Under extrusion? Help me out please

Recommended Posts

I'm not seeing the classic signs of severe underextrusion. Are you refererring to the fact that the wall is not well bonded to the infill and top layer? I would guess that's probably due to the outer shell cooling down before it gets around to adding the infill. It could also be due to your very thin wall curling away from the body.

I can think of a number of tweaks that might help. "Infill overlap" as suggested by Dodgrr might certainly do the trick. Or, raising the filament temperature a bit, increasing the shell thickness way more than what you have (I like 1.2mm when I want a high quality print), reduce layer thickness to 0.1. Some might suggest playing with the fan, but I'd be wary of that.

In fact I'd do all of the above.

very weird.. kinda looks like a "material availability" issue, maybe crank up your print head temp a few degrees, could try tighting the feeder tension a bit too after making sure no plastic bits are cought in the teeth of the knurled wheel. impressive note-taking btw!

    • "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.
