Could something about a model cause the printer to jam?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Could something about a model cause the printer to jam?

The jam wasn't happening until the model was updated to make the design in the middle slightly larger. I didn't change any of the settings, but now suddenly the printer is jamming. It jammed 2 times at the same spot; about halfway through the first layer, and a third time later on like maybe a few layers later. When I disassembled the extruder, it looked like heat creep, because there was filament stuck in the gears. But if I print a completely different model, it doesn't jam and is fine. See attached 3mf file, that's the one that's causing the jam. The printer is a Qidi X-Plus.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
