...it's hard to tell what the exact problem is by watching at the photographs... please attach the project-file so we can see you printer and cura settings...


Did you manage to get a good print with one of the other profiles?

    I had the same because of Bowden tube. It swelled due to high temperature.

    It can also be:

    - gap between nozzle and Bowden tube 

    - too much retraction distance

    - nozzle clogged

    Yes, severely under-extruded.

    The Extruder steps/mm may need calibration.

    The printer and/or Cura have been set to Volumetric extrusion.

    As @brtzor says, it could be a problem with the printer.

    Both Mari and I have Ender 3 Pro's.  For myself it was always a blocked bowden tube at the hot end from heat creep.  I finally gave up and went with an all metal hot end.  Not perfect, but it's much much better.

      • 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
