UMO+ Advise on improving printing quality

Recommended Posts

Posted · UMO+ Advise on improving printing quality



I've just assembled my first 3D printer, an Ultimaker Original+.

I've already read a lot about fixing printing problems/improving quality but to be honest I'm a little bit lost.

What I did so far was adjusting the x and y steps after printing the XYZ cube. X and Y were a little bit too small so I adjuested the steps and know the cube is a "real" cube.


But I don't know where to start with other settings. Maybe someone can help me here to identify the problems? Or tell if it's already a good print from an UMO+.


I will be thankful for every help! 🙂


Best regards,

    I would say it is not so bad, some minor issues but overall a good print.

    Try to print a little bit cooler and slower. Not sure, but when looking at the surface I would say you print too hot. Then I see some ringing, which should be better when printing slower.

    Thank you for your feedback. I printed the benchy with 200°, 60° bed and 60mm/s with Innofil PLA. I will try print another one with 20 or 30mm/s and another one with 190° or maybe even 180°.

      • 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
