Issue with Tough PLA binding up after Firmware update

Posted · Issue with Tough PLA binding up after Firmware update

My first idea is/was that your print core is clogged, but you have already checked that with hot/cold pulls. Another idea is that your front fan is blocked by some debris or not working at all. Check if the fan in the middle of the print head is working when you start your print job. The fan starts automatically when the print core heats up. This fan is needed to cool the upper part of the print core.


Another possibility is that your feeder tension is too high, the marker should be in the middle position. 

Or the feeder is dirty or blocked.


Check also the Bowden tube if you see any debris.


And software wise, it could be that you print too fast or too cold.

    Print core is clean, front fan is fully operating, feeder tensioner is in middle position. Print temp is 200 C and speed is 70mm/s. If any other suggestions ill advise.


    Thank you

        (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.
