Z Axis Lines

Recommended Posts

Posted · Z Axis Lines

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?

I was using 100% on the fans, I adjust the temp on the ultimaker settings.

Ill do the test with the other filament

Thanks

Leigh.

      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
