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!

    • "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.
