Help on this warping


Recommended Posts

Posted · Help on this warping


today I printed a part but got some warping. See here:


As you can see the upper warping is completeley inside the part.

Normally I would expect that edges lift up like the warping in the bottom left corner. The material is PLA Innofil pearl white.

I printed at 230 degree, bed temp. 60 degree. Layer height 0.2 mm, speed 25mm, infill 24%.

The bottom of my part has a thickness of 1mm, the walls 1.6 mm.

So the main part is hollow.

If I use a brim may it helps against the warping at the corner.

But how to get rid of the 'inner' warping?

Should I increase bed temp?

Thanks for any help...

    Maybe you want to check if:

    - The glass of the heated bed is clean (clean it with a dish washer agent or similar...)

    - the glass really lies on the heating pcb/aluminium as many heated beds (UM2 or HBK) suffer from sink bores not deep enough resulting in the glass laying on the screw heads only instead on the aluminium plate

    - a reduction of the fan speed improves the situation

    If you still get it after your bed is cleaned then reorient it to another position on the print bed, print again and check the result. It also would be worth you watching the 1st layer go down and see if you notice anything amiss during layer 1

    thanks for reply, the bed is clean and the aluminium is flat under the glass, I checked.

    I measured also the temeperature on several points of the glass bed it is almost 58-60 degrees.

    I printed again and watched the first layer, but everything fine.

    Would it help to increase the bed temperature? Or maybe start manually with a higher bed temperature for the first layer and reduce it after the first layer with the 'tune' function on the UM2?

    Or ist it better vice versa means start with lower bed temperature and increasing after first layer?

    Or maybee change my model? The bottom is 1 mm thick, infill 24%.

    Would it help to increase the thickness or infill? Or vice versa decrease thickness / infill?

    I just want to know what factors will influence the lifting / warping so I can improve next print.

    Any ideas are welcome,

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
