Bumps at the beginning of the layer or travels

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I have recently got Creality CR 10S and my models are having some problems I don't know how to solve. They have some little bumps on the surface and in the slicer I can see they all are likely on the beginning of the layer or on the end of a travel movement. Halving the speed and acceleration of travels and the acceleration of walls some improvement can be seen but I can't get a perfect result. Y have tried to tense the belts but it didn't work. Does someone have any advice for me?

If this is printed with multiple models at once, or with priming tower or so, it could be that the nozzle leaks while traveling through the air, and then deposits that blob onto the model when arriving at the edge? If this is the case, printing slower and cooler should reduce the effect (=less pressure in the nozzle, and filament is less liquid), but it is hard to eliminate totally.

 

If this model is printed alone, without the nozzle traveling elsewhere, the cause must be something else. Maybe settings? But I am not using the latest Cura version, so I can't say anything on that.

Try turning off "outer wall wipe distance".  (set to zero).  Let me know if that helps.  I'm a bit skeptical about that feature but haven't messed with it.  Let us know.

 

Also you can try cutting the speed in half just to see if that helps.  That often helps.  You can do it in the TUNE menu.  Not just the outer shell speed but all the speeds as if it's printing faster on inner shell then it tends to over extrude when it hits the outer shell.

Hi Gr5,

I have tried both in the same printing (Tune>Speed>50%&outer wall wipe distance=0) and the result isn't good. I thing outer wall wipe distance affects at the end of the outer line but in my case the problem happens on the begening of the outer wall and the nozzles drags the over extruded material so now I think the problem is over extrusion as you said. I'm attaching the project, I thing the artifacts take place on the layer 18,20,26  on the right side of the benchy and 14,15,16,17,19,21,23,24 on the other side

I have got a pretty decent print by changing the place where nozzle begins the outer layer. Problem isn't solved but it's less obvious. The setting is something like Hide Seams, I honestly think that this setting has an internal mistake as when I set "Hide" it places the seam anywhere and when I set "Expose" it place the seam in a corner, where bumps are more difficult to detect. This behaviour is the opposite of the one that is described in the help.

So if you look 2 and 3 photos above at the side of benchy - those look like play/backlash issues where sometimes the head moves farther than others.  In other words an intermittent hardware issue.  I could be wrong - it could be overextrusion for example due to speed changes (I like to set ALL printing speeds the same to avoid stuff like that).

 

play/backlash can be caused by high friction (one drop of light oil on all the rods helps and feel the friction with power off - compare X to Y) and it can be caused by loose belts (pluck the belt with head in corner - for a UM2/Um3 it should be around 90-130Hz.  Dont' know anything about creality printers.

    • "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.
