Way too much stringing and minor overhang issues


Recommended Posts

Posted · Way too much stringing and minor overhang issues

I am printing the all in one 3d printer test micro. I am printing this on a QIDI tech x one 2. I am printing this in HATCHBOX black PLA: link. I am using the cura settings attached. It comes out as shown in the images attached. There is a lot of stringing, which I really want to prevent, and the overhangs seem to droop earlier than they should. There is also a weird aspect with the overhangs that i've noticed in other prints too. In the longer branch as shown in the picture with a view from underneath, you can see that around 0-10 degrees is just fine, but 10-45 gets bad and messy, then 45-70 is just fine again. Please let me know anything I can try to solve these issues. Thanks

    Have you tried to print a temperature tower?

    At what temperature was this printed?

    In most of the cases the stringing gets really bad when the print temperature is too hot for the plastic.

    this wil cause the plastic to still be soft afther the printer has printed a line, causing the plastic to warp and shape differently than intended, as you showed in the pictures.
