  1. I'm very new to 3D printing and I just got a UM2 that I've been enjoying learning how to use.  I've been tweaking some settings here and there, but I would like to ask for help in understanding what settings I should adjust in order to improve this my print of the bathtub boat



    • Print at 75% of the original model size
    • Sliced in Cura 3.2.1
    • Maker Shed PLA
    • Nozzle temperature 210
    • Build plate temperature 60
    • Profile set to low quality
      • 15mm layer height
      • 1mm wall thickness
      • Retraction enabled
      • Print cooling enabled
      • 60 mm/s print speed
      • 120 mm/s travel speed


    I realize that I selected "low quality" for print, but are the results in line with what you you expect of a the "low quality" setting?  I can try again with a smaller layer height, but I'm not sure layer height is the right thing to start adjusting at this point.


    Please check out the pictures below and let me know your thoughts.
