Shaking platform

Hi there,

I've got an issue, I hope it is easy to fix.

When printing at the end of the platform, the platform is vibrating quite heavely.

Video can be seen here:

 

You can hear it vibrating and see the wobbly print.

Any suggestions?

    It looks like that's maybe the second layer being put down? Did it vibrate as it was laying down the first layer as well and does it keep vibrating after say 4-5 layers? I'm guessing what you're seeing here is simply that the first layer is a bit rough and as the head is laying down the second layer it's scraping over the high points of the previous layers which is causing the shake.

    Unfortunately the video camera is shaking too much to see the bed shake but I believe you.

    I've seen some bouncing of the bed but it has never been a problem for me. I guess I don't print very often this close to the front edge. Does it affect the shape of the final print? Maybe better to take a photo of the front edge of the print and then another photo of the rear edge.

    This is a new issue you are bringing up. No one else has mentioned it but I suspect it is "normal" for the UM2. Possibly speeding up or slowing down the test head speed will help change the induced vibrations away from the resonant vibration?

    If you have a consistent way to measure your vibrations that I can perform then I can compare my machine to yours.

      • 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.
