Strange effects on falt surface

Recommended Posts

I tested this weekend a new filament bought recently. The Artic White from Faberdashery.

First, it's an excellent filament, with good adherence on the surface and without any stringling effect. Perfect filament !

But I've got issue on the flat surface of this print :

IMG 3329

As you can see there are holes on the surface.

For information, this is the settings of this print :

Layer Height : 0.06

Top and Bottom : 0.3 (5 layers)

Print temp : 190C

Speed : 50mms

How can I fixed this issue without increasing the number of layer on top and bottom ?

And is it possible to add in Cura the possibility to choose a different layer height for the top and another for the bottom surface ?

Greater infill or greater top/bottom thickness are the ways to fix this. Keep in mind, with settings similar to yours, the filament has nothing to hold it up for the brief period when it is still liquid. In order to stop this, there must be support for the molten plastic. Either a build-up of layers (top/bottom thickness) or more infill. Hope this helps.

    • 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.
