Stringing / Oozing


Your print may have small strings of plastic where nothing should be printed.

  1. Enable Retraction in your slicer to have the extruders pull back the filament a little while the printhead is traveling. (Retraction is a setting present in most slicing software and is generally enabled by default.)
  2. Use the correct slicing profile available in KODAK 3D Slicer or KODAK 3D Cloud for the material you’re using. If you’re not using our slicing profiles, try lowering the temperature of the Hotend by 10°C at a time until you get the desired results.
  3. If you’re using the correct slicing profile for your material, traveling speed shouldn’t be any problem. But if you’re not using our profiles, try increasing the travel speed.
