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

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
