Strange Blobs when I print


Recommended Posts

Posted · Strange Blobs when I print

Sorry if this is something obvious, as I am new to 3D Printing and could not figure out why this is happening. Just switched to Cura from Simply3D as well as initially from FlashPrint as I wanted to be able to do more advanced stuff, which Cura provides (i.e. different infills per area via support blockers, etc...).

I tried matching the settings from S3D and FP as close as possible, but I am missing something. The same STL prints fine with S3D and FP [same PLA and Temps], but when I slice it with Cura, I sometimes get random blobs that expand around the extruder and stop the print. Is there some setting I am doing wrong?

Any help with what I am doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.
