Prusament PLA problems

Hi,

I am getting the following problems (see images below).
Any idea why these PLA blobs appear?
I have the newest firmware, ran the calibration wizzard, using prusament PLA.

apreciate your help.

RE: Prusament PLA problems

Is this a newly set up printer or have you recently changed the nozzle?

It looks like plastic is running down from above the heater block.

Check your nozzle is inserted like this:

See especially under the heading 'Final inspection'

Cheerio,

I think your heatbreak and nozzle have a gap.

Gap

I had similar problems a while back. It definitely seems that there is a gap in the hotend assembly.

Maintenance Needed

It's older PINDA so not new setup, I'm going with Improper nozzle Install.

The layer shifting could be a symptom of the leaking nozzle, however it could also be a separate issue that needs to be addressed.

 

This is not the fault of the PLA.

Yes, the gap was the problem.
Reassembled everything now it is back to normal.
THANK YOU very much!
