  1. **PROBLEM SOLVED** OVEREXTRUSION I just tried one more test print with the same object file from Autodesk Fusion 360 and used medium refinement to convert to Cura. Within Cura I used all the same settings for Generic CPE accept for the Initial Layer Flow. After analyzing the bottom of the prints and creases on them I noticed that it looked a lot like too much filament was flowing with nowhere to go but on top of itself (causing creases) so I lowered the Initial Layer Flow from 100% down to 75% and yielded these results shown in this picture with clear PETG. This is my first test with
  2. I have done over 21 different test prints consecutively changing only one factor at a time to see what changes were made to the print when putting down the first layer. Moving the print to a new location on the print bed didn't remove the problem, it just continued to crease in the same direction (in accordance with the bed) as the previous times. When flipping the glass build-plate over the creases were identical. The bed was always cleaned with soap and water and dried before each test. I then started to change settings such as initial layer flow, initial layer line width, initial layer heig
  3. I have an UM3S and am using Cura 4.8.0 I am attempting to print an imported file from Autodesk Fusion 360. I am using Generic CPE settings with a 3rd party filament. My only problem is that when the printer is printing the first layer a skip or studder or something of that nature happens along the same line across the skin of the first layer creating an imperfection or seam all the way across it when there should just be straight lines. I have included photos to show how the filament creates this seam when it should be printing a straight line all the way across. It does not heavily affect the
  4. Thats not what my printer told me. Turn the thumbs screw until the nozzle is 1mm away from the bed, then further adjust it with the calibration card. Worked for me, good luck.
  5. Yes, I have found that tightening all 3 bed screws until your fingers want to snap so the bed is very low. Then do manual leveling in maintenance and carefully follow instructions only touching what it tells you to touch (ie thumbs crew, or contols) what helped me is I printed a 1mm credit card with a small handle to use as a spacer for the exact 1mm needed, this solved my active leveling problem hope it does for you too.
  6. I have just purchased the Ultimaker S3 and am very interested in an Ultimaker air manager for it. I am aware of the two enclosures available on the internet now though I think that I would want Ultimakers brand.
