So just this past weekend, I assembled my new Ultimaker 1 kit!
It is all pretty much working great!
Just have a few questions that I need answered.
First is with extrusion. I feel like when I am doing the solid layers at the tops of my prints, or at curve rounded parts on prints, its almost as if not enough filament i is being extruded because you can still see some cracks thru the top layers. I am already using 0.8MM Bottom/Top thickness on Cura. Up from the default 0.6MM.
I heard that the screw, on the black piece attached to the extruder, helps with that but i've played around with that and doesn't fix anything.
Next is retraction. Have a decent amount of stringing. I was wondering what you guys used for your retraction settings, to reduce stringing, as well as what temperature you're printing with in general.
Maybe if you guys could just share all the settings you're using, when you get your best results with the UM1. If possible just screenshotting your basic, advanced, and expert settings would be really helpful. I know every machine will need different settings to get best results, but at least somewhere I can get a great start. Thank you so much for you team, and look forward to getting to know all you guys!
