Few problems

Recommended Posts

So a week ago we got the Ultimaker 2. Printed a few things and no problem. Now go to print stuff and the PLA sticks to the nozzle and not the plate. Also our printer doesn't sit level. None of the legs are damage. Bad build, I guess.

I've re-leveled the build plate and no luck.

Please help.

Hi Welcome to the forum.

Clean the glass with alcohol to make sure there are no greasy fingerprints on it and try again.

Are you using ultimaker Pla?

Are you using the glue Stick?

What temperatures are you printing With?

Also curling around the nozzle can result from a blockage in the nozzle, needing an atomic pull to clear. If you manually extrude filament, does it flow out from the nozzle absolutely perpendicularly? If yes then probably not your problem but if no then probably is your problem.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
