Ultimaker 2 over extrusion

Recommended Posts

so when i print with my um2 it seems to slow down momentarily then spew out more plastic than normal.it causes bulges and unevenness any tip? also the plastic beads up and looks like little drip marks instead of one solid line. the extruder is not clicking or skipping.

the drip in stead of a 'noodle' can often be either the start of a blockage and/or a dirty end of nozzle - I always give mine a wipe when it is hot and then run a bit through - sometimes the noodles shoots off sideways so I wipe it a bit more until I get a nice straight down noodle.

warning - nozzle is hot :)

always worth doing the gr5 nuclear clean!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
