Help with deformation om print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Help with deformation om print

Looks like you print too hot or with too low fans.

You want to cool the printed layer as fast as possible, that it is cool enough before the next layer comes. In the upper part, there is a kind of "support" of the previous layer and you don't see such effects, but the overhangs in the lower part have only very little support from the previous layer and that's the result.


Check if you can print cooler a little bit, check your fan speed and when the fan goes to full speed and maybe lower your print speed to give the layer more time to cool down.

In addition to what Smithy said about printing cool, printing thicker layers also may help. Then tend to sag less than thin layers in my models. The basic problem is that your overhangs are too steep.
