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
