Extrusion issue TPU 95A with Anycubic i3 Mega

Recommended Posts

Posted · Extrusion issue TPU 95A with Anycubic i3 Mega

Hi, I tried for the first time today to print TPU, but i got an issue. 

The filament extrusion isn't constant. It print sometimes just few drops then continue normally, and then some other drops, etc. Most of the time, it just print tiny drops instead of a continuous line.

My filament is new, I opened it this morning and it was sealed. I already print ABS, PETG and ABS, and everything was fine. I changed my nozzle and changed several time my temperature (from 200°C to 250°C by increment of 10°C), but doesn't solve my issue. I  also print at 20mm/s and i use Cura

I use an Anycubic i3 mega. 

Heres the link for my filament: https://www.amazon.ca/-/fr/SainSmart-Filament-flexible-pour-imprimante/dp/B00TI3JUTM/ref=sr_1_1?__mk_fr_CA=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&keywords=SainSmart+TPU&qid=1578253531&s=hi&sr=8-1

Mod I installed: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2672773


Any help is appreciate thank you!

    I get the same, or worse, on my um3.

    I am also very new to TPE but so far only thing I can do to prevent this is cleaning the nozzle before each print.762034080_IMG_20200103_468572.jpg.b2809eb81fd5e457bf84f96f0b08531d.jpg

      • 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
