Brassfill Issues anyone?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have been having issues with brassfill from colourfabb while printing from my UM3.

Every time I print, the print goes well for the first 10-30 minutes. Then for some reason the feeder grinds the filament and snaps it at the feeder. Either this happens or the filament simply snaps by the feeder, I am not sure.

I know brassfill is very delicate but it should not be this delicate right?

Has anyone else had this problem before? Or has an Idea how to possibly solve this? - I am new to 3d printing :)

    • "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.
