Print says out of material when not so

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print says out of material when not so

Has anyone ever seen anything like this? The filament stops extruding and the printer says it is out of material -- when it's not. It appears that what is happening is that the inside of the filament melts, and the shiny outside layer builds up in the nozzle, but does not melt, and then the the filament can no longer be pushed through the nozzle. See image. It clears when you unload the filament. Any suggestions on how to remedy? This is a third part filament PLA from Printed Solid. Nozzle temp is 200.

    Was having this trouble also. Mine appeared to be from filament grinding in the back of the printer. After getting the error I upped my temperature by 15% and lowered my speed by 15% and have not had a problem since.

    The filament run out does not always mean that its run out, it also picks up and gives a error if the right amount of filament if not moving via the feeder. This can be down to a blocked nozzle, drag on the spool, bad filament.


    So a few things to try are like @willryan3 as said already, try to print as a higher temp, go up in 5c steps to about 215c as normal PLA should not really need to be any higher than that.


    Clean the print cores, check the 3rd party spool is moving free on the spool holder with no drag, check out the feeders incase you got bits of filament in there.

      • 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.
