TROUBLESHOOTING

Since 3D printing is what we do, Tractus3D already came across a lót of printing errors.
Therefore we can safely call ourselves an expert in failing. We know what can go wrong and - even better - how to solve the problems. That saves you a lot of research!

UNDEREXTRUSION

Printer does not extrude enough filament.
Space (gaps) between the perimeter and the infill.

LAYER SPLITTING

The object is split when the layers cool down at a different rate.

LAYER SHIFTING

When the layers of the object do not align properly.

PRINT DOESN’T STICK TO THE BED

The first layer does not adhere properly to the bed.

STRINGING

Thin filament strings that look like hairs.

WARPING

Some parts of the object start to curl upwards.

BLOBS

Small lumps on the printing surface.
