My print is a mess!

Recommended Posts

Looks like spaghetti infill :D

This normally happens when the part falls over, breaks and comes unstuck from the bed. I'm guessing all the lower parts turned out fine but you had one bit that stuck up higher than the rest?

Slow down your printer speed so the filament can lay down right, and if printing with ABS you might want to turn the fan on (50-100%), also always monitor your print, and if your printer can be adjusted try printing a simple shape and adjust the plate while its printing (wear heat resistance gloves just incase you can feel the heat while adjusting) until the first layer is good and sticks right, if the first layer isnt stucked to the plate well, it might affect later on by lifting and causing a mess, if possible make the first layer speed 20-30mm/s and the rest 40, it might make the time longer but it'll make it shoud make it work, make the travel speed 60/mms or lower.

Hope this works!

    • "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.
