UMS5 repeatedly telling the filament stopped.. TPU

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · UMS5 repeatedly telling the filament stopped.. TPU

i am having trouble printing material Black Polyflex TPU (raw its matte black, glossy when printed)

standard tpu profile in cura and 0.8 nozzle was used.

printing works totally fine, but the printer keeps complaining about the filament sensor sensing that material isnt moving (even though it actually moves..)
then my UMS5 pauses the print and a very loong oooze forms .. if not removed ruining the print.

i have to remove that ooze and unpause every 5-10 mins and the print get ugly during that anyway..   very annoying. 


does anyone know a fix for this?

    It’s difficult to say why this happens, could be in your printsettings. But if you’re satisfied with the print quality, you may want to switch off the flow sensor in the settings of the printer
