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.

      • 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
