UM2 popping noise when printing rafts

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 popping noise when printing rafts

When I print rafts with my UM2 ive noticed a popping noise created randomly as it goes around.

I've honestly got no idea what's causing this but it doesn't sound great.

 

Many thanks in advance

That sounds very familiar.  I think you have the black feeder on your ultimaker and it's skipping backwards.  Watch the feeder while this noise happens - you should see it jerk back.  It's not going to damage your printer.

 

The problem is you might get some underextrusion for a few seconds afterwards.  If so you can fix this whole problem by moving the bed a little farther from the glass so you aren't squishing so much.  I'm not a big fan of that solution because then the part won't stick as well.  

 

You could also raise the temp a bit on the bottom layer.  Or get a more powerful feeder (like the meduza feeder ($19 USD in my store in USA/canada - thegr5store.com), the bondtech feeder (much more than $100), or the plus upgrade from ultimaker (around $400 I think USD).

 

Or you could make the bottom layer 0.1mm thick instead of the default which is around .3mm thick.  That's a good option as well.

Thank you gr5, I had the first layer hight set above what it should have been, turned it down and is working flawlessly.

Thank you

    • "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.
