UM-S5 ABS Printing / Chipped glass / elephant's foot

Posted · UM-S5 ABS Printing / Chipped glass / elephant's foot

I decided to print ABS (UM brand) with my S5+Air Manager for the first time and a 0.8mm AA core - Long story short, I was unable to get the parts to come off.

I woke up to a cooled off print surface. When the prints finally came off, despite being careful, they took large layers of glass with them.

 

I have been using Magigoo PA for everything and I used it with the ABS thinking that I would need all the help I can get. I think that doing that in combination with the printing temps (more on that ) contributed to the issue. The temperatures are based on the NFC profile and the air manager was set to keep the print volume at 35C.

 

These print had the first layer spread out creating an elephants foot effect.

needless to say, I tried to make other smaller prints with PVA this time and still had the elephants foot. However they were easier to remove.

 

I have been tweaking settings and have been able to get rid of the elephants foot just by decreasing the build plate temp to 70C. I train of thought is that if I have an enclosure, the trapped hot air (temp being contained) will help prevent warping and hence I do not need such hot build plate. 

 

I will post another screenshot of the tweaked settings for your guys info on what seems to be working at the moment.

      • 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
