Woke up to this today


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Woke up to this today


There are scratches everywhere but I am mostly worried about getting rid of that blob of PLA. I tried heating the printcore up to 210C for 10 minutes but to no avail. 

Any ideas of how to get rid of it without damaging any vital parts?

    If just heating up the core is not enough, try it with a heat gun to carefully soften the filament. I would start at lower temperature and increase it step by step just to that temperature which is working.

    I've used Euro-Claddings Quick Paint Remover to soften up PLA (as a last resort).

    I believe it's banned in the EU. You might try something similar like Bardahl Gasget and Paint Stripper.

    Yes, I suppose that is kinda funny 😛 The stuff works like a charm but I guess it's just a little too aggresive for us overprotected europeans.

    I also cleaned up my core with a heat gun first but couldn't get rid of the burnt bits. This stuff did. 😛

      • 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
