Ultimaker ABS filament not smooth after exrusion

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker ABS filament not smooth after exrusion

Hi,

I recently purchased from Ultimaker ABS (silver) filament from local re-seller but I find the extruded filament is not smooth and appears to be rough.

Can any one tell what could be the problem?

I've attached the image of the issue.

Does it sizzle and hiss? If so it may be wet. That's a common problem with nylon but I haven't heard of water issues with ABS.

No sizzle or hissing sound coming during extrusion.

I printed few parts and no issues are observed.

Is this due to the type of material (UM metallic silver)?
