UM3 Material Grinding

Recommended Posts

Hello Ultimaker community,

In the middle of a print, my ultimaker 3 has started to air-print. When I checked what was wrong, I saw that the material was being grinded and a dollop of plastic was stuck to the tip of the printcore. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix this?

Thanks,

cmssss

Does it look like your printed part came off the bed? Or is the plastic on the end of the nozzle tip coming out of the nozzle? If there was nowhere for the filament to go (for example, it got burnt into the tip of the Core), then it could fail to extrude and result in grinding.

What material are you using? What settings?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
