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.

    • "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.
