PCL (Polycaprolacton) with UMS5

Recommended Posts

Posted · PCL (Polycaprolacton) with UMS5


we were trying to print small (approx 2cm) scaffolds with PCL and used extruder 2 and PVA as support. You can see our models printed with PLA below.

The printing temperature was set in Cura as 110°C and we added M302 to the gcode after each T0. Still the PCL didn't really came out of the extruder (just small dots).

Do you have any recommendations how to print PCL with the Ultimaker S5?


Thanks in advance!

Hi there!


Which PCL are you using? Please consider there are several not pure PCL or direclty not PCL but labeled as such out there in the market.

In any case, if you are using ElogioAM Ortho or PCL100 then I recomend to check this post for suggestion on printing settings.

I hope that helps.
