What could be wrong there?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · What could be wrong there?

Good evening,


I started a new print.
Everything went Well.
PLA, 215°, 0.15mm and 33% fillin + support
This is a standard  Exiii/e-nable Robotic arm piece and I have no doubt that the stl is OK.

As you can see on the 2 latests pictures, most of the print is very nice and fine.
At some point only one small part of the print has started to be degraded.


I don't think it's an issue with the temperature, nor the general parameters of the print, or the full part will not be OK.
I can't see any parallelism issue on the printer itself ; I can uselly print properly in that printer area.

I'm wondering if anyone have this this already?

    I might be wrong. I now have a difference while printing an3DBenchy.
    On left the result while the nose of the boat is turned left. On the right, when it is turned right.
    So :
    -Check parallelism
    -Clean the nose of the head


    hope it's fine now. I'll let you know.

    fan.  It matters where the fan is.  It matters where the fan is blowing when the nozzle is printing the rest of benchy other than the bow.


    If the fan is on the left side of the head only, or right side, etc it all matters and that is what causes one orientation to be good and another to be bad.


    Also the position of the part on the bed - if the part is near an edge of the print bed and if it is a heated bed then that can make a difference.


    I guess I could say "air temperature and air speed" is what the issue is.  Or how well the previous layer cooled down before printing the next layer.  But usually it's just "fan" asymmetries.

    Thks for your replay gr5.
    I can confirm that I still have the issue after the tiny changes I made.


    I'm double checking what could be possible in term of fans for this printer brand.

    Best regards

      • 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
