UM2+ Blobs/ooze

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Any idea what's causing this to happen? Using an UM2+ with Porto-Pasta Carbon Fibre filament. No heated bed, extruded at 235°C. I can print the exact same part on my other UM2+ with identical settings flawlessly. No idea why it isn't printing on this one. Also having the same issue with my UM2.

Cheers

Rich

Yeah that was my thoughts as well, but to get that sort of result I would expect at least a 20°C plus temperature error. Can they really be that far out between 2 printers that are the same model?

Sorted the issue, hopefully on both printers. On the UM2+ it was a partially blocked nozzle, so a couple of atomic pulls solved the issue. On the UM2 with a Bondtech feeder I think its wearing of the drive gears. So just waiting for replacement ones to arrive to see if that fixes the issue.

    • "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.
