Failed Print

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Here is my question.

I saw so many awesome phone cover prints, that i had decided to print my own as well.

I was trying to print a phone cover on my Ultimaker Original +. After one hour of printing my printer failed like always...

Here are the results of printing after an hour.

And this was the support..

My prints always fails if it's big size. I have no problem with little ones. I guess my problems is somewhere there but i can not figure it out what the exact problem is. But I am not sure if that could be the main problem..

If something is not clear enough just ask me. I hope that I explained the situation very well and hope someone could help me.

With kind regards,

Schweppes

I can see a few problems.

Your speeds vary a LOT, Its best to keep all these the same. There are a few problems when you have them change like that. 1 being that it ends up printing to fast or slow for the nozzle temp. So you may get under extrusion on the infill but over heat the outer shell.

2 being that the x/y reaction time is a lot faster then the filament being fed through the bowden so you can end up with fat area of the line its putting down. (hope that makes sense)

It also seams that you item wasn't sitting on the glass. you don't need any support if its lying on its back. so turn this off and make sure the model is sitting on the glass.

Your view in cura is standing up. will it print this way or is the bottom curved?

if you print it standing up then rotate it 45deg angle as it will print nicer this way.

Your layer height is 0.2mm and you top bottom thickness is 0.6mm this means it will only have 4 layers to cover the infill, its best to have this at 6-8 time the layer height. especially if your infill is 10%

20% infill is normal so your could try that.

You can also set the bed temp to 60deg.
