What temp and speeds are you trying to print with?

What is the result of your current attempts?

Remember that it's try to push twice the amount of plastic through the nozzle as a 0.1mm layer so you need to print slower of hotter or both.

It would really help if you post a photo of your result and mention the printing temperature you used.

You initial layer thickness should be about 0.3 not 0.0

That travel speed is really low. should be about 200mm/s

What temps and print speed are you using?

And photo of the print?

50mm x 0.2 layer x 0.6 nozzle = 6mm3 , thats 3 times the output volume compared to printing with the standard 0.4 at 0.1 layers. I would try going up to at least 220 celsius, maybe more.

there is no "best" temperature, it depends on what you want to achieve. For a strong mechanical part go a bit hotter (=better layer bonding) for a display piece you may want to stay a bit colder, but looking at the fact you use 0.6 + 0.2 layers it's probably not a display piece.

Do youmean to cut off 84mm from the bottom of your print? If your model is shorter than 84mm you will not print anything even if you temp. is 300!!!!!

It looks like it still has 6 hours print time so must be a big model

yes i have cut it, but the problem is not the cut, the fact that doesn't print in 02 happens with avery model
