Filament Does Not Stick when Printing Specific Model


Recommended Posts

Posted · Filament Does Not Stick when Printing Specific Model

I'm having an issue with the filament sliding along with the nozzle while printing a specific stl file (attached).

This doesn't happen with any other 3D model I've printed.


I suspect there is something wrong with the slicing process.

    Thanks for the file. Looking at the layer view, the first thing that strikes me is that the model isn't flat on the build plate because you can see there is a wedge of support under part of the model. That can't be helping the adhesion.


    Secondly, it's still printing the first layer at 25 mm/S which doesn't sound very fast but given that the model has some fairly sharp bends in the walls is probably too fast. I would try 15 mm/S or even 10 for the first layer speed.


    Thirdly, it's worth enabling the optimize wall printing order setting.


    Fourthly, you may want to use a thicker layer for the first layer as that can also help adhesion.


    Hope this helps!

      • 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
