Ultimaker CPE on S5 5.2.5 stringing and improper infil

Posted · Ultimaker CPE on S5 5.2.5 stringing and improper infil



Here are some results with CPE on a S5; bad stringing or is this usual?


Also it looks like the infil is not fully bridging. 


Any tips would be great.


AA 0.8, BB 0.4

0.2mm layer height, simple profile, 50% infil.

    CPE is always stringing, especially if printed with the 0.8 print core. You can try to turn off combing completely, then you will get a better result. To avoid the strings between the object and the prime tower, you could move the prime tower nearer to your object.


    Printing slower also helps.

    I also did some tests to print cooler but was not successful to avoid stringing, without other side effects. 


    CPE is harder to print than PLA. I try to avoid printing with the 0.8er print core and CPE, I get better results with the 0.4er core.
