Clogging or something else?

Post by Mic_Hazelburn » 07 Jan 2017, 12:41

Okay Guys,

as you can see in the picture, what is wrong and what can I do?? For the first time I got my hBp, this happens in 95% of my prints and I wasn't been able to print very much.

It happend in the beginning or in the middle - further I don't come very often :(

So, what can I do?

It is the PLA from beeverycreative, Bed 55°C and Temp 205°C. Same issus with 215°C and 225°C.
Print speed 120 - 100 - 75 - same problem. Nozzle 0.6mm.

I hope you will understand what I say because my english is not that good.

First off try to lube your filament for example with conoala oil. A small amount before each print is enough.

Reduce the printing speed, at this moment I'm printing at 35 mm/s because the hellobeeprusa has an heavy x-carriage and it will also prevent that the extruder is skipping steps because the filament doesn't need to get pushed fast into the extruder.

Also try to reduce the retraction settings because the default settings don't work. I use the following setting: retraction distance 1mm and retraction speed 40 mm/s.

For the temperatures I think 205-210°C will do the job and for bed temperature 55°C.

Also you need the level the bed as good as possible because a wrong alignment will cause some back presure into the hot end and this will eventually lead to a clogged nozzle.

watch your Z screws whilst the head is moving left and right if there wizzing round then your setup is off, adjust the hight of one side or the other, and the level of the bed, i know it auto levels but the closer you get it to perfect the better the results

Glad to hear you solved the printer's problems! Have you tried more prints? Does this method work consistently?

Maybe you should make an entry in this post: https://beeverycreative.com/forum/viewt ... ?f=8&t=244 :)
