I got my 3D printer from Creality 1 day ago. My dog off the SD card came perfectly, Benchy was also printed almost flawlessly. I used standard Benchy settings on all my prints.

Now I tried making a mask and it failed mid-print. When I saw it failing I stopped the print.

What do you guys think is the cause of this?

I printed with the following settings:

  • Resolution: 0.20 mm
  • Infill: 20 %
  • 3 walls with a line width of 0.4 mm each
  • 50 mm/s first time i printed it and 40 mm/s second time.
  • Combing OFF
  • Retraction enabled
  • Retraction distance:6 mm
  • 25 mm/s all retraction speeds
  • retraction extra prime amount 0
  • retraction minimum travel 1.5
  • maximum retraction count 100



Edit: I printed the mask again. this time I changed Z Seam alignment in Cura from user specified to random. It improved it a bit but it was not a successful print. second mask

    $\begingroup$ No, I didn't change any materials. I use PLA 50C bed and 200C hot end $\endgroup$ – GGCristian Apr 5 at 15:04
  • $\begingroup$ What about trying to print another benchy? That way we can see if it's an issue with the printer. $\endgroup$ – marcellothearcane Apr 5 at 15:25
  • $\begingroup$ i will do it tomorrow. Anyway, this mask was printed right after the benchy. The only problem on the benchy is like a line on the left side and some ghosting. I'll post a picture soon. $\endgroup$ – GGCristian Apr 5 at 17:54
  • $\begingroup$ What speed? Looks like printing too fast for the hotend to keep up. $\endgroup$ – R.. GitHub STOP HELPING ICE Apr 5 at 22:54
