Brown bubbles

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm pretty new at 3D printing. I've had some workshops for 3D printing and a friend of me asked me if I could build him a 3D printer (Ultimaker Original+). Yet it works, but after a while of printing, weird brown bubbles or something appear. They come most of the time when the filament gets pulled back to go to the second print (pictures are on the bottom). The brown plastic will become a bubble, the printer head will bump to the bubble every time and make the bubble even bigger, until it makes the printer to move the 3d print.

Do you guys know why this is happening and how to get rid of it?

Greetings,

Xenoyx

Probably the nozzle it's dragging filament from the first layers, then it builds more and drops burned on the print. Check the first layers and adjust the bed alignment so it don't drags filament.

Also the temperature could be too high.

As temperature I use 215 degrees of Celsius. The first layers look nice, but after a while (5mm or so) the bubbles appear. I will test soon!

The nozzle could be a little bit too close to the bed, so it drags the printed filament and it builds around the nozzle tip.

 

Ah that can be because of the calibration method (A4 paper), I have very cheap paper, maybe its thinner... thanks for your help!

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
