One At A Time Delay Oozing


Recommended Posts

Posted · One At A Time Delay Oozing

Specifically printing TPU with stock profiles. I get much better quality (less stringing) when I print one at a time but when one part is done the printer will delay for a considerable time while heavily oozing, then it starts printing into the ooze which leads to a very bad print. Is there anything that can be done to prevent this? 

Here is a video showing the issues:

    I was wondering if anyone has any updates on this, its really frustrating. I was advised by my reseller (who also confirmed the issue on their end) to just use Cura 3.4, but I have to say I'm not very satisfied with that answer. I was going to post on Github but I think someone else already has and its been deferred by the Ultimaker team?

    I have a workaround for this that seems to work fine for my uses. I just set the "Initial Layer Temperature" to match the "Printing Temperature" before slicing in Cura. This prevents the delay while the extruder heats back up in between parts and it doesn't seem to have any negative effects on plate adhesion for my parts.
