I'm trying to improve the print quality one my ultimaker, you can see the tiny blobs on there.

 


  • too much filament = correct diameter?
    to hot currently 200°C ?

 

Also the top extrusion is very bad, it ruined the piece...

Using Cura 10.9 an mac.

Mendelworld PLA filament "3mm"

    While I'm no expert, I think there are a variety of things that can cause this. Things I would be looking at:

     


    • Size of filament setting matching the actual size
      packing density
      minimum layer time
      minimum feed rate
      Fan on or off
      speed of printing
      layer size. Looks like pretty big layers.

    It's definitely bad cheap filament, the red filament delivered with the ultimaker does not show these blobs.

    Measuring the filament it varied from 2,76mm till 2,92mm.

    So I guess this topic should really be in the cura section.. :roll:
