Ultimaker S5 - printing problems

Bottom of the print. Yes, I use the Breakaway support and the material is PLA.

Probably the PLA was contaminated with moisture, may be the cause of this?


Thank you!

    If the part with the hole in it was supported by breakaway too, I would say there was something wrong with the support structure underneath it. But if it hat contact with the build plate, I don't know either.


    I never had any problems with moisture when printing PLA and it just lays around open here at work and at home. So I would leave that out.

    Is your concern the ropy texture of the surface around the hole? And this surface was on the build plate? That would indicate that the first layer was printed too high and you didn't get enough squish. What layer height and nozzle size are you using? Perhaps check the initial layer height.
