Well. That didn't work.

Posted (edited) · Well. That didn't work.

I've been so happy that my UM3 has never failed a print once it got past the first layer (build adhesion is still occasionally an issue). I started a dual-extruder print -- nothing that seemed too complicated, PLA with a bit of PVA support -- made sure it got past that first layer, and left for work. After around two hours I thought to check in on it remotely. Hmm. No. That doesn't look right.Disaster.thumb.jpg.03e4aecc9bc2bde1237ffbaa14791f3a.jpg


I aborted the print, eventually made it home... no. That definitely doesn't look right. ?




Looks like I'm having spaghetti for dinner.

Anybody else got some funny failure pics to share?

Welcome to the oopsie club. ? I stopped taking pics of this ages ago because I found that 90% of such failures were due to my errors in cleaning and putting down a proper adhesive layer. I mean, it ran from failed priming towers (Not my issue on that one) to getting in a hurry and not just doing one or two things. The worst is the filament crawling up inside the printhead. With that in mind, be happy that s'ketti was all you had to deal with ?

Oh, how "disgusting" that looks nice, I have not seen for a very long time ?

At the moment I only have this to offer:
Unfavorable settings in acceleration mainly I think. And it's not the best material either. But heck, it's stuck on the platform. And after removing the spaghetti it should be usable. Anyway, the surfaces look acceptable, I think ?


Greetings and good luck for next time print.

    • 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
