How to avoid Layer skips?

Hey there!

I cant get my latest Project running.

Either i get Bleeding into the other color or i get layer skips.

In the last case it was both.

My Printer Speed is 30mm/s on top Speed.

Reducing Speed to 20% when splicing.

The Purge Tower is 180mm (HUGE)

Splice Tuning for PLA: 1 / 0 / 1

Pings usually around 103%

Pongs around 99%

What do i possibly wrong?

Its my 4th failed Print (Print Time is 20h)

Greetings!

Thanks Ben!

Unfortunatley i cant see any clogs or somethins else.

I did indeed another Calibration print, which turned out perfect.

Splices are also very good.

This is driving me a bit insane :(

I will try to put more tension in the Direct drive extruder for the next print.

Shouldn nozzle clogs be visible in the Pings an Pongs?

Thank you!

Thanks for the updated photos! Agreed, the calibration print looks great. Yes, I'd expect clogs to appear in sudden shifts in ping values

Sascha, cool project. Definitely frustrating when long prints fail!

The layer skips almost look like nozzle clogs, have you had any issues with extruder skipping? Might be worth cleaning the nozzle.

I don’t see any bleeding in the photo, but certainly clogs/skipping would also offset the material position and bleed color.

If you can rule out skipping, have you successfully printed the calibration key-chain?
