S5 Heat Creep


Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 Heat Creep

Ok, the last one was too verbose. tl;dr


I'm having some trouble with heat creep on the S5; it is reproducible in a particular print, and jams every time at (ballpark) the same layers. Cooling fan does spin and blow air. Filament is eSun ABS+ printing with standard ABS profile.

    Hi, have you tried printing a prime tower or something like that? I don't know about the model you are trying to print, but perhaps adding a prime tower to boost the extrusion flow so the filament is not in your print core for too long could help?
