PLA poor quality prints


Recommended Posts

Posted · PLA poor quality prints



I have recently noticed that my PLA Prints are poorly printed on the Ultimaker S5. 

I have used a 0.2 and 0.15mm prints settings , 0,4mm Print Core.

Any ideas why the last few layers are sort of smeared/blurry?

Please see attached photos.

Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi geert_2,


    Thank you for your reply.

    I have changed the layer thickness to the 0.1mm and these objects printed fine this time.

    I guess I'll stay with this layer height for this particular part for now.


    Thanks again.
