Hairy prints?

Posted · Hairy prints?

I've had an UM2 for half a year now and generally everything has gone smooth. Lately, however, I've been getting very hairy prints... yes... hairy...

All my printed parts are full of little hairs and fluff. Not just the normal spikes you get every now and then where the head is lifting. But tiny tiny hairy fluff in the colour of the filament. Most of the hairs are attached to the prints but lots of it also ends up falling on the build plate. After printing I need to have extensive hair removal sessions... cutting.. rubbing... washing... and it is getting worse.

I've tried with different filaments... different colours... materials.. PLA..XT... Always the same

Any ideas?

    I guess it depends on the material. I get more hairs with one color of a high quality filament brand than with another color of the same brand with exactly the same print settings. The nozzle of my printer is clean.

    Can I revive the topic, please?

    And give this forum yet another chance?

    My problem is well-illustrated here:

    Faberdashery Desert Tan, 210C, 50mm/sec, .2mm layers.

    There are other types of the filament giving me the same trouble. What can be recommended?

    This is not hairy prints it's stringing :)

    Increase travel speed to 200 or 250mm/s. Decrease temperature as much as possible. Make sure retraction is enabled

    @didierklein - sorry for the delayed reply.

    I think it is hairy, indeed. The travel speed is 300mm/s, retraction is 5.5mm/35mm/sec.

    And I'm having even more hairy prints sometimes, just didn't care to take a photo of them.

    I think travel speed is max at 250mm/s are you sure?

    Maybe decreasing the temperature would help?
