Color differentiation

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

gallery_36059_1662_172532.jpg

Every layer has a different color on the owl. What is causing this effect?

I know that you can achive this effect in woodfill by changing the nozzle temperature.

There was no changes while printing this object.

The print was done with PLA gold from colorfabb with no infill, 204c and 60c 0.12 layer height

I would like to know if this a normal thing or is it a problem?

p.s Before this print, I was printing with black ABS.

I had the same thing happen with a silver PLA, I thought it was a result of very slight temperature differences during printing with changed speed at certain layers

some colours are more susceptible of temperature changes.

you could test print a small cube, to see if it happens with even surfaces.

    • "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.
