Why does my filament pop?
When filament with moisture is heated to high temperatures, the reaction causes bubbles and popping sounds. Prevent this by using high-quality filament and proper storage.
How do I stop my filament clicking?
If you’re experiencing a clicking extruder, it could be that you need to slow the printing speed. This should allow the filament to heat and melt properly, ensuring a smooth flow. Indeed, slowing print speed is a common remedy to a variety of issues; when in doubt, take things nice and slow.
Why does my filament keep snapping?
3D printer filaments snap because they become brittle due to moisture, poor filament quality, or mechanical stress. So, if your filament breaks and you have no idea what is causing the issue, you can try applying different fixes one by one and determine the cause by process of elimination.
What does wet filament sound like?
It’s basically impossible to tell if a spool of filament is wet just by looking at it. Wet filament becomes a lot more obvious, however, when you try to print with it. The biggest give-away is if you can hear popping and cracking sounds when extruding.
