Strange Loops of the filament

Recommended Posts

I have in the print such loops or bows of the filament.

ABS, 260°C, bed 90°C, speed 40mm/sec.

I changed speed, but my impression this is not changing.

I am using this filament in another machine with no problems like this.


Has anyone in an idea, what I could test?

I tried with Cura - it looks quite different.the stripes change postion with the speed. if you move the nozzle head (UM2, of course power off) do you feel any resistances? If I move the head, I feel not the same resistance over the movement.


With Cura I have the issue that the perimeter goes sometimes outside the model. It is reproducable, it is always on the same points- but not visible in Cura.


Any ideas ...??

    • "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.
