3D printer users report a phenomenon called “dimpling and pimpling” when a rod becomes
non-uniform. This phenomenon is caused by the rod slightly lifting on one side and slightly
tilting on the other side as the extruder head moves from one side to the other. This is typically a result of wear to the rod.
3D printer users report that this phenomenon is eliminated when Vesconite Hilube bushings are introduced. Vesconite Hilube is a highly advanced bearing material in the Vesconite range, particularly suited to operating in wet conditions, including pump and marine applications. Combining low friction and low wear properties, Vesconite Hilube performs exceptionally well under difficult operating conditions.
