Ripping/shredding on surface?

It kinda looks to me like it's not sticking quite right on that spot so it's lifting up. If you look at the bottom of the print when you remove it, is there an indentation there? If so, make sure your glass is really clean and consider adding a thin layer of glue to help with sticking. Also make sure you print the first layer quite slow.

    Glue was added, glass was perfectly clean. I used the standard HQ settings in Cura (0.06 layer but everything else was untouched). It'll be done in three hours or so.

    (Tack för tipsen!)

    Hi Kenneth, welcome!

    Yes, usually the problem will sort itself out. It's also possible that you might have the head a touch too close, and be getting some back pressure build up that squirts out in a blob and doesn't stick very well. A video of the first layer going down might be helpful for diagnosis.

    Had that very very very occasionally, including today but as Kenneth says it is normally cleared after a few layers. Never spent any time trying to understand it and always just assumed it was "dirt" on the bed and take it as a sign to clean the bed :)

    What's your bed temp?

    Good point gr5. I ended having to turn mine down to reduce the "bell" effect on the bottom layers (per another thread). I didn't even consider that these two effects might be related to the same problem (too high default bed temp).

      • 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
