UltiMaker S7 ABS problem

Posted · UltiMaker S7 ABS problem

Hi, I'm testing the new UltiMaker S7 and I'm having a problem with the ABS not sticking to the build plate. The UltiMaker website says that no glue needs to be applied to the PEI build plate , even when printing ABS. I tried a few variations with Dimafix, which also didn't help, and then with Magigoo Original, also no change. With Magigoo the printing took the longest, but after 2 hours the part still started to peel off. Of course in Cure I have Adhesion marked.

    Hey @Berec_admasys,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉
    Temperatures are super important for ABS so it might just be related to that. 🤔


    Do you have for us:
    A. The brand of ABS you are trying to print 
    B.  Do you have a project file for us? It contains the printer and settings we need for troubleshooting. To save a project file go to File -> Save project.

    I would start off by trying a higher build plate temperature.


    When I print with ABS I usually have the bed at 95-100°C, and I've noticed that it doesn't take much of a decrease in bed temp before the prints start to come off, at least from my experience. I do however print on glass bed with glue stick, but it might be worth a try in any case.

    Ah, I checked the suggested settings for ABS Extrafil Grey, but the temperature range is quite big. I agree with @43915  that you probably need to increase the temperature. 

    If you intend to print with this material a lot it's good to figure out the correct buildplate temperature. 

    This is the test that we do to learn the buildplate temperature.

    1. Print this file UMS7_buildplate_adhesion.3mf
    2. Check the following things

    1. The models' bottom side is flat
    2. There is no elephants foot.
    3. The model comes loose from the build plate after the bed cooled down.

    3. Increase the builplate temperature in case it doesn't stick and is not flat, decrease it if the elephant foot is too big. You can also alter the initial layer speed between 10-30 mm/s if the temperature changes are not helping. 



    Good luck!

    I used ABS from Ultimaker and raised the temperature on the build plate looks like it helped. Thank you for your help 🙂

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
