Hi everyone,

finished ultimaker yesterday around 2:00 and and also started with my first print. Everything looked good ( first run without pla to check movement etc. )

After i inserted the PLA string the issues started, first there was no PLA extruded so i thought i need to tight up something on the feeder site, then i noticed

that the bold is eating the PLA string and get stucked, was searching alot on the net, found also this thread :

http://groups.google.com/group/ultimake ... 5bae50b9ec

but it seems like i have some other issues. (also tried to push the temp to 225C° with no success)

then i removed the presure on the feeder and tried to print a model by pushing the PLA by hand:

think it looks quite good for a "hand feeded" print ;)

what i noticed by this try was that i need only a very small amount of PLA so maybe only some mm / 1-2 cm of the string. But my extruder motor is spinning

like it needs to push 100 times more. Thats seems also the reason why it eats the string. (push alot more then can be extruded and eat up the string this way)

so now i'm wondering what could be the issue that the extruder motor is spining so much / fast.

Firmware: Marlin RC1

Software: netfaab (newest verion from 23/04/2012)

thanks in advanced for any help!

      • 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
