Ultimaker 1, filling not correctly

Posted · Ultimaker 1, filling not correctly

I've just starting to print with my Ultimaker 2.0,

as an upgrade for our Ultimaker 1.0 (Bought at the end of last summer).

So I started printing side by side, when I noticed that the Ultimaker 1 has a terrible filling.

The filling of the Ultimaker 2 is 100% but the Ultimaker 1 is leavings gaps in the print.

What can I do to make the filling of the Ultimaker 1 as good as the one of the Ultimaker 2?

    That does not look like a 100% infill indeed.

    Are you sure your setting is at 100%? looks like 50

    When using cura? it should be on the basic tab -> Fill density (%) 100.

    Otherwise it is under-extrusion, In the bottom of the basic tab, check if flow is at 100% and the diameter around 2.85.

    If that is correct, check/clean your nozzle and feeder.

    Hartelijk bedankt voor je antwoord :)

    Al the settings are correct, just as above.

    It can be the nozzle, I've had a overheating problem a few months ago. (Wiring problem, to much pressure on the cable)

    But the weird part is that if printing at an angle the print will look better than the print of the UM2.

    The machine is further in perfectly working order, this is the only thing that is bothering me.

    I'm currently printing at 230 degrees, so that should be fine.

    Walls are looking great especially when I print the same stl file side by side.

    When printing under an angle the UM1 preforms even better than the UM2.

    Blue pla: UM2

    Grey pla: UM1

    It looks like backlash to me; causing the infill lines to partially overlap, but it's a bit hard to see in the photo with multiple layers of translucent plastic.

      • 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!
          • Thanks

      • 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.
