Angle in vertical face mid-print

Postby JamesL_KC » Fri May 08, 2020 3:58 pm

This is the first time I've noticed this happen during any print, and am not sure what could be causing it.
For some reason mid-print the vertical face of this 1/4" (6mm) flange gets shifted to a different angle for the remainder of the print (see attached image).
It has happened on two separate prints in different printers (Pro2 Plus) with the same settings I always use.
Both in the original model, and the STL brought into ideaMaker, the faces do not have this angle change, nor does it appear in the sliced preview.

This print is PLA, approx 20in (500mm) tall and this is happening about 4in (100mm) from the first layer. Supports are being used for angles greater than 45 degrees. Extruder temperature is 203C with a bed temp of 60C

Is this a slicer issue, a machine issue, a G-Code issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It is hard to say exactly what could be causing the issue at this point. We may need you provide following information.
- What type/brand of material is the issue occuring with?
- Are you printing with top cover on or off?
- Can you please provide the Gcode for this model
- If you disable the motors and move the printhead around the X and Y axis by hand do you encounter any type of resistance or binding?

This happened with both Atomic PLA and Push Plastics PLA.
These were printed with the top covers off.
I was only able to attach the data file, the g-code file is too large to attach, is there an easy way that I can get the file to you?
Everything seems to move smoothly when manually moving the print head.

Seems you have increased a few speed settings which shouldn't affect much.
You can add some Z-hop to avoid the nozzle coliding with he model as well as the support structure.

I'll mess around with the speeds a little bit on the next few prints, as well as the z-hop.

Is there a standard recommendation you can make for the z-hop values and settings?

I haven't ran into the issue again recently, but I have also not been able to print as much in the lase few weeks.

Thanks for all the help.

Our general recomendation for adding Z-hop will be .15mm above the layer height. So if you were printing with a layer height of 0.2mm you can try your Z-hop value at 0.35mm.
