[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.
This is the only object on the plate.
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.
