S5 Heavy Vibration When Using Gyroid Infill


Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 Heavy Vibration When Using Gyroid Infill

Hi All


I've tried using the gyroid infill setting a few times now and each time have experienced an alarming level of vibration at the print head that comes when the infill is being printed. I can't tell if this is due to the slice settings or some kind of mechanical issue e.g the nozzle tip catching against the material, but either way it doesn't seem like it'll be good for the printer over time.


The problem doesn't exist on the first layer, when I've printed an infill-only model, but it always occurs on each infill layer after that. I have attached a video with sound of a part exhibiting this problem, and the Cura project file. Could anyone shed some light on whether this is normal, or what the problem could be?


Many thanks.

    The first layer is almost always printed slower than the rest of the model by default.  Try slowing down the speed of the infill and especially the jerk and travel settings.  I find that many of the default travel and jerk setting in Cura result in rather violent head motions with my UM3 machines.

      • 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
