Filament "drops" falling from extruder while the head travels

Recommended Posts

Hi

Is retraction enabled? This is called stringing and is caused by the nozzle oozing some filament while it's not printing.

Retraction can control this, you can also increase travel speed and lower temperature and speed.

By the way be warned that the version of cura you are using is in beta and might behave strangely sometimes

    • 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.
