No Extrusion at all


Recommended Posts

Posted · No Extrusion at all

Hi guys. Iam having a problem with my ultimaker original, no material is coming out of either of the extruders at all.

 

  • Both the extruder wheels are turning and I have seen bite marks on the PLA.
  • Both the extruders are getting up to temp
  • The bed is level
  • Both extruders are level

 

Does mean that something is assembled wrong in the hot ends? Do you have tips on what to look for?

Update: I did get a bit of plastic out of extruder one but that is all. It wasn't enough to print it and now there is none again

    is there a nice strand of plastic coming out if you turn the extruder wheel by hand before starting a print?

    if not: than you have a blockage somewhere. You can try to poke in the nozzle with a thin strand of metal wire (from a metal brush). If that doesn't help the problem could be higher up.

      • 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
