print problem at same height in one direction

Recommended Posts

It looks like a cooling problem. Judging from the print you are working on an UMO(+). The fan coming from one side could have this effect, although it's pretty intense here.

Could you supply the model, perhaps there is a better orientation? Or a dual fan setup could work. Alternatively you can use a big room fan and point it at the printer from the other side temporarily.

If all those are no option, print 2 of these models at once, that will allow the plastic to cool down more before starting the next layer. And print at a lower temperature if possible.

It could also be a stability issue, that the right leg of the print was moving during the print?

    • "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.
