Skipping / Under extrusion

Recommended Posts

Posted · Skipping / Under extrusion

Hi,

For some time, my printer skips every now and then while printing. Is this normal? I've been trying my best on cleaning the nozzle with Atomic method after I switch filaments. Should I sink my nozzle to acetone? Here is a picture while printing with silver Ultimaker PLA. Tried to raise my nozzle temp from 210°C (default PLA profile) to 220. Helped a bit but still happening every once in a while. With ABS (picture with black print) I've been having sort of under extrusion I believe? Any suggestions what to do?

Also I can see on this silver print that it leaves a slight gap between lines when doing the flat base.

    • "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.
