Skipping / Under extrusion

Recommended Posts

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?
