great! downhill from here then?
You're just good at following instructions =) (After seeing 18 machines build, some running perfectly, some requiring a lot of tweaking afterwards, I noticed that all the machines with problems had been assembled wrong)
And those assembled wrong require tweak after tweak if not reassembled correctly as the tweaking usually exposes another problem. Congrats!
I've just had a few issues but I think they are plastic related rather than machine. I tried a cup off thingyverse but it was ripped off the bed after 2 layers. A reset on the bed level/z home and slowing the print speed for the first 5 layers sorted that, then I've been slowly cranking up the speed. How fast can you go? at 130% at the mo
If you are pinging stuff off the table, you are probably extruding just a little bit too much. Which roughens
up your top layer and makes the tip of the nozzle scrape across the surface. Try just a litte bit less.
So perhaps knock off 20 from the "steps per e" value (I assume you are using Cura ?)
I would advice to insert the right diameter of your filament in your slicer before changing your E steps.
Also make sure your first layer is pressed in the tape (slightly) so your print has full grip.
130% depends on how fast you set the Ultimaker to print in your slicer.
I've not measured the filament yet so I'm using the default 2.89mm setting. I've borrowed a vernier from work today so that i can set it up correctly when I get home.
you're very lucky.
your next 23 prints will all be dismal failures now
