Help! Consistently uneven prints!


Recommended Posts

Posted · Help! Consistently uneven prints!

I'm a teacher who is trying to fix the 3D printer at school. We have a Creality 10S and are using Cura software with PLA filament. On the right and back of the prints it is like the bed isn't level, but it clearly isn't because the front and left of the square prints fine on the right-back corner of the print bed. Every square comes out the same regardless of where it is printed on the bed.

    Looks like it's underextruding 2 of the sides only.  I don't understand why it's concentric squares - that's not a typicall bottom layer.


    Anyway my guess is printing speed - I bet it is slowing down more at the junction of good and sides of the square and the slowdown allows pressure to build back up in the nozzle.  Try printing at half the current speed - at least for the bottom layer.


    That should make it print more consistently.

      • 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
