[Sticky] help me please with these waves. I'm new to this. Ender 3 Pro
after printing for about 4 weeks without any problems, suddenly the prints came out like seen in the pictures. They look like they are producing some kind of waves. I had this result with different Filaments (PLA).
What I did so far:
- Exchanging the plastic Extruder with an aluminium one
- Changing to a new nozzle
- Leveling the bed accurately
- Tighten all screws (altough they didn't have to)
- Playing with temperatures
- Adding up to 20% to the feed
Nothing helped. What else can I do? Did someone have a similar problem before?
Hey, thank you for your help and the links! I figured out what the problem was and I would like to let you know, in case someone has a similar problem. Turned out that one of the two screws at the bottom of the Z axis was loose, as seen here.
Maybe it wasn't tight enough or it loosened itself over time. So, it seems that I did not really thighten ALL screws ?
@philosolver Hi, are you sure the problem is Z-axis lead screws? As the result looks like Z-axis or Y-axis, or the extruder issues. ? ? Looking forward to your reply. Are you sure that you did not adjust anything else?
Whit this upgrade I cannot print and i don't know why
