Manufacturing Part - Layer quality issues - PC

Posted · Manufacturing Part - Layer quality issues - PC

Hey UM Team,

 

I have a help request that I cant seem to get corrected. 

Recently when I try to print a part ( Cam - part for a manufacturing operation ) that I had previously printed successfully I get a grooves on my layers.

Picture 1 shows the issue during print.

Picture 2 shows a comparison of the same model printed previously with success.

Picture 3 shows the part that was printing together with the failed part (You can see it in the back of the first picture). This part had no issues like the one Im having issues with. 

Picture 4 is a close up of the failure.

 

This is very problematic due to the needed precision from this part as a cam follower goes around it and these grooves create vibration, wear and ultimately a non acceptable final product.

I have attempted to print this once more time since with a different orientation and had the same result. 

 

I am using Ultimaker 3 default PC settings ( Speed toned down to 30 and in-fill to 95% ). I am also using breakaway material for support. 

 

Please let me know if you guys have suggestions. I appreciate the help.

      • 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
