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?

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
