Globs/Nubs Around Infill Ribs - Why?

Recommended Posts

Hey all!  Just got an Ultimaker 2 Extended + and I am noticing some little globbies that are happening around the infill ribs.  

Any ideas to eliminate them for a cleaner print?


Cura 15.04.4

Layer = .1

Shell = .8

Retraction Enabled

Bot/Top layer = 0.8

Fill = 20%

Print Speed = 50 mm/s

Brim Support

Nozzle = 0.4mm

Nozzle Temp = 210°C

Buildplate Temp = 60°C

Travel Speed = 150 mm/s

Fans 100% after 5mm height

Min layer time 5 secIMG_1599.thumb.JPG.93744b3d1228a0d22dc8999576d6cdfe.JPG

Thanks for your help ahead of time!

it's hidden anyway, unless your model is really translucent. Then it useful to tick the 'infill prints after perimeters' in the expert settings.

And you could experiment with your temperature, trying a bit colder, so the nozzles oozes less. But be careful for under extrusion.
