Catastrophic Print Failure

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I attempted to print a chain mail item and had a major failed print 

Item: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3096598

The small sample print worked fine.

 

The glass bed was forced out of its holders and moved with part of the print, and as you can see below filled the extruder head with PLA.

These machines are only a few months old.

 

Glass Bed moved and scratched the Metal bed underneath and back of machine.

Any tips on how to clean (Or should I just replace the extruder head)

 

 

Any suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated. ?

 

Thank you in advance.

    • "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.
