Problems with printing stuff on Creality CR-10s


Recommended Posts

Posted · Problems with printing stuff on Creality CR-10s

Hello everyone, 

I am new to 3d printing world and recently I assembled Creality cr-10s.

After a day of setting it up and adjusting bed and all those stuff I started my first print,

Found some small robot that was recommended in one of the videos I watched.

It takes approximately 20 minutes to print with my setup (posted in 3 pictures in the attachment).

First one printed legs and then for some weird reason it started retracting plastic from the nozzle and

pushing it backwards. I noticed that on one sport too much filament was ejected and that's probably the reason

it retracted plastic and continued to print in the air without any plastic.

Ive tried with different model as well but it happened even earlier (all 3 attempts in picture in the att., one almost finished but it stopped working at the very end).

My friend that uses same 3d printer for some time said he had a similar problem and that it was plastic quality issue,

he went to the store bought new plastic and it worked fine for him. Im using plastic that came with the printer.

Since I don't have any extra funds atm Im wondering if its really a plastic problem and can it be fixed somehow without using new/better plastic?

Current plastic Im using is 1.75mm PLA that says CCTREE gift on it.

      • 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
