I'm really puzzled


Recommended Posts

Posted · I'm really puzzled

I printed a solid 100mm by 5mm disc.  Didn't want any infill, so I set the wall layers to prevent infill.

It printed the outer section first, which makes sense I guess, then the inside.

But the end result was not what I expected.  See picture.

It's very "shaggy"

What's happening here?


Extrusion was just calibrated to this roll and print temperature, and speed.

    "Looks ok so far." - Said the guy that jumped off the skyscraper as he passed the 10th floor.


    This is the back side of the print from your image.  Something is going on because nothing is welded together.  It's just a bunch of lines.  It's really easy to see the layer below the top layer.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "Back side", this is the top (last layers printed)


    The fuzzy looking parts around the perimeter are excess filament pushed over the cliff.

    There's also the spiral pattern which I didn't expect.

    The disk is slightly over thick at 5.12 mm.


    This is not anything I've hit before.


    Snapmaker A350, ABS, 245/95  Filament is in a 55C drybox and then passed through a 90C inline dryer, and the whole path is enclosed in PTFE tube.

    Not back side, the top edge of your photo.

    Without a file or something to look at (other than a photo) it would just be guessing.

      • 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
