3D printer users report a phenomena called “dimpling and pimpling” when a rod becomes
nonuniform. This phenomena 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 phenomena is eliminated when Vesconite Hilube bushings are introduced. Vesconite Hilube is a highly advanced thermopolymer 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.
