PLA print problems


Recommended Posts

Posted · PLA print problems

I've printed PLA for the longest without problems, now it fails. See Picture. These are the details for the picture marked "ultimaker":

UM2 extended+

Cura 4.5

.15mm layer height

.35mm layer width

.7mm wall thickness

25% infill

Ultimaker filament, newly opened (other brand also fails)

Speed 100%

Nozzle 210C

Plate 60C

Fan 100%

Retraction 6.5mm - 25mm/sec


Help really appreciated, my prints for Make4Covid are failing.


Thanks, Hubert
