Bronze fill


Recommended Posts

Posted · Bronze fill


I have an UM2 and some bronze fill from Colorfabb.

I used Cura to slice a model with the Colorfabb profile (http://learn.colorfabb.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/ultimaker_2_02_bronzefill.rar)

I added a thin layer of glue on the glass and the bronze fill doesn't stick on.

I use brim feature on the last um2 firmware.

I had to abort the print 3 times. I tried with 60°C and 75°C heated bed.

Do you have some advices ?

    first thing anyone will say is re-level the bed.

    bed temp is not the problem, you should be fine at 50c. When you loaded the filament did you create a custom setting for the material with the correct setting for bronzefill?

    temp 220c

    bed 50c

    flow rate 106%

    other than that make sure it's not grinding in the extruder.

    ColorFabb's profile is very conservative, I have done many prints at .06 layer height.

    Grinding usually means the feeder is trying to get the material through faster than the nozzle allows (either because it really is going to fast or you may have a - partial - nozzle block). I would slow down material flow a little bit and see if that solves it without underextruding

    We tried to print a statue of Buddha using Bronze filament, we made the 3D model to be printed with heat bed temperature of 110°C and nozzle temperature at 210°C, found certain issues, like after the certain stage of the print, the object output is not coming like other filament, please find the screenshot for the same and suggest us how to use it and provide a solution and reason for root cause.


    Name of 3D Printer used is Ultimaker2

    Filament Type: ColorFabb (BRONZEFILL) 2.85mm.


    can any one guide me the setting in cura because i am new to this field .

      • 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
