Posted · TPU 95A oozing every layer while existing for head swap

I am printing some TPU parts and i could not figure out how to prevent oozing. 


Part picture is shown


Print temp : 220 C 

Speed : 30 mm/s 

Fan Speed 100% 

Nozzle is 0.8 

Layer Height : 0.2mm 

I tried to lower temp but it did not help. 

Speed I dont want to reduce then recommended as there lots of comopnents i have to print.

    I think the Ultimaker S3 is also using the same feeder type as the S5 so because of the bowden tube behind the feeder the filament gets pressed in (its elastic) and since the nozzle stays hot the filament will ooze out.


    Best to get rid of this is adding some extra retraction at a layer change, an other solution is making a prime tower so the ooze gets stuck on the prime tower and not on your print.

    Hi @jvaria,


    TPU (95A) is prone to attract water moisture direct from the air, so when the filament is affected, oozing will increase due to expanding "water vapor pressure" when filament enter the hot extruder. 


    However, this is discussed some in here and here is a link about this problem and suggestion to improvement:



    Good luck.

      • 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
