UM S5 deep verical stripes on printed cylinder.


Recommended Posts

Posted · UM S5 deep verical stripes on printed cylinder.

I made test print with UM S5. Sliced with Cura 3.4.1. Left Nozzle 0.8AA (blue)  and Right 0.4AA (green). Printed with PLA, settings are predefined by Cura, except layer height is 0.1mm. Cylinder inner diameter is 10mm and outer is 15mm.


0.4AA Nozzle printed very deep identical stripes around outer perimeter of cylinder. These are ca 0.3mm deep. What is causing this issue?

    Please change the colors in cura to show the different line types and make them all visible.  Is it doing non extruding moves (the blue lines) a lot in that area?  Maybe make sure to turn off "coasting" and possibly "outer wall wipe distance"?  Maybe.  


    I'm really just grasping at straws here.  But I would print a test cylinder and make sure it is still doing this strange issue and then see if changing some settings corrects it.


    I'm not familiar with this particular issue.

    It is not related with coasting and wipe distance as the stripes are identical around the outer surface of cylinder.

      • 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
