Problem with specific filament on my um2+ extendeds

Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem with specific filament on my um2+ extendeds

Having a weird issue on both of my ultimaker 2+ extended. This issue only occurs with makergeeks filament. I only use pla right now. Example of what happens is the pink flower. Print has really thick grooves, also some under extruded areas. Nozzle is never clogged, as print finishes. Gold flower is polyalchemy gold rush. This issue happens with every color of makergeeks filament. Seems to be more of a problem when printing at .2 layer height. 

Printing specs:

0.6 hardened steel nozzle
0.2 layer height
Cura 3.3.1 (also had same issues on 3.1)
Using built in pla settings (230 temp with 0.6 nozzle 210 with 0.4) 
Bed at 60 or off (both results are same)
Print speed max 50 and I've dialed it down on the ultimaker directly to even 75% of that speed, no change. 
Flow at 100% increasing this had no change.

While the gold flower looks like it sort of had the same issues I think this was heat caused as the darker areas are not any more pronounced than the other layers. The layers all feel the same height. With the makergeeks pink flower, you can not only see but feel the difference where the lines are greatly indented compared to the gold flower.

Any advice on what to change? Printing at 0.1mm layer height seems okay. But for speed I sometimes need to print at 0.2 layer height.

      • 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
