Swiss Cheese, anyone?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Swiss Cheese, anyone?

I'm an FNG,

I'm using an Anet A8, with white PLA, Cura 4.4.1, nozzle temp 200C, bed is 95C, flow rate 100%.


I downloaded "3D_Printer_test_fixed_stl_3rd_gen" from Thingiverse


The first layers went down no problem (i.e. the bed is level), then after some of the upright items started to get printed it's like Swiss cheese.?

I thought maybe I had a partially clogged nozzle, so I removed the nozzle soaked it in acetone, got it looking nice.  

Then on the second attempt it's doing the same thing :((

What should I be looking for?

    Bingo, you win the prize... OK, there's no prize 😁


    I looked into the machine settings and sure enough it was set up for 2.85mm, I changed it to 1.75 and I'm attempting a reprint now


    Thanks for the info 😃
