Roughness of the filament


Recommended Posts

Posted · Roughness of the filament

Hi guys. I'm new to 3D printing. I just bought an ultimaker 2 extended+. As my filament goes into the feeder it tends to get rough like a scaly appearance instead of how smooth it was previously. Could I please have some help here if there is anything I should be worried about or to avoid it? Thank you guys in advance.

    Hi and welcome ;)

    This is caused by the knurled wheel in the feeder, it has to grip the filament to make it move so it will always leave some marks on the filament.

    As long as it doesn't get flattened or grinded you should be perfectly fine.

    Do you have any issues with the printer?

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
