The great return of stringing. Why?  

Active Member

I was able to set my MK2S very well. No stringing, no oozing at all.

Then I moved to another house and now I'm getting a lot of stringing with the same filament spools. See photo

Is it possible that the humidity caused this? I was able to print the same model without any stringing!

Moisture absorption can definitely contribute to stringing, yes. Also worth confirming that you re-ran the XYZ calibration after the move since the physical parts can get jostled around.

Yes, I can confirm that was the problem... Thanks!

I had already done calibration. 

I dried filaments on a heater for one day and now stringing is widely reduced. In UK the wet weather is a big problem!
