Brim is full of blobs


Recommended Posts

Posted · Brim is full of blobs

I have a Voxelab Aquila printer and I have been using the Cura program to slice and create my files.  My first few prints were great and didn't need supports.  Decided to print a dice tower that needed supports but they were too thin to adhere to the print bed so the print was bound to fail.  I decided to add a brim to help the thinner supports stay on the print bed but the brim is coming out in blobs and causes the nozzle to hit the bumpy areas and lift off the bed.  I've checked the level of my bed numerous times but I'm still having issues.  Is there a setting I need to change that I don't know about cause I'm a newbie?

    Under quality there is a "Skirt/brim line width" check to see what that setting is as I maybe wider then your nozzle width.

    Also there is a "initial Layer Line Width" which is a percentage.

      • 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
