Caught-in-the-middle extrusion

Recommended Posts

I'm running UM2 with Cura 14.03 and the latest firmware, the material in use is PLA Silver-Grey from Ultimaker. My layer height is 0.1mm, print speed 50mm/s and I'm using default PLA settings from UM2. My need is to print a solid (100%) object and I have trouble getting the extrusion right.

caught in the middle extrusion

The wall (both fully vertical and the one in 45 degree angle) is beautiful; it's smooth and virtually flawless. The screw hole walls are on the brink of getting over-extruded - there are problems if I pump the material flow up from 100%. At the same time, the bottom is seriously under-extruded. I can actually see rays of sun through it, even if the material is 2mm thick.

In Cura, I have set the shell thickness as well as the bottom/top thickness to 1mm - and the fill density is 100%.

Feeding of material seems to work normally. I have had similar problems with ABS, but not quite to the same extent.

Is there some setting which I'm missing? The problem seems to be mostly related to infill, IMHO.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
