    Hello 3d fails!


    Those little dots are what the community likes to call “zits”. They are caused when the extruder “frequently starts and stops” while a print is taking place.


    The simplest ways to fix the problem are by enabling coasting, and/or adding your retraction settings in the slicer. A good place to start with your retraction distance is 5mm. If there are still some dots, increase the distance by 0.5-1mm increments, if stringing is prevalent, go ahead by decreasing it with 0.5-1mm increments.


    Please let me know if you have any questions!

      • 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.
