Tips

1.Please do NOT start your print before checking your printer runs normally and keep the print bed and nozzle at a proper distance,
including the clean of residuals on nozzle.
2.Please ensure the filament is tangle-free before use and is secured each time after the end of printing.
3.MAKE SURE don’t let the open-end loose and spring back to the spool. It could lead to cross under unnoticed and could eventually
get stuck. ALWAYS secure the open-end. If it springs back accidentally, you will need to TIGHTLY unwind for 20 feet to fix any tangles formed.
4.Printing temperature may varies on different printers, extruding the filament beforehand for testing the best printing temperature
that is measured by smooth extrusion, which should be proper otherwise may generate the possibility of strings.
5.Near-end Extruder:Retraction distance 1-3mm,Retraction speed 20-30mm/s.
Far-end Extruder :Retraction distance 4-6mm,Retraction speed 40-60mm/s.
6.Please clean the feeding gear regularly with a toothbrush.
7.Nozzle wear is easier to happen in the glow in the dark filaments.
8.Please ensure the constant temperature in printing area in case the occurrence of edge warping and cracking due to the fast
cooling rate and excessive shrinkage rate.
9.For small print, additional fans are recommended to facilitate the cooling including the flexible filaments for averting undesirable
shape result from slow cooling at local area.
10.0.6mm or bigger nozzle is required to print the metal filaments otherwise it is to be blocked. And the nozzle should be cleaned
with cleaning filament or PLA after long-time printing in case of nozzle jam.
11.The common printer throat is equipped with in-built Teflon tube designed for resisting the blockage, and the printing temperature
should be within 260℃.
12.Printing parameters correlate with the performance, size of print, complexity and characteristics of filaments,therefore the best
print result demands users to find out the printing parameters that work with printer and filaments perfectly.

Questions

Cause Analysis

Directions

Blocked Nozzle

Diameter: over thick/thin

Replace filament

Printer: Gear clearance jammed

Clean gear

Gear: abrasion /insufficient bite force

Clean gear, strengthen bite force

Throat: deformed

Change new

Temperature: too low / filament burned or carbonized

Temperature rise / Clean the nozzle with thin iron stick

Stringing

Temperature: too high

Lower printing temp properly

Remnants surrounded the nozzle

Clean the nozzle before printing

Oozing when printer travel

Raise travel speed,retraction speed and retraction distance

Dark Spot

Remnants surrounded the nozzle

Clean the nozzle before printing

Impure filament

Change pure filament

Print Offset

Belt loose

Adjust the belt position to even out the belt tension

Polish rod being dry

Check the rods are clean and apply some oil

Malfunction of drive coupler

Repair or change a new one

Print Edges Are Warping

The space between nozzle and print bed is big

Narrow the space

Weak viscous force of coating on print bed

Change the coating or adhesive tape.change your print bed to one that offers better adhesion

Print bed temperature too low

Increase the bed temperature

Bottom layer printed too fast

10-20mm/s

Shrinkage rate is too big / cooling too fast

Keep the temperature, Slow down the cooling wind speed / close the cooling fan

Low Print temperature and fluidity

Improve the printing temperature of first layer properly

Cracking

High shrinkage rate / fast cooling speed

Increase print temperature / Keep the temperature / Reduce print speed / thickness

Bevel molded

with failure

Cooling too slow / printing speed is too fast

Accelerate the cooling / reduce printing speed /

increase wall thickness and filling rate
