Black ABS Extrusion issues

Recommended Posts

I had issues with some china ABS. the diameter was not constant and was causing a lot of friction in the bowden tube. If the filament get grind by the feeder you may have a similar problem. I have resolved my issue by changing to Orbi-tech ABS filament.

What is the diameter of that filament? What temperature are you using?

I am also using black um abs. I print at 250. I had 1 clog when I switched from pla to abs. Cleaned the heater/nozzle and it was fine again.

 

Thanks I guess it needed a little bit cleaning. I disassembled the head cleaned the burnt plastic. Worked fine again.

    • 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.
