Second Print on new printer

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

My first print was the UM3 robot that came with the USB drive. It came out great.

So I decided to print another piece and on the image below you can see that print was messing up. The part that you are seeing is the base of the print that touches the glass bed. For some reason its printing bumps and lifting up from the print bed. I thought I would try a second print and I received the exact same results from the print bed.

 

***Before print*** I cleaned the glass with soap and water and dried it really well. Then I used a very light layer of glue on the print bed.

 

Can someone please tell me why this is happening? 

 

Thanks

OK here is a second print.  on these pictures, the two corners are completely lifted and basically melted on the front. The back side is having the same issues as the above picture.

Sorry for the cheesy writing on the pics. It was done off of my iPad.

 

Thanks

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
