Sensors malfunctioned? Have to increase temperature for a particular filament considerably.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Sensors malfunctioned? Have to increase temperature for a particular filament considerably.

Using a black filament I've had to increase the nozzle temp compared to white filament to 220 degC, after quite a few successful prints I noticed it would occasionally jam and after many atomic methods to no avail I tried some of the white filament and tried pushing it trough manually and it worked a treat straight away. I figured it must be the temperature and so increasing it to around 250-255 degC with the black filament got it flowing how it was previously.

The trouble I have now is that its leaving strings whilst moving the head - and clearly something is wrong.

How do I troubleshoot this - I'm assuming the sensors are the things I have to check first?

If the white works but the black doesn't then it sounds like it's a material issue.

Are you sure the black is Pla?  Maybe it was labeled wrong.

My first thought also is that the black material might be ABS.

    • "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.
