    I'm surprised they are brittle.  I would lower the fan.  Listen to it and make sure it sounds like 1/4 as loud.  It also helps to enclose the machine but lowering the fan should be enough.

     

    Usually when I use .25 or .15 nozzle I am printing very small things so I also print multiple objects to give one time to cool down (while the other is printing).  But with nGen you don't need so much cooling so I suggest you just lower the fan quite a bit.

    Yeah, I also find nGen quite brittle using the 0.25 nozzle. I would probably increase the temp a bit, Turn off Z-Hop and avoid printed parts when travelling to reduce travel times and keep heat on the part. nGen doesn't really have the best bond to itself which means that the strength between each wall and layer is not hugely strong. Using a 0.25mm nozzle means you have even less strength cos the print lines are so small. 

    Keeping the part as warm as possible without affecting your print quality is the best solution. So maybe up the temp and play with retraction, travels and combing to reduce oozing.

      • 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
