Layer splitting

Postby Tigerchick » Mon Oct 29, 2018 10:24 pm

I have been having an issue with some of my prints. I am getting a layer that splits but seems to happen on taller prints vs shorter prints. I am attaching pictures of the latest item it printed. I am using matterhackers build series PLA which seems to print better at higher temps currently printing at 224c. It seems to only happen once during the print then continues normally. I am at a loss as to why it does it. I am new to printing only 2 months in so trying to figure out what the problem is. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Too me it looks as if you are printing with a nozzle temp a little too high. a nozzle strike or extruder skip can cause this. here is a good site to check out https://www.simplify3d.com/support/print-quality-troubleshooting/

What is your infill? It can be also cooling issue or temp. shrink. Check your bed also. It could be Z axis also... in some part can be not leveled right. What about platform additions? Raft, brim?
