Problems with Print quality ABS

Postby blue.hills » Wed Sep 05, 2018 3:19 am

Hi,
I have been printing the same part and gcode for some time. The most recent time printing this part and also subsequent times after I have been having an issue with the quality of the prints. Do I have a printer part failing, how can I diagnose this? I have Bondtech extruding mechanism and Hatchbox 1.75mm ABS plastic (both of which were unchanged variables when my print quality had been great). I am really confused, see attached pictures.

Again thanks for any help, I just need to diagnose this.

Would you like to share the .data file here so that we can see your print settings?
BTW, normally we will put the fan bottom cover on when printing high temperature filament.

Hi, by the .data file do you mean the .Gcode? And I guess ABS wouldn't count as high temperature filament? The main confusing thing to me is the fact I've used the printer in this exact configuration in the past with no issue, same .Gcode

The fact the only changed variable is runtime makes me suspect some component is worn down or not functioning correctly now.

I mean .data file which is created together with .gcode file with complete slicing. It can show print settings.
ABS is a kind of high temperature filament, as it has high shrinkage rate due to temperature.

Okay, I can work to get that file. But it seems to me this is clearly a printer wearing issue, since I've been using the same code since day one (back when I had no issues printing)

Okay the .gcode has been stored only locally on the printer. I went ahead and made new .gcode and a .data file and have to upload them from my laptop. I will know in 18 hours the result of printing this code and will post pictures. This forum is not letting me upload with the file extensions so I will .zip the data file (says gcode too big to upload though). It looks like I compressed the gcode small enough with 7zip though to upload too!

Printed with that new generated Gcode, and still have the same issue with quality. But going to have to redo that code I sent already since it printed on a raft this time and I can't have that.

From the settings you shared, I see that you are using the default High Quality ABS settings.
Have you ever tried printing with lower nozzle temperature to compare the results?
