Need Help | Print Messing Up

Postby Brendan » Sat Feb 11, 2017 5:38 pm

I am having this problem during prints when the first few layers go so well then all of a sudden the print speed speeds up and it's lays filament down in the air, off course of where the print really is. Need help asap.. thank you guys so much.

What slicer are you using? Some of them have the ability to change print speed after a set number of base layers are printed, sounds like what's happening to you.
Never do anything you don't want to have to explain to the paramedics.

I would suspect a corrupt model. Run it through netfab. How does it look in the slicer preview? The slicer may perceive that part of the module as an area that needs bridging so it speed up.

It looks good. This problem also happened when Inwas printing the eiffel tower and Inwas only on the 15th layer.
