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

    • 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.
