A too high nozzle or 3D printing temperature can quickly lead to visibly less beautiful 3D printing results. Read here the influence of the nozzle temperature.
Too high 3D print / nozzle temperature
The temperature of the nozzle during 3D printing is very important. A small change of 5 - 10 ° C in the nozzle temperature can visibly deliver other 3D printing results. When 3D is printed with a high 3D printing temperature, the filament becomes too fluid, so that it retains its shape poorly after the filament has been laid by the print head. As a result, the print layer does not have the correct shape, so that all layers that follow will not connect properly and subsequently change shape due to the poor substrate and the still too high nozzle temperature.
If the 3D printing temperature is too high, the filament does not retain the correct shape. This can also lead to very ugly overhangs and sloping surfaces in a 3D print. To find out more about this read: Overhang 3D-printen
The correct 3D printing temperature
The correct nozzle temperature during 3D printing is therefore very important. The ideal temperature is of course dependent on the material and the printing speed. At a high printing speed, the filament has less time to heat up and will therefore not be warm enough when it leaves the nozzle. This can cause exrusion.

3D printer settings per material:
3D Printer settings per material. You will be redirected to a page where all required 3D printer settings are explained per material. Choose your 3D print material and read everything you need to know to successfully 3D print with that specific material. Please note, the settings have only been tested on our own filament. A filament from another supplier may require different settings.
