First print, no tweaking, barely know what I'm doing.... C'mon that's not bad:

first print montage

Looks worse in the photos. Looks much better in the real world.

Meant to note that the underextrusion on the base was because I didn't "prime" the filament feed.

    I think I had the temp too low. There were some chunks missing on the back. I lower the default to 180 from 210.

    I printed some calibration cubes at 100%, 150% and 200%. Even at 2x they came out OK.

    180C is too cold for that color filament. Unless you slow to maybe 10mm/sec which will take hours to print that robot. Also if it accidentally goes below 170C Marlin doesn't let the extruder move.

    Printing slower will improve quality more than printing colder. 210 is already an excellent temp. But this quality that you show is good enough for me personally.

    Jonathon, that looks real good.

    Gr5, I picked 180 just because that is what I thought was the right temp for PLA. For some reason, I thought 210 was more appropriate for ABS.

    In general, I think pictures make the prints look worse than they are. When the robot was done, I really thought it looked nearly molded.

    No, 240-250 or more is typical for ABS.

    180 is definitely low for PLA - for most things you should be able to print quite nicely in the 210-230 range. For most things it doesn't make much difference, provided the plastic is liquid enough to flow sufficiently fast for the speed and layer height that you are printing.

      • 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
