nozzle clears away the printed parts at times while moving

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

the other day I was printing these figures but most of the time the nozzle clears away everything it has printed so far, generating this one big mess.

Is there something that can be done to prevent this? I'm thinking about adjusting printing speed settings so that the filament has more time to glue itself on the heated bed.

Or are there other possibilities perhaps?

Any advise is more then welcome :-)

ps printing with pla, I already adjusted the actual printing speed to 30mm/sec

    • "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.
