    Problems with Copperfill filament

    Hi! I am new to 3D printing. I have problems with Colorfabb's copperfill filament. When I try to print something, I end up with a few succesfull layers, but after that with a blob of plastic (see picture 1.). I tried swapping out the nozzle, cleaning up the hot end and changing the temperature and I am able to get something printed (see picture 2.), but it just crumbles like the nozzle would be clogged though it's not. I used the first time 210C on the nozzle and 60C on the bed, second time 195C and 50C first layer 40C to the rest. My printer is a Tevo Tornado. Can somebody help me?

    Thanks, Patrick

    I would try using a larger nozzle diameter if you are using a 0.4 try 0.5 0.6 the resolution won't be as good. You can also try printing at a slower speed and perhaps stainless steel nozzle. These filaments are aggressive and wear out nozzles faster. Or get a gold color filament non filled.

      Thanks for your answer! I will try printing with these tips and let you know what happens.

        Sorry, did not work. I use a hardened steel nozzle, but I don't have a bigger nozzle and I want to print figures and stuff like that so a lower resolution won't work for me. Do you have any other ideas?
