Ultimaker Nylon Getting Stuck at End of Print


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Nylon Getting Stuck at End of Print

I have a problem with Ultimaker Nylon on my S5 w/Material Station where the printer complains about the material getting stuck in the nozzle at the end of the print. The prints are fine. The problem occurs during cool-down when the printer tries to retract the material from the nozzle. The nylon is definitely getting stuck because the gears grind out a chunk of filament. I think it is a temperature issue because when I go through the requested process, the nylon comes out of the nozzle just fine, even though I don't remove the Bowden tubes or anything; I just confirm I've done everything as asked even though I didn't actually do anything. I have had this happen a time or two in the past with other materials, but it is consistent with the nylon. I am going to increase the standby temperature just in case that helps.

    I have the same issue with NylonX, I was wondering what setting to change in order to tell the printer to heat up the print head before trying to unload the filament. Because currently the base Generic CFF PA profile is not doing that properly which causes the filament to not unload properly. This becomes a real issue when doing large 4-6 day prints that use 2-3 spools of filament, the material station can not unload and reload properly so the print has to pause until you manually run the wizard to unload the filament.

    Increase the standby temperature. The problem is that the filament cools down to much. Increasing the standby temperature eliminates the problem.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
