Explanation: In a color print job, streaky or striped parts are easy to identify (see photo below). The streaks or stripes are caused either by Core buildup on the print head, a failed print head, or an electrical issue within the printer. With a monochrome printer, this is harder to see, and in fact often shows up as weak parts, or parts that delaminate.
Delamination (layers splitting apart) may be due to a print head that is caked with Core, or a pause in network communications, or a manual pause of more than 15 minutes.
Solution - Both:
- Clean the service station.
- Ensure the printer has Cleaning Solution.
- Clean the Fast Axis Rails of any debris and reboot the printer. See Section, ’Clean The Fast Axis Rails and Carriage’.
If the problem persists,
- Clean the pogo pins and the print head contacts.
Additional Solution - Delamination
Check your PC settings. The printer may be pausing as it waits for additional data from the PC. While pausing, the printed part begins to dry and as a result the next layer does not stick to the last layer printed. Your PC should be dedicated to 3D Print. Your PC Power Management software should be completely shut off.
