Hi!

After removing my ~15h print i discoverd something shocking.

There was some glass broken off and sticking under the print. I think the Pictures says all.

It was my first large ABS print. buildplate Temp was 100°C until 30mm print height where i turned it down to 70°C. I did use some print stick (the original witch is delivered with the UM2).

I thought it would be no problem to heat the glass up to 100°C?

Maybe a material failure of the glass?

I can use the other side of the glass now, but if this happen again i got a problem :eek:

Cheers

Jonas

    Man... that is bad :(

    Hope you can get a replacement or something, this stuff shouldn't happen....

    For future reference, have you tried just leaving the print on the plate for a while until it cools off?

    The print should pop right off the plate by itself as it cools, so you won't have to pry it off and risk damaging the glass...

    Forget to mention that the print cooled off for about 40 minutes. I could remove it easy by hand. I heard some noises while it did cool off, but since the printer is in another room i am not sure it was the glass or the neighbors.

    thats really crazy... i only saw this happen kinda once before... so it appears to be very rare... maybe just a bad one in the batch ?

    I would recommend you contact sales about this and explain what has happened.

    Ian :-)

    I also managed to get a very little part of the glass plate come off.

    This happened because the print was really stuck to the bed and i had to pull it off with a lot of force. Main cause for me was not letting the print cool down enough. I now have no trouble as i wait enough the print just pops off the plate.

    I now use the other side of the plate

    My guess is that high temp for the buildplate can make the print stick to much and that using some tools to take the print off may damage the print. I never printed in ABS maybe it needs more cooling?

    yep on your plate you can even see the lines that picket up the surface from the glass. Looks like on some glass plates the surface from the glass does not stick that well to the rest as on others. If so its a quality problem from the glass supplier.

    Robert is just looking for more excuses to use his fancy flashlight!

    You should be able to just flip it over and in the meantime ask Ultimaker for a replacement and consider getting some glass from a local glass shop. It will probably cost you very little.

      • 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 5.3.0-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.
