Eel Conductive Filament Under Extrusion Problem on UMS5


Recommended Posts

Posted · Eel Conductive Filament Under Extrusion Problem on UMS5

I am trying to print using Ninja Tek's Eel conductive filament. However using their recommended specifications all the prints I have tried have failed. After messing with the settings I was able to get a print to kind of work at 245 C, but there is still a lot of under extrusion. I have also observed that there seems to be tears in the filament where the drive grips the filament. Is there a way to prevent this tearing? And does anyone know a way to fix this under extrusion problem for Eel filament on the UMS5? I have attached a picture of how the filament looks when it  tears and a part that is under extruded.

    Had the same problem with Proto Pasta  on Um3 and fixed it. 
    The problem is, that the UM print cores have a 3 times thinner heat block then E3D Hotends. You either need to print MUCH slower, or print even hotter.  Try printing with 10mm/s. If that fixes it, you know what to tweak.

    Filled Filaments appear to need longer to heat up. So you cant feed the hotend as much as with standard materials

      • 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
