UM3 extrusion problem

Posted · UM3 extrusion problem

I'm having a problem with extrusion that I'm not finding described anywhere else in the exact manner it's happening with us.

 

We're trying to print PLA on an Ultimaker 3. The material will extrude just fine UNTIL the print itself starts. We've tested "moving" the material through the Material/PrintCore > Material 1 menus. And the UM will extrude the little pre-print blob. But when it moves over to actually print, no material comes out (or verrrrry thin amounts).

 

Any advice?

 

Thanks!

    Hi,

     

    did you try to print different models? If you are using Cura, take a look at the "layer preview" to see if the generated gcode does indeed extrude something.

    If you did use Cura, which profile did you select?

    We tried printing models that had previously printed with no problem, but they have the same issue.

     

    The printer WILL extrude, just not during the actual print

     

    We're using the Normal 0.15mm profile, which is what we've always used.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
