Over extrusion and under extrusion at the same time?

Recommended Posts

I have a problem with my UM2.

Looks like I have over extrusion and under extrusion at the same time.

At 200C there are layers with under extrusion and at the same time there are blobs like there is over extrusion.

Increasing the temperature makes the under extrusion layers disappear, but leaves me with the blobs.

Decreasing the temperature makes the blobs disappear, but leaves me with underextruded layers.

On the picture (printed at 210C) you can see the blobs, and in one of the middle layers you can already see some under extrusion.

I do have a picture of one printed at 200C but I have trouble uploading it.

On that one you can see heavy under extrusion and blobs at the same time.

Printing at (much) slower speeds makes no difference.

Bed temperature (50C) makes no difference.

Changing filament (Ultimaker or Colorfabb) makes no difference.

What can I do to solve this?

    • 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.
