Brand new S3 printing issues...


Recommended Posts

Posted · Brand new S3 printing issues...

I have a brand new S3, not even a week old. Using the included materials, i.e. Tough PLA, and default settings within Cura, please see the attached and let me know what is wrong with the printer? The "blobs" in the first image appear on the back, i.e. towards the rear of the printer. In the second image the "waves" appear towards the front. This is what I was printing: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:398548

Thank you!

    Printing slow solves most issues, so select carefully the profile in Cura, a fast or draft profile is often not the best choice.


    Which profile did you use?

    I used the default profile, just trying to test the printer out, and left everything at the default settings in Cura.


    Oh, OK I see, default, but 0.2mm which looks like fast, I get it now... I didn't notice the custom options.

      • 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.

      • 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
