Couple of questions on settings

Recommended Posts

I am currently working with ABS on the UM2. I have a small issue where on the outside edges of my parts I am getting a small ball of extra plastic. It looks like after a retraction the system overextrudes slightly, causing the extra ball of material. Is there a setting that controls extrusion after retraction? Or does anyone have any other suggestions on minimizing these defects?

The rest of the parts look great, so I don't think I am overextruding...

Wasn't sure what the "z scar" was so i did some research, you are correct that is what it is. I guess there is no easy way to minimize it since its kind of inherent due to the need for Z to step. I can't use spiralize on most of my prints since I don't typically print single walled items...

    • 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.
