How Do I Get Rid of fine spider threads between parts?

Postby Explorer74 » Sun Nov 12, 2017 5:05 pm

I love my new M3ID, but I get very fine strings as the printer jumps from one area of the print to the next. They are very fine like spider threads. Fairly easy to remove unless they are in a hard to reach spot. Is there a good way to remove them? Like a solution that will dissolve the fine threads without damaging the detail of the print?

The folks at Simplify3D have some very good trouble shooting guides. Here's the one you need:

I am already working on prevention, but some prints, like the Klein Bottle vase still get some fuzz. I was wondering if something like fuming would dissolve the fuzz without damaging the print detail.

There are only a couple dozen different materials you could be printing. A chemical solution will depend rather heavily of what filament you are using. if you are REALLY careful, you may be able to clean them up with a flame:

Try a hair dryer or heat gun. Works a treat on PETg where stringiness is a problem for some prints.

lower your print temp to reduce the fuzz but not so low you have adhesion issues. lower your temp 5 deg at a time until it goes away
