UM2+E jamming mid print with .25 nozzle.

Recommended Posts

Posted · UM2+E jamming mid print with .25 nozzle.

There is probably something simple I'm missing, but I've already tried Googling, but that hasn't given me much. 

I've used the stock .25 nozzle a few times before, but they always have been relatively small and quick prints, no more than a few hours, and .2 layer height. 

Now, I'm printing a pretty intricate and delicate model that needs a .25 nozzle and to print at .1 layer height, and even with a UM2, I feel like I need to print extremely slow. Every print attempt jammed at a random point. The kind "jam" where its not really jamming, and the edge of the filament, when pulled out, is thicker and kind of flat. 

I read that going too slow with a small nozzle can cause this problem, but it jammed at my last attempt at 45mm/s. I previously tried 15mm/s and 30mm/s. The print going at 45mm/s got the furthest along. I'm just too afraid to go any faster. The model is a female character figure with a thin skirt that flares out that needs lots of support for (I did everything I can to thicken the skirt area in Blender). 

Is there something I'm missing, or am I thinking too hard into this and just should increase the speed? Thanks!

    • "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.
