Under Extrusion? I think? Help!

Posted · Under Extrusion? I think? Help!

Hello,

I have been printing some larger prints lately on my Ultimaker 2 and I am now starting to get little pin holes on the side of the prints???

I have no idea what it is from, I thought the Temp was to high so I brought it down, didnt work so I brought it up and that didnt either.

I use PLA ColorFabb Print at about 30mm/s on .1mm height with a temp of 230 normally.

I usually get perfect prints, I also tried cleaning the nozzle with a wire and didnt work.

Heres a Picture of what it looks like:

Thank you,

Joseph

    Looks like under-extrusion indeed.

    You say you tried cleaning the nozzle with a wire what do you mean?

    Did you try the atomic method:

    You can also test your extrusion with the cylinder test:

    There are multiple factors that can cause under-extrusion more info here:

    This is the simplest test for underextrusion. Give it a shot. Make sure to do the test at 230C so that it is valid:

    Put your spool of filament on the floor so it doesn't enter the feeder at an angle.

    I'm not 100% sure that is underextrusion but it looks like it. It wasn't *any* worse at colder temps?

        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.
