I am fairly new to 3D printing, just got my Snapmaker last february and have been learning about design softwares and printing since then, which I find very interesting.
However I am facing a frustrating situation which hope any of you can help me to sort out.
A few days ago I decided to go for my largest project so far and I think it did work well. The projects lasted a bit more than 14 hours and there were no issues with the process at all.
However as you will see from my next picture
The surface of the printing got some holes so I decided to try Simplify3D, which provided very good results in terms of quality of the walls, I believe it is due to its different way of structuring the printing but unfortunately I have not been to finish the project again.
Its starts very well, the walls look very nice but around 70% of the project the Snapmaker stops extruding printing material.
When it first happened I read some articules and figured it was a clogged nozzle, replace it with the replacement I received and felt relieved that the Snapmaker worked again.
I thought it was maybe because the head was the one I was using since the printer arrived so I decided to start to print the project again with the new head.
Again it started beautifully and after several hours of nice printing the same problem occurred. Suddenly there was no more material coming out of the nozzle. Which is very frustrating after having spend all that time.
I know now that the nozzle clogged because I was able to clean it with a thin wire using the procedures described in this forum and others and the printer is working again.
I have also been reading about this kind of problem in various places and they talk about the temperature, the quality of the filament, the dirt on the filament, but do not really think I have seen the solution or what to try in order to commence the project once more.
I do not know if the issue if the height of the project?
Why with the yellow PLA it worked and now with the white it does not? Both are from Snapmaker, i.e. the same manufacturer
I do not know if this is because I am using now Simplify3D to generate the G Code?
Any information you can give me on the subject would be very much appreciated!
