETG as material. And I already set down the travel speed to the same amount as printing speed, to reduce vibrations.

Did I mess it up with some settings, or is the model somehow strange?

Thanks a lot for any hint in which direction I have to think.

    one thing you can try is to rotate the object 90 degrees. What you are seeing has to do with the fans and cooling and because the nozzle is closer the left fan, cooling the object is uneven. Look what area needs the most cooling and place that towards the left fan.

    One side good vs. the other one clumsy is almost always due to print cooling... Since your machine already has two fans, you need to first check if they bot run and about equally good... if not, replace the fan.

    Meanwhile, you can orient the difficult parts of your model towards the side where cooling works best.

      • 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.
