How to reduce ghosting

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to reduce ghosting

I am enjoying my ultimaker 2+ so far but I am having problems reaching the best print quality at a decent speed. In order to make ghosting invisible I have had to reduce acceleration to 750mm/s^2 and jerk to 3. This is relatively slow for printing large objects so I am looking for some community feedback here. What acceleration and jerk settings are people able to print https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:277394 with no visible ghosting? I suspect the spring tensioner may be contributing to these low values so I am also looking for any tips/tricks to possibly improve belt tension?

All the best,

Adam

I have never changed jerking or acceleration settings, so I can't comment on that. But generally, printing slower (and thus also cooler) greatly reduces this effect: for small high quality parts I use 20 or 30mm/s instead of 50mm/s.

Also, some materials hide this better than others, if they are slightly translucent. But not too translucent, because then you start to see the inner print lines too much.
