Ultimaker Original - blobs on prints

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Original - blobs on prints

Well this has me puzzled

I think I have ruled out ...

The extruder (inspected/clean...no debris found)

Fans same settings on each

Filament - Used Ultimaker Silver @225C and ColorFabb Orange @ 210C

Retraction set to 4.8mm at 45 mm/sec

Nozzle is clean (atomics show a good, clean nozzle)

Note the same areas with defects. Looks like underextrusion near bottom...then left eye of the robot has some blobs.

What could it be!

Interesting thread

I was running Cura 15.04.2 for these prints and the newer Cura, with Coasting, might help.

Hi LePaul,

This one is interesting.. Can't help but, I do not believe this is a "random" blobs placed with this precision on two of our standard test object. No Way.. :)

Why not try the flow test, as this will show "the error" more easy for us to investigate?

Thanks.

Which flow test?

Yes, interesting that both prints in different materials present the same issue

Try printing at half speed. Quality just sky rockets at 20 to 25mm/sec. And make sure ALL printin gspeeds are the same - none of this "infill faster" stuff. Fast travel speed is good but slow printing speed.

Hi gr5 and LePaul,

Even a better idea for sure, go for it, but don't change the nozzle -just one thing at a time..

Good Luck.

Torgeir.

That's good advice

I'll slow it down and see how the blob situation goes.

    • "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.
