Extrusion Suddenly changes from smooth to Blobs at random Layer heights CURA5.2.1

Posted · Extrusion Suddenly changes from smooth to Blobs at random Layer heights CURA5.2.1

Been facing intermittent this issue For a while in Some files Cura simply decides to change from extruding smooth continuous lines to a bunch of blobs winch ruin the print quality the worse part is that it happens at random layer heights with random Files but mostly on round objects already tried doing a full printer maintenance routine (leveling, adjusting belts an rollers, tightening bolts...) sometimes i get a perfect gcode sometimes a disaster of a print and sometimes something in between that's useful. to me it Doesn't seem to be printer related since with other models it prints absolutely amazing. just happens randomly

    Does it happen with the same gcode file at different layer heights each time you try? Then it really does sound like a printer issue.

      • 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
