Apollo x layers not sticking  

New Member

Hoping to find some help with a frustrating printer.  I have teo mk3s printers and I'm trying to print with Apollo X asa.  One printer does fine.  The other printer using the same settings, fails everytime.  Its looks like the first 5-15 layers print fine, then they stop sticking together. 

I'm printing with 255c nozzle and 90c bed temp with 5mm retraction.  Both printers are in an ikea lack enclosure.  I've tried printing at 260c nozzle and 105c bed temp and a full height skirt but that didn't help.  The filament is not stuck.  I can print taller prints fine with pla.  I've tried prusa support about 6 different times and they haven't been able to help yet. The apollo x sticks like crazy to the bed so it's not a bed issue.

Does anyone have any ideas for me?


Thank you...

I do not know if this is the cause of the problem, but 5 mm retraction is too much. Try with a maximum of 1 mm.

Bear MK3 with Bondtech extruder...
