Can you help identify this weird print issue?

Recommended Posts

I recently started printing with colorfabb_xt red and when I ran into this issue I decided to print it in normal colorfabb red. At this point I didn't know what was causing this. I've had my colorfabb settings dialed in for some time so I was surprised to see this in that filament as well.

I don't use tweak at z so and the fan comes on at 1mm (50% for XT and 100% for PLA).

I print the XT at 245 and the PLA at 200.

The place where it start messing up is different for each print.

the XT had tiny fuzz all over it almost like hair.

I suspect the printer but I need help figuring this one out.

Thanks

John

    • "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.
