Strange Pattern in Print Walls


Recommended Posts

Posted · Strange Pattern in Print Walls
Hi all,

Im having a few issues with my 3D printer at the moment which im think is a software or G-Code issue, i have these new strange ridges in my 3D prints.

I installed a 2nd Z Axis rod recently as i thought this might solves the issues, however this has not done anything to change the problem.

Has anyone got any idea, im thinking now it could be some issue in the G-Cofe for the Ender 3-MAX

Picture as below if anyone has any ideas?

Many thanks,


G-Code Settings:

; Ender 3 Custom Start G-code
M140 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; Set Heat Bed temperature
M190 S{material_bed_temperature_layer_0} ; Wait for Heat Bed temperature
M104 S140; start warming extruder to 140
G28 ; Home all axes
G29 ; Auto bed-level (BL-Touch)
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder
M104 S{material_print_temperature_layer_0} ; Set Extruder temperature
G1 X0.1 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; Move to start position

    Eine zweite Gewindespindel bringt nichts wenn die eine wobbelt. Es gibt soviele Leute mit deinem Problem gerade mit chinesischen Gewindespindeln und chinesischen Druckern 


    1. Ist dein Bett richtig manuell gelevelt (ohne den Bltouch). 

    2. Für mich sieht das immernoch nach Z Achsen Problem aus. Miss doch mal den Abstand des Musters und schau ob das der Spindelsteigung entspricht. Falls ja, versuche deine Z Achsen Spindeln gerade einzubauen oder so einzubauen, dass sie hin und her eiern können ohne die x y ebene zu beeinflussen. Einfach nach Lösungen googeln z.B. https://the3dprinterbee.com/de/z-wobble-z-banding-ender-3-v2-pro/ oder
