Re: drops and blobs

I am still having terrible results with regard to blobs. I can not print anything. Each and every print is loaded with blobs (see photo). I was having so much success early and now the programs seem to be doing very odd things without any input or programming on my part. The blobs happen at the star...

The problem is I did not program this (not knowingly) and yet it is doing it. Please see attached photo the right side is where it ...

Might you know the default (PLA) settings for these: + coast (how far before the end of axis motion to stop feeding filament) + retraction (how far to back out the filament before doing a rapid move to another area of the print) + return from retraction (how f...

drops and blobs

Why do some prints have drips and blobs? Is this a dirty heat tip? or a programming error?

controling where the extruder travels

I notice that the random printing in areas of my parts would be better served if I were able to control the location sequences. it wastest alot of time going back and forth where it would better serve time if it printed in closer proximity to each print. This jumping back and forth is time consuming...
