I recently purchased the TAZ 2.1 and I’m rather new to 3d printing so please bear with me, any help is greatly appreciated.
After a couple of successful prints of the stock octopus and some smaller parts I started with a bigger model, which is around 4"x4"x5". Everything starts off fine but then the layers start coming apart at random points, starting at about .5 inch from the bottom.
I’m using the stock ABS material that came with my printer. Software-wise I’m using Slic3r and Pronterface, but I usually just print from the SD card. I tried adjusting the layer height, print speed, fill and couple other settings but so far the result has been the same throughout my three tries. The model is a bowl shaped part with approximately 2mm thick walls.
I read this problem might be caused by low temperatures so I did my best to wrap the printing area in a plastic bag to trap the heat but the results were the same.
I’d appreciate any tips on what to try next.
