Ultimaker 3 Filament detection wrong and to near to Headbed at Prints - but only on one side..!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My Ultimaker 3 Extendend does not recognize the enclosed (chipped) filament rolls.

At least PLA I have tried and now as good as consumed.

The holder I have contacted, filament coil threaded and through this arm with the feedthrough for the filaments - but so it always came to jam during the transport - simply also the axis with the recognition cable works

It so far. Is there exactly for mounting / troubleshooting videos or more accurate documentation? Actually, it just fits so, but work is different ...

The other is that the nozzle "roughes" over the printing part. I do a scan before every print and still pulls you with partly in the ears aching noise over the printing parts. The distance is in my opinion much too small! Also on the pressure bed you can see that! I have printed a round part. He prints a half, the second half prints it after the 2nd or 3rd layer - before the distance is too low, so that no material can get out in the area ...

Interestingly with the same component 2 times printed, the first time the distance was left too small, the second time right?!?

I hope you can help me and give tips?!?

Best regards

Digibike

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
