Prints are unleveled with edge popping up

Recommended Posts

Try to print with the nozzle temperature as cool as possible. And try putting a fan in front of

the printer, to remove the heat as soon as possible. On very small items, I sometimes gently blow compressed air onto the print to cool it down faster. (Warning: only use compressed air from a compressor, never from a spray can: they may contain highly explosive gasses instead of air, and you don't want that on hot nozzles...).

More cooling will not eliminate the effect, but it will reduce it.
