I am trying to dial my TAZ 6 for about a week now and there is two things I can’t seem two fix small ridging on the walls and bulging when the nozzle takes a sharp turn. I will leave the ridging issue for another post but here is a good example of the bulging issue:
I am slicing with simplify3D at a .2mm layer height and both prints printed 4 layers before I canceled the print so you can ignore the extra extrusion found at the top left of each corner as that is just the extruder stopping mid print and pulling off the print.
But if you look at the right print you can see a little bulging near the inside of the perimeter wall as the nozzle turns to make another diagonal line across the middle of the print. I didn’t think much of it but then when I changed the internal fill pattern from Rectilinear to Concentric I really noticed the bulging as it made this X shape bulging at each bend as it prints a bunch of squares till it fills in the middle.
I have played with so many settings, calibrated the hardware to the best of my abilities and googled around with little to no luck and getting a flat print.
I don’t think it is an over extrusion issue because I still saw it happen when I set the extrusion multiplier to 85% and you could see gaps between the line but still would see bulging on the corners.
Has anyone see this before and has some thoughts?
