Dotted printing

Posted · Dotted printing

Hi guys. So I was trying to print something for my project this morning. I load a new gcode file on the thumb drive and load it into Ultimaker 3. Once it finished leveling and started to print, I noticed that it became dotted lines. I don't know how to describe it but I've attached pictures for you guys to take a look at. Did you guys ever encounter something like this before? If you have any idea on how to fix this, help a bro in need.

    its probably because of an clogged nozzle or the filament is grinded down by the feeder. 


    To check if you have a clogged nozzle, you can set the nozzletemp to 200°C for PLA and then push the filament manualy through the nozzle. 

    To check if the filament is grinded down, unload the filament and look for spots that are grinded down. 


    What material did you use and at what temperature/speed do you print?

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
