gaps in wall lines and bad layers

Recommended Posts

Test print on UM3 with generic PVA printed at 0.15 layer height.

 

If you look closely at the wall you can see gaps between the inner and outer walls. You can actually see three extrusion lines with a gap between each.  It's hard to see in the photo but it's there.5aa55aa98838b_20180311_1225151.thumb.jpg.5705f8d16f310390199a4d9e955a994f.jpgWhat causes this?

 

You can also see some really rough layering. This makes the thin parts of the model really weak.

Any suggestions?

Cannot really say much without knowing what your settings are, eg temperatures print speeds, overlaps etc. The tall thin piece will probably be due to minimum layer print time - ie. it is so thin there will not be enough time for the layer to cool before the next layer printed - of course the pic is not of the complete model so that is more of a guess than an absolute.

      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.
