Adhesion Problems... I think?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Adhesion Problems... I think?

Hello everyone,


I recently gained access to a Ultimaker S5 here at my work and have been playing around with it a bit. I've been able to print a few small there here and there with no problem, but any time I've tried to print something a little larger, it fails on the first layer. 


I've switched materials and it prints fine, though.


I think this is an adhesion problem, but I'm not 100% sure. I've played around with some of the settings, but nothing I've done has worked yet.


Does anyone have any suggestions, tips, or tricks? I'm at a loss here.


Attached picture is my most recent failed print and is representative of how every "large" print I've tried to make with this material ends up.


Filament being used is Polymaker's Polyterra 2.85mm PLA.

      • 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!

      • 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.
