Is this under extrusion??

Recommended Posts

IMO the maybe top layer is not thick enough, and it could be some under extrusion in the body of the print, hard to see from the photo.

you should post all of your settings to help with diagnosis, also what extruder feeder are you using - the standard one ?

I can see in the walls of your print some underextrusion here and there. The top is hard to tell what the issue is - it looks like you only have 2 top layers so I would thicken that. Please post:

print speed, nozzle temp, layer height.

For example for .2mm layers you don't want to go faster than these speeds:

20mm/sec at 200C

30mm/sec at 210C

40mm/sec at 225C

50mm/sec at 240C

    • 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.
