Weird anomaly that is repeated in every print


Recommended Posts

Posted · Weird anomaly that is repeated in every print


I am printing PPE parts for our medical workers. We received the STL from the project coordinator with suggested settings for Cura. I normally use Simplify3D but the print took much longer than expected. So I switched to Cura with the latest download and the print time was in line with the predicted time. However, I have a strange anomaly at one place in the part that is identical for all parts. I did a re-slice but it seems to stay the same .

The top part in the picture was printed with Simplify3D and the bottom one with Cura. Seven parts after that are all identical. As if the error is actually part of the gcode.


The printer is my own build based on a Cron (local company)

    If you are using combing, set the max comb distance with no retract to something like 10.


    If you are printing PETG you may find that turning off combing completely is best.

        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.
