Bed Adhesion with S5 Pro and Ultimaker Nylon


Recommended Posts

Posted · Bed Adhesion with S5 Pro and Ultimaker Nylon

I have run a few parts from a few different manufacturers' nylon filaments on both an Ultimaker S5 and an older Fusion3 F410.  Where I have had a few issues with warpage, the primary (and most expensive) issue I have been having is actually from too much bed adhesion.  I have shattered two beds for the Fusion, and pulled chips out of the glass in the Ultimaker about 3 times.  The most recent, I left most settings at default for the Ultimaker nylon with the AA 0.4 core, only increasing the number of walls to 4, infill to 75% and type to gyroid (the part in question is actually a structural component, so I want near-solid without ending up with over-extrusion problems).  A single layer of PVA glue stick on the bed. Part printed great, no warpage, but when I removed the part from the bed the next day (was not held on very tight, putty knife had no issues lifting it) There was a loose glass chip sitting off to one side and I had to try to scrape more of it off of the bottom of the part.  Once there is a chip that can end up under the part, it ends up being progressive, with any extrusion that happens over it taking a little bit more glass with it on removal.  What am I missing that could keep me from needing to replace a bed every few nylon prints?

Thank You,

      • 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
