Posted · underextrusion multiple models ?

hey, So I'm trying to print multiple objects on my UM2+ext, and it underextrudes severly see picture




The one below is taulman bridge, no prob

in the middle, colorfabb PLA, no prob

Up, taulman bridge but printing 20 same models at the same time, Not good on any of them


They all use the same settings, can't find the way to copy/past all settings from cura and I'm shure, the settings I'll give you will not be relevant ^^ I'll just say 100% infill, 70mm/s speed, 6.5mm restractation.


merci beaucoup !

    Hello, I never actually changed my TFM coupler, but after checking, there are no apparent damages on it, no burns or anything... Should I change it anyways ?

    Can you share a picture of it? Just because it doesn't look burnt doesn't mean it's not worn out. The more subtle wear and tear signs are:

    * It's not round anymore

    * The opening at the bottom is wider than it used to be

    * Scraggly edges/lips that will catch the filament.


    How many print hours are on your printer? Maintenance --> Advanced --> Runtime Stats.

    The printer has 1200hours, in 3years ! I'm not a big user I guess ?


    The narrow end was aliitle rough, so I trimed it a little ( not very good at it ^^ ) filament could pass smoothly and still can... But it's allitle tiny bit ovale !

    I'd go ahead and change the coupler. Better safe than sorry, and it does look like it's got wear on it, even without heat discoloration.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
