Layer adhesion issues

by CBocka

Hello Everyone,
So i recently started having this problem with my UMO+ and I've tried everything. The issue is my layer adhesion in the infill layers. The top and bottom layers are turning out perfect but once it starts printing the infill layers they just dont adhere to eachother. I've tried adjusting flow rate, feed rate, layer height, higher nozzle temps, but I'm stuck. The issue seems to be getting worse too, the parts I am printing are so weak in the center that the last one actually pulled in half when i was removing it from the print bed, and I was using very little force. I am having this problem with both PLA and CPE.

Bed raising beyond end of screw

by juntti99

I'm trying to diagnose an issue where the bed of an UM2+ tries to raise the bed beyond the end of the Z screw resulting in a severely unpleasant noise and inability to print. I'm leaning towards this being an issue with the firmware as i have checked the Z-end stop and the printer being placed together with two UM2 extended printers flashing the wrong firmware feels like a easy mistake to make. (Though i don' t know if there are checks in place to prevent this mistake.)I wanted to get a second opinion however and see if anyone had experienced this issue before? I also haven' t found any mention of this issue googling which has me stumped.

Any help is welcome. Thanks in advance.

Repair recommendations?

by FuzzySadist

Hi everyone, I have a basic Ultimaker 2, had it for a few years... a few months ago, it started binding when it tried to start up... I'm not confident enough to pull it apart and try to figure out the mechanics (which is why I bought a prebuilt in the first place)... any recommendation of repair services? I live in Washington state... any help figuring out how to fix my very expensive paperweight would be much appreciated :)

Add:North PETG

by emce

Does anyone have experience with Add:North PETG printing on UM3? I am getting a lot of "boogers" when the printer goes from printing a flat surface to an extruding small object. I have tried to increse the retraction with out any succsess. If i print with lower temperature the problem decreases but then the layer addheason becomes poor.
