Wriggly walls


Recommended Posts

Posted · Wriggly walls

Hi again. 

 

I'd be very pleased, if you can help me once more. 

Two-three weeks ago my printer startet out of nothing to print the walls quite wriggly (see Image "1").

My Ultimaker 2 has the newest Thinker firmware (V19.03.1) installed.

I've printed PLA with 210° / 60° at standard speed.

Nicolinux had in 2016 a similar Problem, described in the flowing threat:

Because of this, I also tried to switch of the build plate heating. 

When I switched if off, everything was great (see Image "2"):

But without the build plate heating it looses the adhesion. So I tried the PID auto config with 5 iterations. Which gave the following result (see Image "3"):

All the previous prints were printed with 0.2 mm Layer hight.

I then accidentally tried to print one with 0.1 mm Layer hight. Which resulted in a print without any wriggles, even though the print bead heating was activated.  (see Image "4"):

How is this possible? I'm getting wriggy walls when I print with 0.2 mm Layer hight. But with 0.1 mm Layer hight everything is OK. Or when I print with 0.2 mm Layer hight but stop the printing bed heating, also every thing is all right. But the adhesion is very bad. So I need this combination of 0.2 mm Layer hight and printing bed heating. 

 

Thanks for your advice.

    So I finally figured it out. 

    I tried the flowing: 

    • Setting 8/16 Jumer
      • Not influence
    • Loosening the long screws of the printing head
      • improves the print but it has still wriggles
    • Greasing the z-axis
      • no improvement
    • Changing heat bed temperature
      • no improvement
    • Changing extruder temperature
      • improves the print but it has still wriggles
    • Switching of the fan
      • no improvement
    • Auto adjust the PID of the bed and the extruder
      • Even worse wriggles
    • Tring different PID settings
      • The wriggle pattern changed, but no actual improvement

    After many try and error cycles I finally came to step 26... 

     

    The solution was: 

    • Exchanging the temperature sensor, Olsson Block, Noozle and this White thermal piece. 
    • So test 26 was successful:
    • IMG_8394.thumb.JPG.1e5c4c3dc4c828f448367a49d2731542.JPG

    Of all four replaced parts, I think it's just because of the PT100 temperature sensor. As I intended to replace the temperature sensor, it wasn't possible to get it out of the Olsson Block. Therefore I replaced all these different parts.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
