Grindy patches on filament

Recommended Posts

Recevied my UM2 a couple of days a go, totally new to all this 3D printing, had a problem with blocked nozzle to start with, managed to clear that, and seated the bowden tube firmly in to the print head so it does not move up and down, blue clip not really needed, printed the robot ok ish, and the ear ring file on the SD card, 210c, 60c bed, 50mm/s, any other settings I should note here?

Noticed some grindy looking patches on the filament as its moving along the bowden tube, I guess this is from the feeder at the back of the machine, and wondering why this is happening? my little white things on the feeder are at the top position

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
