Fixing nubs

Recommended Posts

I am getting 'nubs" in various places on prints.

What is the official name for these by the way?

If I print the same model in the same bed location and orientation I get the nubs in the same places from print to print.

I got net fab and examined the STL model for flaws the model showed it was good.

I ran the check for flaws and not a single one came up.

I couldn't see any thing in the mesh that was protruding in the nub area.

I haven't gone through and tighten belts as they seem to be just as tight as the day I got the machine.

Any wisdom would be appreciated.

In the past I have found the following to help with this

run the walls at 1.6

slow down, say 30mm/s

set your speeds the same, so infill/inner speed/outer speed as all 0 and print speed 30

run as cool as you can. I was testing a new filament today and started at a temp of 200 which looked fine but I dialled it down in steps to 180 which also looked fine and I chose 185

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
