Skipping / Under extrusion

Recommended Posts


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?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
