Hi eceryone. I bought a material called PLAx from a company name Magma earlier this year. But i have not unpack it until yesterday after I just finished using my old filamen. It was still in vacuum when I unpacked it.

 

However, using the recommended nozzle temperature of 200°C-220°C, which I selected 200°C I didn't manage to achieve descent quality print. I tried twice and the result swere the same like the attached image.

 

Any idea what went wrong in the printing process??

 

Please enlighten me. Thanl you in advance.

    That's severe underextrusion.  You are getting maybe 10% extrusion.  Try higher temperatures and/or lower speeds.  What does the manufacturer recommend for nozzle temp?

     

    If that were PLA I would say it looks like you are about 50C too cold (printing at 150C) or about 10X too fast.

     

    Is it possible that the diameter of the filament is wrong?  If you inserted 1.75mm filament instead of 2.85mm that would explain the problem.  Or if you received 3mm filament (instead of 2.85) and it reaches 3.1mm in places it would get all jammed up in the bowden.

    I will try slower print during the weekend.

     

    When looking on your pictures, I don't think just printing slower will solve your issue. 

    You should double check it you can print normally with your usual PLA material or if you have additionally clogged nozzle or issues at the feeder.

    Ok. It was printing fine before I changed the filamen. But I will look into it again during the weekend.

      • 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
