Help with my first print

Recommended Posts

A pleasant day to everyone!

 

I'm Diggy from the Philippines and a newbie in the hobby. Just started today!

 

I would like to please seek advise regarding my first print today. I noticed while printing, there seems to be stringy marks all over the surface. (it's still printing as I type) I would like to know if this is normal and if not, what solutions may you guys give to make a cleaner print. 

 

Attached are pictures of the printing process and my current settings. I printed on recommended just to be sure.

 

additional details:

Printer: Ultimaker 2 Extended +
Nozzle: .4
Printing Software used: Fusion 360

 

Many thanks in advance

 

Diggy

Hi @Diggy  welcome to the forums! :)

Hope we'll be able to help you well and you'll find this a good place to hang around and get involved!

Those look like kinda weird artifacts. Although I don't think it is something to worry about, it would be nice to find out why it happens.

Thanks for including the photo, that always helps. What is it that you are printing? 

Have you made any other modifications to the profile, or is it fully recommended?

    • "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.
