What is going on with this????

Recommended Posts

Wondering if someone has seen this? This is the second time I have prepared an overnight print - 2 pieces - and when I return in the morning the first one is OK the second one looks a mess :) Wondering if anyone has seen this before and might suggest something I am not doing correctly??IMG_0480.thumb.JPG.e07374b4d9d61386b50721eb0e6caf25.JPG

Are you printing them concurrently or sequentially?

What is your first layer thickness and print speed and bed temp and extruder temp.?

Are you using adhesive? What?

What material are you using?

Are the fans off for the first few layers?

What is your 2nd layer to top layer thickness? Is the extruder temp. the same as above?

The top layer on the first one looks very poor - would you agree or is that how you expect it to look?

If you look closely you can see the warping in the first layer. Since it was overnight and nobody stopped the print it kept on spitting out material in the middle of nowhere and you get the fluffy ball.

If i see it correct your first layer is really really thin.

Maybe your bed is leveled to close?

If this is not true you should try using a brim or try some adhesive spray on your bed, but with the size of the print I do not think that should be necessary.
