Artemis 300 whiskers

Post by felich » Wed Sep 25, 2019 4:46 pm

I have been getting whiskers in some of my prints.
I am using Cura 4.3 but got them on 4.2x also.

This photo shows a print that just goes around the edges with 100% fill so I would not expect the extruder to need to move across the print.
I'm sure it is some setting in Cura, but I don't have a clue.

Can anyone help me trim my whiskers?

That's a phenomenon called "stringing". It can happen if the temperature for the material you're printing is too high. I take it you're using one of the SeeMeCNC Cura profiles? What material are you printing with?

I'm printing with PLA from SeeMeCNC item #50146.
Here are the pertinent Cura 4.3 settings.
Right click on the image and "open link in a new tab" then click on the image.

Try backing off the temp 5 degrees.

To tune this for a filament, you should print two small cylinders about 15mm in diameter about an inch apart. It's a great tool to get rid of stringing. Start at 195 and see how that goes - if it still bad, bump it down another 5 and see how that goes.
