Problem while printing

 Hello everybody,

I am new in the 3D printing world and as I am doing my first printings I still need some advices from more skilled people!

The problem I have is that my printer will always stop at the same point because the filament gets stuck and winds up the motor of the extruder! Furthermore I cant get very nice printings, they are all brittle!

In the picture I uploaded you can see my printing (right) and a previous printing from the person that was working with the printer before me!

I think the problem is with noth enough filament coming out and therefore it gets then stuck in the motor wheel!

Can someone help me telling which settings i should change insimplify3D?


Thank you very much,


Fausta


Dear Montalbetti Fausta,


If you would be so kind as to tell me what type of 3D printer you own I will help you get better results.


Also if you could send me the factory file of a print you want to make so I can have a look at the print settings I would really appreciate it.



Dear Mircea.O,

I have the same problem with severalprints. The first 2-3mm the printer works properly, but after that I have the same result as the pictures above.

My printer is a leapfrog creatr HS.µ

Thanks!

Tijs.

try this: measure exact filament diameter and use correct value

do not use cooling fan

Filament Guide

ABS
  • Extrude at ~ 225o C.
  • Requires heated bed.
  • Works reasonably well without cooling.
  • Adheres best to polyimide tape.
  • Filament tolerances are usually tighter.
  • Prone to cracking, delamination, and wraping.
  • More flexible.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives or solvents(Acetone or MEK).
  • Fumes are unpleasent in enclosed areas.
  • Oil Based.
PLA
  • Extrude at ~ 180-225o C.
  • Benefits from heated bed.
  • Benefits greatly from cooling while printing.
  • Adheres well to a variety of surfaces.
  • Finer feature detail possible on a well calibrated machine.
  • Prone to curling of corners and overhangs.
  • More brittle.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives.
  • More pleasant smell when extruded.
  • Plant Based.
