Hi,

This is my first post with Ultimaker.

I am fairly new to the 3d printing world. In Janurary this year I got my Ultimaker 2. I have printed quite a few things over the past few months, learning as I go.

But I am having a huge problem with one part that I am trying to print. I have failed at least 6 times. And I need some advice.

The file I am trying to print is this:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zsn96gard590bvq/skirt.stl?dl=0

And everytime I try to print, I get this:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/jk7f4eca2u3c308/2015-03-19%2008.48.20.jpg?dl=0

I am using mostly default settings, except the layer height is 0.06mm, and speed is 30mm/s.

If I print without supports, I get that result everytime.

If I add supports, it fails even quicker.

I have also tried glue from the glue stick, as well as hairspray, same issue.

Any suggestions?

    So the bottom part (the part that prints ok) is that still firmly attached to the buildplate at the time you discover the fail?

    It looks like a classic example of print becoming loose and being shifted around on the plate, hence newly extruded plastic has nothing to bond to and just becomes the spaghetti you show in the picture...

    Is your heatbed on?

    As Tommy said. Try to print with a Brim so that the piece stays in place.
