Posted · Vertical turbine print issues at certain height.

Hi everyone,

I am trying to print vertical axis wind turbine, but my print fails at a certain height. I've used the recommended print settings for the TOP WING. Can anyone help me how to overcome this issue? Many thanks in advance.

Thank you

Vik

    stringing is often cured by lowering the print head temperature, strange that it starts only towards the top (cant see the inside of the front part, but I assume its there too)

    maybe you could try dropping the temp by say 5 degrees - you could use the 'Tweak at Z plugin' so you don't have to sit and wait to make the change

    Many thanks for your response. I tried reducing temperature, but no luck ! However, I'll try to use the 'Tweak at Z plugin'.
