Bumps and popping on first layer?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Bumps and popping on first layer?

Hi guys, been trying to figure out what is going on with my printer, during only the first layer in having these popping sounds and what looks like overextrusion. Im printing on glass that is almost perfectly leveled with a BLTouch so that compensates even more. This only happens on the first layer and the rest is fine. I have tried;

Ajusting Z offset for different squishes

drying my filament in the oven

different nozzles

every axis belt is tight, no wobble.


Any ideas? It almost looks like pressure is being built up from overextrusion but im not entirely sure. it only happens in certain straight line runs, and tohers look perfectly fine.

    I agree with smartavionics.  If you can manual level then that is best.  Turn the leveling screws so the nozzle is about 0.1mm farther from the print bed than it was when you did this print in the photo.

        (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
