Inconsistent Layers

Recommended Posts

I’ve been having issues with my Ultimaker 3, as shows in the pictures, some layers print inconsistently and there is a gap in between some of the layers. I’ve attached the settings. 

 

NOTE: The speed was actually 20 mm/s for both Infil and Print

 

i also noticed the infill has gaps in between layers as wel. Any ideas on what might be wrong or how to fix this?

Your settings do not seem to reflect the model shown. Apart from a setting of 70mm/s when you say 20mm/s, the base of the boat has no bottom but your settings say top/bottom thickness 2mm - all very strange. Quite possibly problem is due to under-extrusion but difficult to say as you have not quoted extruder temp. Otherwsie is could be a problem with your feed system/filament - maybe the filament is poor quality with uneven thickness which is causing it to stick inside the Bowden tube

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
