Layers are separating after print is finished


Recommended Posts

Posted · Layers are separating after print is finished

Lately when I've tried to print parts, they seem to look good during the print, and they look good on the outside at first glance. But when I apply a little force to them, they snap or break. I have no idea what is causing them to be so brittle. Any ideas on what is causing this?

    This effect is usually caused by applying too much cooling for materials that don't need much cooling like ABS. Try reducing the cooling.
