Problem with TPU

Hi everyone! I have some problems to print with TPU95A, I try literally everything but it seems nothing change. 

I would like to obtain a simple parallelepiped scaffold (dimension: X=10mm; Y=10mm and Z=2mm) but the last layers printed are not perfect as if there isn't a good connection. 

I have changed a lot of parameters, read all forums and topics but nothing.

The principal problem seems to be the non-adhesion between the last layers, as you can see in the pictures.

There are some parameters that I use/used:

Layer height: 0.1 but also try with 0.2 and 0.05;

Line width: 0.35/0.27;

Infill line: 1 mm;

Pattern: grid;

Temperature: 230° C (also 235 and 240);

Speed rate: 11 mm/s;

Build plate temperature: 60° (also try with cold plate and 70°);

Flow: 100% (try with 120%);

I also have modified some parameters for extrusion (also try without it) but nothing works. In addition a put some stick on the plate to have a good adhesion.

Any suggestions?

      • 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
