AquaSys 120 not sticking to Ultimaker PC


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · AquaSys 120 not sticking to Ultimaker PC

Greetings,

 

I am running into an issue with the AquaSys 120 and Ultimaker PC filament, with the support autogenerated by Cura. The AquaSys 120 support filament is not adhering to the Ultimaker PC material at all on the sides of the part. The AquaSys 120 filament is bunching up in chunks. I have attached the Cura project which is the latest attempt with slightly slower print speed, 10% reduction, as recommended when having this type of issue. 

 

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

 

Note:

The brim, composed of the AquaSys 120 looks good, its clear and adheres to the build plate fine

The part made up of the Ultimaker PC looks good, its opaque and adheres to the build plate fine

Since the brim, made up of the AquaSys 120 looks clear, I doesn't appear like its a hydroscopic issue with the AquaSys 120, but I will try drying the Filament after the current print run completes just in case. 

 

Equipment:

Ultimaker S5 Pro Bundle

Ultimaker S5 Firmware 5.8.2.0

AA 0.4 for Ultimaker PC

BB 0.4 for AquaSys 120

 

Software

Cura 4.8.0

AquaSys 120 material plugin version 1.0.6 

 

Settings:

Attempted with: Default Cura Settings for with  0.15mm layer height and 100% fill

Attempted with 10% speed reduction for (45mm /sec PC and 27mm/sec for AquaSys) with  0.15mm layer height and 100% fill

 

Filament:

Ultimaker PC Transparent

AquaSys 120

As Aquasys120 does usually stick pretty well to Ultimaker PC, I think the issues in your case come from the support generated by Cura. They seem to be very small and fragile. I suggest you increase the supports a bit by using the join distance and horizontal expansion options in the support section of Cura.
