Posted · My Ultimaker 2+ is a realy Diva! :-( - I have big problems to print large plates!

Hi!

I'm an owner of an Ultimaker 2, i installed the 2+ upgrade-kit (stepper, feeder, Olson-Block,...) and at first it works pretty well.

Now i want to print a big plate with a high of 5mm, but that's a big problem for my printer!

At this time I use a 0,4mm nozzle, Olson-Block (i have tested 220°C,225°C,230°C,235°C,240°C,...) and Innofil-Filament. The Printer beginns to print...everything looks perfect. 5 minutes later the printer has extrusion-problems. - Remember, bevore this printjob, everything (little printjobs,...) works very good!

I changed the nozzle, the bowden-tube, and the heatbreak is brand new, too. Nothing of that solved the problems!

I tested a lot of thinks, but the results are realy bad...and I was spend to much of time in solve these problems! Now I have no idea what is wrong.

THX for help!

    Could you show a photo please? It sounds like underextrusion. There are many causes. Having a large print is not a cause. It's common for extrusion to get worse as you get higher though.

    In particular I'd like to know your speed, layer height, print temp (I know you said 220-240) and nozzle diameter.

    The most common problem is printing too fast/thick for a given temp/nozzle.

    It could also be too many retractions. A photo of your part would help to diagnose if this is likely the problem.

      • 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
