Z Axis Lines

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am trying to print this object and lines keep appearing along the Z axis at different intervals, here are my settings, http://imgur.com/Sr3zVac

Layer height: 0.06mm

Material Faberdashery Red PLA,

Temperature 230

Bed Temp 60

Speed 30mm/s

material flow 100%

It looks like the material is failing to print fully on certain layers, I tried increasing the material flow to 120%, it smoothed the lines out a bit but nothing drastic.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Leigh

Well I wonder about a couple of things. Firstly your temp. must be too hot. I print Faberdashery red at 30mm/s, layer .200 at 210c; so that is 3X the amount of material at 20c lower.

Also I wonder how you set your print up to reach your minimum layer temp.? What is the temp and what is your infill setting? Also were you using 100%on the fans?

Did you do the under extrusion test with same filament?

    • "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.
