I could really use some help here. I am trying to print with ColorFabb XT and have been having an overflow problem, which creates an accumulation of material on the nozzle tip creating stringing and depositing random chunks of material randomly throughout the print. When I get the nozzle to 250 °C, the filament flows heavily by itself.
I have upped the print speed, retraction speed and retraction distance and results are getting better, but the problem is still present and my concern is the values are getting relatively high.
I am using a CR-10S Pro and my settings are:
- Print speed: 80 mm/s (I actually started with the recommended settings but they were all off)
- Nozzle temp: 250 °C
- Bed temp: 70 °C
- Retraction speed: 50 mm/s
- Retraction distance: 7.5 mm
I have managed to print some pieces that don't require much traveling since they are round and filament is deposited in a concentric pattern and also each layer didn't use a lot of material but whenever pieces have bigger cross sections and layers need to deposit more material or there is a minimum amount of travel needed, the problem becomes evident.
- Any ideas?
- Has anyone had experience with this material?
