I was able to get the bowden tube out and took 5 samples, 3 under extruded and 2 that measured slightly above 100mm. Will test everything hopefully Tuesday. Thanks for the help!

RE: Need Help diagnosing print quality issues
Thanks for the help. I tried your recommended settings, but the prints seem to have gotten worse. I’m going to try to calibrate the Extruder, but can’t seem to pull the Bowden tube out from the Extruder like they show in the MatterHackers video.
Need Help diagnosing print quality issues
I recently bought a Pulse 3D and need some help calibrating my prints.
Below are pictures of some test prints I’ve recently done. I thought my issues might be under extrusion / retraction related so I’ve played around with the temp settings as well as the retraction settings, but they all look pretty similar. The temp settings started at 260 (top left model) and went to 280 (top right model) and retraction went from 4.5 to 8.
My current settings are as follows:
filament: Pro Series nylon grey 1.75mm.
Diameter 1.72mm (measured with calipers), Density 1.1
Temp: 75 for bed and 260 for bondtech extruder with ruby nozzle
No fan cooling. Printer is also enclosed.
Retraction: Length on move 4.5mm, no Z-lift
Layer: Height 0.2mm, first layer 0.2mm,
Outer Surface: Perimeter 4mm, Top and Bottom 3mm
Fill density is 30%
Speed: Infill 30mm, Perimeters both inside and out 30mm
Non-Print Moves: 150mm
First Layer Speed: 25mm
Slicer is Cura in Mattercontrol
If anyone has suggestions on what I could do please let me know. Thanks.
