Printing in Blobs

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing in Blobs

I just changed the nozzle (0.4 mm) on my UM2 extended. It tries to print the object but it puts out blobs of material. I am using PLA material and the machine is only one month old. Please give suggestions I can try.

Most likely you are levelled a bit too high off the glass. Try turning the 3 leveling knobs a full turn counter clockwise while printing your next part to see if that helps.

Did you change it out for the same nozzle again, or did you install an Olsson block? Can you provide any photos if you're still having problems?
