Clicking sound on bondtech

Hello !

I recently changed my PLA supplier (now PLA economy from Colorfabb) in 2.2kg spool and I started to hear clicking sound on both my UM2+.

I have bondtech feeders, tinkergnome and (normally) I set everything up correctly. I do not have underextrusion at all... I tried to loose the tensionning screw on the feeder and to increase the printing speed but I still have this (VERY ANNOYING) clicking sound. It occurs each 5 or 10 seconds.

Maybe I did not hear it before because of the size of the spool and the lack of resonance... 

Do you have an idea ? 

 

If you need any extra info and/or pics, do not hesitate ! I am note sure what could be of use here...

 

Thanks a lot ?

    If you start to hear clicking sounds when putting a 2.2kg spools on the back instead of the standard 750-1000 gram, the last thing you should do is speed up the print, and loosen the tension, try the other way around.

    thanks @phantom

    the problem was the increased friction due to the increased weight of the spool

    the tension was building itself on the filament guide and every 5/10 seconds the tension was released and it "clicks"

    I strongly advise a separate spool holder for this size...

    Now the spool is on a spool holder with bearings and there is less friction than with a regular spool (but it's taking a lot of place XD)

    I took care of the angle from which the filament enters the feeder and it's printing like a charm now !

    Thanks @phantom ?

      • 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
