How to get rid of this string? retraction?

Recommended Posts

Well it happens to me just only very occasionally so I have never taken the time to try and work out why. I just cut it off with a hobby knife. It could be the filament or you could be printing too hot but that would tend to lead to more stringing not just a blob at the end of the print. I use the standard Cura retraction settings although they seem to change settings with their releases so that statement is probably not helpful.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
