What's Wrong With Print?

Recommended Posts

Thanks! That explains why the faster I print the more bumps (or pimples) I see! At first I thought that was when the z-stage moved down. How about the funny ridges running around the circumference? Any explanation for that? :)

Some use 250 baud to print, but I think you can do couple of things to get less pimple:

1. Slow down (replicatorG can do that during a print)

2. Close all programs except repG.

3. Use an Ultimaker controller.

The ridges is because of the "layer height". The lower the layer height, the less ribbles you see.


Some experiments of mine, from left to right: 0.05mm, 0.03mm, 0.015mm.

I was thinking that we should compile a "Ultimaker print diagnostic kit" for everyone.

So we all post our bad prints up, and the experts can critique them and provide solutions and then we compile a online manual of sorts.

Is there such a project underway? :)

    • 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.
