I cant quite think how to describe the problem im facing, so searching for answers is proving difficult!
I have a FlashForge CreatorPro that I am extremely happy with. I have also recently upgraded one of the extruders to the MicroSwiss All Metal Mk10 hotend in order to experiment with more interesting filaments than standard ABS/PLA.
I have a particular project I am working on of a small part - footprint the size of your thumbnail. In ABS and especially PLA this prints PERFECTLY.
However, when I change to Taulman Nylon Bridge or ForumFutura’s CarbonFil at their recommended settings the print quality just goes to crap - what was once a sharp cornered, perfect miniature model of what was on my computer screen is turned into either a stringy mess, a blobby mess, or a combination of the two with really poor layer adhesion - so bad I can literally pull it apart myself.
I have tried increment the temperatures by 5 degrees in the full recommended range and either side of it and no changes seem to have been made.
I am using ReplicatorG and do really want to upgrade to something a little better - considering taking the plunge with Simplify3d.
My RepG settings are:
Fill - 50-100% (at this size, seems kinda irrelvant)
No. of shells - 0 (small part)
Layer height - 0.28 (standard)
Feedrate (mm/s) - 41 (for ABS/PLA this is perfect)
Travel Feedrate - 56 (for ABS/PLA this is perfect)
Print Temp - 210 (pla), 220 (abs), Bridge (+/-250)
Bed Temp - 70 (pla), 110 (abs), Bridge (45)
So yeah - thats my question, can anyone help me identify the reason why a file that I know prints perfectly in both ABS and PLA, looks like a Picasso when I so much as glance at another type of filament.
Thanks in advance!
