Something Wrong with my filament

Recommended Posts

Posted · Something Wrong with my filament

Hi everybody, I just bought a new Ultimaker 2 Plus extended about a week ago. I love it a lot so far. However there is two problems that I have right now: (Sorry for my bad English)

Problem 1: It seems like there is a dis-uniform color in my Ultimaker Silver PLA filament. The color slightly shift after several layer.IMG_3068.thumb.JPG.b393631701b24224c568d1c09b6219ae.JPG

Problem 2: There is several random mark/scratch on my print. You can look at the red circles on the image IMG_3067.thumb.JPG.dc3cb6bfe0e73a70c7d8ad5433b91d75.JPG

I printed with the factory setting for temperature and

 

  • Layer height of 0.1mm
  • Speed at 40mm/s
  • Infill of 20%
  • Brim
  • Enable Retraction
  • Shell thickness of 1.2mm

 

Is there any way to fix the problem? or any suggest on changing the setting in Cura?

Thank you for your time

Suspect it is where the outer layer stops and starts. The rest of the print looks pretty good.

You need a Cura expert.
