Benchy issues and solutions?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Benchy issues and solutions?

I just got an ender 3 pro for my first printer! I have been looking and trying out settings and  I tried a recommendation from a YouTube channel and it didn’t go so hot. It was a super fine layer print with 100% infill. It is hatchbox pls at 200 degrees and got this result. The top didn’t even print and ended up air printing...

    I am by no means a benchy-expert.


    The stringing suggests to me you are printing too hot. Try 5 degrees colder. You could also try adjusting retraction settings. There seems to be quite some ringing, which you could try solving by printing a bit slower.


    100% infill has challenges of its own. If the material is not perfectly the 1.75mm it is supposed to be, 100% infill can cause overextrusion and partial clogs. If you want the model "solid", try 80% infill instead. But also try with 20% infill.


    Finally, don't start with "super fine". First learn stand, then learn fly. Nature rule, Daniel-san, not mine

        (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
