Hello Alessio,

Try printing with a higher temperature. What kind of plastic is it and what temperature did you use? If you use for example a temperature of 220 degrees Celsius and the fan is on, the resulting printing temperature will be around 210 is my experience. So put the temperature in a way that it never comes below 190 for PLA.


Kind regards,

Marcel


Kind regards
