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.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
