strange thing

Post by neilv »

Hello,

I have a problem with my prints, does anybody know what i'm doing wrong?
The word HOT en the circles are the problem, there is a kind of "ghosting".

There is nothing strange with it and maybe you are not doing anything wrong. The effect is the mechanical ringing of the moving parts of the printer. You can see it not only on the circle and the HOT but also on the very left edge of the printed part. That's the same effect, you may not have noticed it since it's in straight lines parallel to the edge.

You may want to check if the belt tension is ok or something is loose. If there is no trouble maybe reducing printing speed could help, i.e. to reduce the acceleration when changing head/bed movement direction.

Going bowden-style (a lighter hot end to move) also makes these things better.
