Help with Printing Quality issues

Recommended Posts

Having some problems all of a sudden, so I ran a test print and I am wondering the best way to tackle them since they seemed to all appear at once. Could be the new filament I'm using. Walls don't meet up with interior well anymore and everything is pretty stringy. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Ha, ya it may be just that. I have been printing a massive model and haven't changed from white for quite a while. This problem has only cropped up since I have been using white so maybe that's the issue. It just seemed so odd that all of a sudden, everything was out of whack but also has contradicting results. Like, really solid layers, but the walls aren't touching. Anyways, I am almost done my printing with white, and I will change it out and see if that's the root cause. Thanks for the input, I completely forgot about that possibility.

    • "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.
