filament roughness

Recommended Posts

There has been grinding by the feeder. It looks like the print had heaps of retractions, This could have caused it.

It can also be caused by a nozzle block, the feeder motor getting to hot or a tangle in the filament roll.

If you insert it back into the printer then you may need to push it till its passed the part with the grinding. there maybe a slight defect in your print when the damaged part reaches you nozzle but you probably wont notice it.
