Printing is going well for 10 hours, then sh** hits the fan.

Posted · Printing is going well for 10 hours, then sh** hits the fan.

Hello everyone,

So I started printing a frag rack this morning with petg filament. It's large, and takes all my printer's bed (Ultimaker 2+ connect). I had to abort and retry a few times to get a first good layer, but then it went well for the first part of the project (basically a plate with holes) which was about 10 hours.

Then when it started printing the legs, it all went to sh**. I had to stop the printing session as the whole legs ended up being a ball of cotton candy instead of real leggs, and can basically toss the piece I have.

What went wrong? For whatever reason, the base of the legs is hollow (see picture) I have no idea why, maybe that's why it didn't stick when printing?

Thanks for your help.
