Ultimaker 3 - Nozzle dirty/First layer not "smooth"

Hi everyone.

 

The company i work in recently bought a Ultimaker 3, since we are going to make some End-Use holder for a

spirit bargun, I was told that the Ultimaker was the best 3D printer to go for, so we didnt need to use too much time

on setup.. I had just struggles abit, making the print "perfect"

 

Yesterday i finnally started up to print 6 pcs at the same time, but 30 min into the print, 1 of the units start to 

warp in the corner. 

I then restarted the process and instead of printing 6 i set it to print 3.

It then started again, but this time i noticed that the first layer wasnt really smooth, how can this be? 

I have attached a picture of the layer, the nozzle of the Printer is covered in black filament...

 

I am printing these with Ultimaker PC filament.

Regards Nicolai

    I never use PC myself, but looking at Ultimakers recommendations I would try the adhesion sheets... also you need to use a front cover, and probably also want to use a top cover....

    Adhesion

    Ultimaker PC is not an easy-to-print material because it tends to warp and delaminate if the printing environment and settings are not perfect.

    We strongly recommend using the adhesion sheets to achieve the best build plate adhesion when printing with Ultimaker PC. Alternatively, you can apply a thin layer of glue (included in the accessory box of your Ultimaker) to the glass build plate, but please note that adhesion with glue is less reliable than with adhesion sheets.

      • 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
