Is the print surface covered with web-like strings?

If your print surface looks like a spider threw up filament on it, there could be extra drippage from the nozzle.

Solutions:

Solving stringing can be as advanced as tweaking the settings for travel or enabling traction or as simple as just trimming off the unsightly strings.

  • Trim the strings: If you don’t want to redo your print, you could simply just trim off the strings by using a scalpel.
  • Activate Retraction: Retraction prevents the filament from dripping even after the head has already moved on. It retracts the filament back into the nozzle.
  • Lessen the minimum travel (mm) parameter: If the standard retraction feature still doesn’t fix the problem, you can reduce the minimum travel setting. Keep subtracting in 0.5mm increments until everything’s okay.
