Posted · Couple of questions on settings

I am currently working with ABS on the UM2. I have a small issue where on the outside edges of my parts I am getting a small ball of extra plastic. It looks like after a retraction the system overextrudes slightly, causing the extra ball of material. Is there a setting that controls extrusion after retraction? Or does anyone have any other suggestions on minimizing these defects?

The rest of the parts look great, so I don't think I am overextruding...

    Wasn't sure what the "z scar" was so i did some research, you are correct that is what it is. I guess there is no easy way to minimize it since its kind of inherent due to the need for Z to step. I can't use spiralize on most of my prints since I don't typically print single walled items...

      • 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
