Ugly layers

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ugly layers

is the machine brand new ?

i find that ultimaker2 sometimes needs to print a little hotter than standard 220 to get good print quality... try 240 for fun and see what happens..

if that doesn't help....it looks like under extrusion... then there could be 2 reasons for this... small parts of your black feeder on the back has broken and fed into the filament... and blocked up the flow... or you have the old white teflon part in the hotend and its warped... but that would only happen after a good bit of printing... not first prints...

if you do decided to have a closer look at your feeder box... be careful when unscrewing it !! or when you loosen the bolts.. it will fall down into the inside of your ultimaker.. not good...

im curious how old your machine is... and if the warmer printer just solves this...

I've had my printer for a couple of months, the black feeder seems to be intact.

How can i check whether i have the teflon part?

I already had to unscrew the feeder once because the grippy thing wasn't attached tight enough, i'm printing at 240 atm, i'll let you know

Update: no ugly layers in the print, altough there are some differant stripes, but i assume those are normal

    • "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.
