Hello- I have a CR-10s and have been getting some weird print failures on my last 5 prints and have run out of options and need some help if you guys don’t mind.
I am printing sidebars for my Daft Punk helmet at 0.2mm, 100 percent infil with PLA at 205-210 with a bed of 60 degrees and sliced with Cura. The object is pretty large and I have done many prototypes in the past but I have been getting weird glitches with the last 5 prints (see pic) where I have a perfect print for a while, then the extruder starts to make like a crumbly dust on top of the print then the Z axis lifts off the print and starts laying spaghetti. Sometimes it is a few millimeters (see pic), and one time it was over an inch (see video link below). I have no clue what is happening. I even tried thinking it was bad G-code so I reverted my Cura to the older version (3.3). Could any of the below be the culprit?
- Stepper motor/stepper driver overheating?
- Should I put a heatsink/fan on the X and Y, or on the stepper driver boards?
- Bad STL/OBJ export from my 3d modeler?
- Bad slicer settings/G-code?
- Electrical surges?
- Control box overheating?
Oh and BTW I have trammed the gantry and confirmed level after so I am pretty sure it’s not a bed or Z axis issue. Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance for your help!
