Nice layers, bad rising structure. Why?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've printed some boxes with good quality (UM2, 123D-filament, and Colorfabb filament (red).

However, after changing filemanents the flat parts of the box print well, the rising have holes in it.. (see picture).

Why? I cleaned nozzle and feeder (atomic), print very slow, but still. I repeated it several times, each time the same.

It is as if small rising areas are not printed ok. 5a33113dd1071_doosjemetfalenderand.thumb.jpg.28c9c2d2562d5f20c3853158531ab5d6.jpg

I use the same printfile (GCODE) as before, but even with the same filament is doesn't work any more.

Thanks!

Hein

Yes I heard clicking sound. Found a video in this community: it was too heavy for the stepper motor to push. So cleaned again, made higher temp. Still clicking. Loosened the spring on the feeder.. I think clicking has gone away. Trying to print now a larger item.

Did look ok in layer view, measured the diameter indeed (not continuously), is not near end of roll.

I keep my fingers crossed it is solved (trouble shooting cost soo much time). Thanks Labern for your ideas. Will let know if it works now!
