Hi and welcome to the forums!

Hm, the print sure looks bad. Did you check (and how) that the nozzle is not partially clogged? Also make sure the filament is still fine. If it was stored incorrectly, it could have deformed.

If possible, post your print settings too.


we've de-clogged and changed the nozzle and that hasn't made a difference. the bed temperature is 60 and nozzle is around 220 celcius. The reel looks fine.

PTFE coupler!

Bet you a beer.

If everything has been working great for a long time and you haven't changed anything (including filament brand) then it might be that pesky PTFE coupler. It is the hardest thing to inspect, so it is always the last.

    • "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.
