Rough Edges, why?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Rough Edges, why?

I'm not sure how best to explain what the problem is here but the edges arnt printing very sharp for some reason. Could someone please take a look at the photo and let me know what the problem might be. It would be much appreciated.

Ultimaker 2. ABS. 260°c. Print speed 75

If you are reducing the print speed to 75%, I think that you should reduce also the material flow, it seems to me that you have to much material on the edges and because of that they don’t print sharp.

This is the bottom layer. Does the next layer look better? For ABS try 245C instead of 260C. Also I recommend bed temp of 100C.

I'm not sure what the edge is - it might be overextrusion or dripping - leveling might be too high (but that will be fixed on second layer so try second layer). Might be flowing too freely at 260C.
