[Solved] Ultimaker 3 has Suddenly Decided to OOZE!

Recommended Posts

My UM3 has suddenly decided to start oozing after months of printing perfectly.  I am still doing some tests to try and narrow things down and will post some images later but first wondered...has anyone else seen this happen?

I am using the same materials across a UM2 that is working perfectly and my UM3.  I am getting the same result on both AA cores.  I have cleaned the extruder driver (and it needed it).  I am using the stock profiles from Cura. I am running the Beta but am pretty sure that this started before I downloaded it (test coming).  I also have S3D so that is another test coming.

I have not done an atomic clean and am wondering if I should.  Just asking the question makes me think that the answer is yes!

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Will

No I haven't experienced this.

Do your atomic pulls. I don't think this would be the cause and I never do them on mine but it will eliminate it from the back of your mind.

CURA 2.4 beta has heaps of profile changes to previous versions so I would revert back to the version you used when you first got you're UM3.

You may have to do a fresh install by deleting the CURA folders that hold all the saved profiles to remove any possible changes that may be effecting your issues.

I did a cold pull and it came out remarkably clean. I guess there is something to be said for the UM3's handling of the print core! It made no difference as expected.

I had been coming to the conclusion that I might have an issue with the Beta and had just done a test print that goes at least part way to proving that point. I am going to take your recommendation and revert back to 2.3 (clean). Are there folders hidden somewhere that I need to wipe?

Thanks, Will

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
