Fluffy/Hollow print quality


Recommended Posts

Posted · Fluffy/Hollow print quality

Hi eceryone. I bought a material called PLAx from a company name Magma earlier this year. But i have not unpack it until yesterday after I just finished using my old filamen. It was still in vacuum when I unpacked it.

 

However, using the recommended nozzle temperature of 200°C-220°C, which I selected 200°C I didn't manage to achieve descent quality print. I tried twice and the result swere the same like the attached image.

 

Any idea what went wrong in the printing process??

 

Please enlighten me. Thanl you in advance.

    That's severe underextrusion.  You are getting maybe 10% extrusion.  Try higher temperatures and/or lower speeds.  What does the manufacturer recommend for nozzle temp?

     

    If that were PLA I would say it looks like you are about 50C too cold (printing at 150C) or about 10X too fast.

     

    Is it possible that the diameter of the filament is wrong?  If you inserted 1.75mm filament instead of 2.85mm that would explain the problem.  Or if you received 3mm filament (instead of 2.85) and it reaches 3.1mm in places it would get all jammed up in the bowden.

    I will try slower print during the weekend.

     

    When looking on your pictures, I don't think just printing slower will solve your issue. 

    You should double check it you can print normally with your usual PLA material or if you have additionally clogged nozzle or issues at the feeder.

    Ok. It was printing fine before I changed the filamen. But I will look into it again during the weekend.
