Flat surface is now curved... WHY?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Flat surface is now curved... WHY?

I just printed this part in Nlyon, it is supposed to be flat and I'm 100% sure that it was flat while printing. But how come is it all curvy now ?


I submerged the part under water at 50C degrees to remove the support. My bed temperature is at 80 degrees while printing and the print core temperature is 250C degrees.


Is my support too soft ? Did I put my part under water too fast after printing ? Thanks for the help!


I took screen shots of my printing settings and also the slicing.


I'm using Cura 4.8.0 on a Ultimaker Pro Bundle

    Then next time, try water that is just 30 degrees.


    You can cut off a piece of filament and submerge it in the warm water. If it becomes malleable in the warm water, then so will your print.

        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.
