Is this a dirty nozzle

Recommended Posts

Yes, I mean the two holes. There is one on the other side as well. I can't tell if they just appear as the filament stretches as I remove it, or maybe there is something in the nozzle. But I would expect if there was something in the nozzle, the holes would look like lines as I pulled the filament out over the obstruction. Or maybe it's voids in the filament? It is MatterHackers Pro Series PLA which I think is pretty good stuff. The outer surface of the filament is perfect.

    • 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.
