Printing with Colorfabb

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I recently started trying to print with Colorfabb Olive, but it came out pretty bad. The filament grinded to a stop ~80% of the way through, which okay this sometimes happens, but the really weird thing is the part quality is terrible.

It literally tore the part apart just trying to get it off the build platform, it looks like the layers have barely bonded together. Any ideas why this might happen?

Print settings:

PLA - 210 C Nozzle Temp, 60C Build plate

Layer Height : 0.25mm

Print Speed : 2500 mm/min

Material Flow : 130% (modified on machine - i wanted part to be watertight.)

With that speed and layer height you might need to up the temp a bit,

or lower the speed.

the grinding could be caused that too much filament is pushed through before it can be heated properly.
