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.

    • "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.
