After half of the print, print goes wrong

Recommended Posts

Posted · After half of the print, print goes wrong

Hey everybody,

I've got the following problem. The first time I printed the set square, everything went well. After a week or so, I tried printing something else and this started going wrong. So I repeated printing something I knew it should actually work – a second set square. Half of the print went right. The surface became smooth and great. It last about an hour. After that the print started getting wrong. You can see the result in the pictures.

My settings:

PLA as material

Nozzle 0,4mm

Normal quality

The temperature and other settings I can't tell right now because cura says, I wouldnt be connected to the printer and so doesn't tell.

I would be really happy to hear of any idea ;-)

    I think there is some problem with your printer. It may be due to high temperatue. One of my friend was facing the same problem, but in that case nozzle was not working fine. We change the nozzle and get good prints. If your nozzle is fine, then high temperature may be one of the reason.

    I had this issue with a stubbornly blocked nozzle. Did 25 atomic pulls and it sorted it. Examine the atomic pulls for an imperfections and keep doing it until you have none.

    Cant see any pictures though.

    I think that ur nozzle might be broken. Try to use 0.25 or 0.6mm. If it still doesn't work, check ur slicing and temperature settings(nozzle ~180°C, bed ~60°C).
