    Thin filament line

    Hi

    So I have a 1.mm nozzle I want to print something big with heavy lines..
    The filament comes out very thin like a thin line with tiny balls more like a pearl necklace.

    Attached is a picture with my setting someone told me would work good..
    Anyone know what is happening?
    Thanks for any help..

    First I would reduce the PLA temp to around 200-210C. 245C for PLA seems to me an extremely high temperature.

    My PLA prints occur between 192-202C though with so many variations of PLA you may need a higher temp than I use.

    Second I would increase the Layer height to .4 and maybe reduce the print speed by 20-30%.
    Top and bottom layer thickness do not need be any thicker than twice the layer height, a layer thickness of 10 times seems a bit much

    I will try that.
    On my filament roll it has the temp at 245 and bed 60.
    thank you

    thank you

    This seems unusual to me so I did some research. (Are you sure it is not some other type filament)

    You may try printing a Temp Tower

    You are right about that..
    I read the label wrong, it is celsius.

    Thank you..

    yes we know it's celsius - but are you sure it's pla ?

    Unusual for pla to be printed above 230.
    The only pla i have that prints best 230-240 is the new ULtra with nano-diamonds. And that's noticeably harder and denser than normal pla.

    RC is bang on for everything else. :-)
