Over extrusion?

Posted · Over extrusion?

Hi, I have been having issues for some time now with my UM2+. I use S3d for my slicing. I have had what seems to be over extrusion issues and surface defects that I just cant get to the bottom of. I have tried adjusting all the settings in S3d that are supposed to help and even tried to reset the steps in the firmware. Currently the firmware is reset. I have measured the filament diameter in several places and taken its average size and tried to see when the blobs/zits appear but I can never tell for certain if they are at the beginning or end of a layer. The cube is printed on 95% extrusion rate. Should I ignore the figures and just keep reducing the extrusion multyplyer? Any suggestions would be appreciated as I have got a bit lost now

    I don't know about S3D slicer well but... as far as I know, it can be caused by retraction before outer wall printing or layer change.

      • 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
