Idle Nozzle Oozing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Idle Nozzle Oozing

I'm using an Ultimaker S5 and I am having difficulty with the idle nozzle oozing when printing with certain materials. I know lowering the standby temperature will address that issue, but on short layers, the idle core never really gets to cool off enough to stop oozing, and even on longer layers, the idle nozzle keeps oozing long enough to be a problem. I am already using a prime tower and I know about ooze shields, but other than the standby temperature, prime tower, and ooze shield, are there any other settings I can adjust to minimize the oozing? Nozzle switch retraction or something? Thanks!
