Underextrusion problem in certain areas of a wall

Posted · Underextrusion problem in certain areas of a wall

Hi,

attached a picture of a printed wall (5 mm, 7% infill, wall thickness 0.4mm, speed 30mm/s). There you can see some spots with underextrusion?! I expect it depends on the way of the extruder - that would explain why it always ends at the same spot. Did you also have this problem? How can i fix it? I also think the stl quality has an influence.

Thanks a lot for your help!

    5mm (whats 5mm?) 0.4 wall is far too thin for me even though you can do it, but with more practice, and 7% infil is pointless, dont go below 18%. Speed is ok and the slowest i will go to get a good quality print as long as its not tiny, in which case ill print more so that the nozzle doenst hang about on one for too long.

    those gaps mean underextrusion normally, not sure what your layer height is though.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
