Surface defects


Recommended Posts

Posted · Surface defects

Hello everyone,


I’m new here and need some guidance in figuring out what’s wrong with my prints.


im using a Ultimaker 2+ with Ultimaker Metallic Silver PLA. My prints are perfect except for this weird surface defects in random areas. I’m sure it’s not because of the print head stopping to change direction since it doesn’t go all the way through the print. I also checked to see if it has something to do with the supports or infill and that’s not the case.


Please see attached images.

    looks a bit like under-extrusion. Is your nozzle ok and your feeder-tension set correctly?

    There is a good troubleshooting-guide at the Ultimaker Homepage, possibly it helps.
