Help Tuning CPE Dary Grey on S5


Recommended Posts

Posted · Help Tuning CPE Dary Grey on S5

I've been working with Ultimaker CPE Dark Grey for a few days now and it seems like I'm getting more stringing and 'goobers' than I expected. I'm using the default profile that was set by the NFC chip in the spool. 

I went through a roll of PLA first on the S5 and the print quality was close to perfect.

Since loading up the CPE I keep getting print quality like you see in the image below. I tried dropping the temp by 5 deg or so to see if the stringing was less but can't really perceive a difference. 

Any suggestions are much appreciated.

    Printing CPE is not so easy, I always fight with the surface quality, so I use CPE only when I have to do it.

    But check the setting Combing and turn it off if it is enabled, this helps a lot against stringing.
