Posted · Same PLA. Same File. Two Different Printers. Two Different Prints

Hello, 

 

I am having trouble with my Ultimaker 3x. I recently did a firmware update and am wondering if it is the cause...?

I have attached a photo of two prints, same object file, same material, two different printers.

The object on the right was printed using my Ultimaker 2x, the left object was printed using the Ultimaker 3X.

The one on the right is smooth, one on the left is wavy. Same material, same file.  

 

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi and welcome to the forums.

     

    Which print settings did you select in Cura for the UM3? The wavy pattern might be due to ringing (can't see properly though, maybe you have a closeup on the UM3 model?).

    Hi,

     

    take a look at this guide:

    https://support.3dverkstan.se/article/23-a-visual-ultimaker-troubleshooting-guide#ringing

     

    Ringing can happen when the head performs quick moves. Reading through the guide I see that it might also be the infill showing through the outer walls. I am not sure about it either, maybe others will chime in.

     

    Which print settings did you set for the print on the UM3? The screenshot you posted looks like Cura 15.x and for the UM3 you should use the latest Cura 3.4.1 (well for the UM2 too but if you can).

      • 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
