TPU printing


Recommended Posts

Posted · TPU printing

I'm struggling to get a consistent finish on my TPU prints.  It starts and ends well, but if there is a break in the wall of the print, the finish is rough and not translucent.  


I've tried messing with z hop, reducing and increasing retraction speed and distance and raising and lowering temperature and none seem to help. Does anyone have any ideas?


Attached are a couple pictures showing what I'm talking about.  And my latest Cura settings.

    Hi, which print core are you using for this print? And besides some changes you might have made to a profile, is this in foundation the fast or another profile? I would probably suggest to try a slower profile if you've picked the fast one.


    So besides changing temperature, I would look at slowing down your speed a little bit. What are your jerk settings?

    In which order are your walls printed?
