UM2 Default Material feed percentage

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2 Default Material feed percentage

Was trolling through the "Tune" options during a print and noticed that the "Material Feed" percentage was defaulting to 107%.

Has anyone else ever seen this with a new machine? I upgraded the firmware immediately after setting up the printer.

Nice to know. When I first started printing with ABS I thought I was getting over-extrusion on the first few layers as the print head.seemed to be ploughing through ridges of material from adjacent passes. Went away after a few layers so could have just been my build platform being a calibrated a little too close.

Going to run Triffid Hunters calibration tests to see how my printer fares in stock settings. Am getting some pillowing on the top most layers when I printed Coffins Cube so need to look at the fan settings and experiment with temperature. In general, I feel I am getting poor bridiging performance so hopefully that will help.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
