brittle printout

Posted · brittle printout

I use default setting in cura 4.4.1 and get brittle printout.  I tried to increase printing temperature between 210 to 230 but still get the same result.  Any one can give me some advice to solve it.

    This is severe underextrusion.  This is less than 50% extrusion.  So you get droplets of filament coming out of the nozzle followed by an air gap and then the next "post" grabs the next droplet.


    I'm going to guess the problem is that cura thinks you have 3mm filament when in reality you are using 1.75mm filament.  Are you using a 1.75mm filament printer?

    I don't know - look at the settings in Cura - try to find out how the filament diameter is set.  I did this once and it took me an hour I think.  It was confusing.  I had to change it in 2 places - both in the materials (the materials have a diameter) and in the printer settings.  I may have done more work than necessary.


    Once I understood that it was critical to fix this in Materials it didn't take long.  I then just had to find a way to get cura to accept the material for my printer.

      • 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
