Filament flow through print core

Posted · Filament flow through print core

Recently, the S5 has been having a strange issue where the material just doesn't want to come out of the core. I can load the material, the nfc recognizes it, and at the end of load a nice clean string is extruded. But, when I go to print, nothing comes out? I have to manually, give the filament a little push for the extrusion to start? This never happened before?

    I always cut the end of my filament to a point before inserting.  This helps greatly.

     

    I'm guessing the teflon in your core got worn out a bit.  Not a big deal if it's only a problem on loading.

     

    This is one possibility.  There are many other possibilities but from what you describe - that's most likely.  You could try using a different core to verify if you might want to throw that one out and get a new one.

      • 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
