[Solved] Printing problems as Z increases

As my Z increases I get the print issue as seen in the attached photo.

I'm printing on a Mini with a 0.6 nozzle, Bondetech extruder and heat break upgrades.

This happens on only two sides of this print.  The other two sides look perfect.

Could this be a frame alignment issue?

Best Answer by Nikolai:

Looks to me like over extrusion. Check your slicer settings, maybe you missed something for the 0.6 nozzle configuration.

Is this the only item on the plate?

Have you tried a different filament?  This could be a number of things to include hydrated filament.  It could also be an extrusion issue.

I was printing with Prusament PLA Army Green.

I will try a different filament.

I will post the results once done

Like said above by Nicholai, it would be a bad idea to check your settings again.  I can’t yell you how many times I have cussed a filament for not sticking to find out the PETG I was print was using PLA settings or the wrong Z offset.

How about slowing down printing a bit? I read somewhere on their page or manual to slow down printing at higher heights through Tuning menu. Question is what's higher height 🙂 This does not look overly high. I know it's not a solution to an actual problem that may be there.

I finally figured out the fix.

In PrusaSlicer, I turned 'Detect thin walls' on.

I first printed with another filament that resulted in the same problem.  

I set the Extrusion multiplier to 0.92 and it was just a little bit better but not that much.

I then Thoroughly dried the filament at 122 F for 6 hours with no change.

I'm not sure why I tried turning on 'Detect thin walls', but the print came out awesome.

Thanks for everyone's help.

One last note.  I was printing at 0.35mm Speed setting.
