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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
