Bad print on one side

Recommended Posts

 

Did it look like that before the shroud? It really looks like you had no fan. Something is really messed up. Can you post a photo of your nozzle - I want to see if the tip/shoulder is worn down.

Also it would be nice to get a video of it in action - when it is doing the "support" for the hand.

I just threw out 4 things - please think about all 4 (test the left fan, was it better before the shroud, nozzle worn down (particularly by brassfill or carbon fiber), make video).

Ok, so I realized I had the fan installed backwards, so air was flowing the wrong way. lol

This is the new print after I flipped the fan.

Same print settings as above, except I increased print speed to 45 mm/s.

Any recommendations to improve my print quality?

190C

30 mm/s

Printed multiple objects

All other features the same

Used a cube as a sacrifice print via the "print all at once" feature to allow the bot more time to cool down between layers.

The prints are excessively sticking to the bed, so I accidently broke off the "legs" of the bot when attempting to remove it from the print bed. I beleive the excessive adhesion is due to the bed being too close to the print nozzle, I will lower it for the next print.

Any recommendations to improve the print?

    • 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.
