Uneven PLA extrusion

Recommended Posts

That's severe underextrusion. Maybe 30% of what you need (one third).

I'm thinking you might be printing too cold or too fast. Here are recommended speeds for .2mm layers. If you are printing .1mm you can print twice as fast and so on:

20mm/sec at 200C

30mm/sec at 210C

40mm/sec at 225C

50mm/sec at 240C

If you don't know your printing temp or your printing speed, get out of Cura quickprint mode to find speed. And go into TUNE menu while printing to get temperature.

Indeed, that is way way too fast.

Also, why are you turning the bed heat off part way through the print? If you do that you can actually have the parts pop off the bed before the print is done which would ruin the print most likely.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
