Wall of shame prints (print failures)

Postby Jetguy » Fri Feb 24, 2017 1:14 pm

Here's a print that failed last night. Classic "bird's nest" from multiple XY axis shifts. This was caused by me using higher than normal speeds and over extrusion which caused the nozzle to drag through the previous layers. Completely my fault for pushing my luck with speeds and failing to perform proper calibration. You aren't really in this hobby until you can do this a couple of times and you no longer get mad or upset.

my favorite was with ninja: made a big birds nest of a single 400um wide string of soft silky black fiber. I still keep it because it feels so nice.

What I'm hoping to start is people sharing good and bad prints. Not every print is going to be great and yes, we all want to show off success. I'm as guilty as anyone in that regard. But the point is, new folks have no clue what is good or bad, what can happen, what can go wrong. By building both success and failure outcomes you simply learn and it's a part of consumer 3D printing today.

first-> trying to insert a second color into the wall of a single layer thick vase-> don't orient the wall in the x axis, that is the axis with both nozzles so doing so will cause maximum headstrikes! (note website rotates images)

No Matter How Many layers you set for bottom layer in extruder, it only prints one if that is how thick you model is!

This was waiting for me this morning. It is supposed to be two sponge holders for my sink.

Turned out to be a giant, non-absorbant sponge thing.

this was petg, makes nice vases with the clear colors that are much tougher than pla, although I still coat with epoxy if going to fill with water
