Strange Ringing Issue


Recommended Posts

Posted · Strange Ringing Issue


I'm new to this forum and look forward to be part of this community.


I'm having a weird printing issue that I'm not how to describe.

It looks like a ringing problem, but also not...

When there is a feature on the wall of a print it seems to translate to artifacts elsewhere on the print but on the same layers.

In the pic attached, the artifact to the left (circled) is due to a blind hole on the other side of the part. The other walls of the print looks nice and smooth (but there is no features on those walls).

I had true ghosting issues before and it's now much better after putting the printer on some hard foam.

I did a cube print just before this one with only 1 shell layer and hollow inside when I calibrated my extruder (thought that might be the issue) but it printed perfectly.


I'm using Cura 3.6.0.

Print speed was 60mm/s with outer perimeter at 40mm/s.

Printed with PLA.


I made sure all the belts are tensioned and the bearings are good.


Any suggestions would be most welcome.

        (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.
