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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
