Ultimaker Original Plus can do short prints but no long prints

Recommended Posts

Hi i am trying to print a 14 hour print with my Ultimaker Original Plus but when i try to print something that last longer than at least 8 hours the nozzle clogs somewhere during the print and i get half prints


For example with these prints they are halfway there and just stop and when i come back i have to unclog the nozzle

i have the same problem 

the filament burns out in case of the long time in heating area and clog the nozzle.

i have the problem with many cheap filaments and layer high at 0.06.

same problem with new nozzle, tube and peek isolator


try reduce the temperature and print bit faster.

its a kombination process with speed, temperature and flow.

    • "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.
