Print on Ultimaker 2 is bad

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am quite new with 3d printing. I am using an Ultimaker 2, and it worked fine for a while but eventually the nozzle got blocked and I opened it by using a needle and the athomic method. But after this, the prints have been really bad, and I have tried many different settings, adjusting the board of course, and a lot more nozzle cleaning without any success.

In the attached image you see a print before the hazzle underneath, and one from after above. How can I get the ultimaker to be precise again? All tips are very appreciated!!

Maybe this helps


You have underextrusion. Can be caused by a number so large of stuff. So, check that post, and if your coupler is ok. Then you can start checking everything else like hotend nozzle, extruder, endofspool tension, bowden... etcetcetc all listed here for example https://ultimaker.com/en/community/49951-filament-doesnt-always-extrude?page=last#reply-182960

    • "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.
