Newbee = Print quality not as expeted

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Newbee = Print quality not as expeted

I am new to 3D printing. I have the UM2. Printing with PLA. I tried a few basic prints and these are the kind of quality I am getting. I am not sure what might be wrong or need to be  adjusted. I use the automatic method to clean the nozzle before every print and use the purple glue on the glass print plate.  I am using Cura software and printing on the high level. 20160601_075737_resized.thumb.jpg.d40672be5774927f8717e0604cd43942.jpg20160601_075751_resized.thumb.jpg.5fec624575175e710f259ba0cce63bbe.jpg20160601_075808_resized.thumb.jpg.21613f5921eb2b2b9caccae6d18a9670.jpg

Hi,

Where is the filament from ?

Do you know if the temperature isn't higher than 210 ?

Is your file OK ? I think you may have some problems on it

The first 2 pictures are 2 different attempts, right?

In the first picture, are we seeing the bottom of the print?

In the second picture, which side of the print was touching the glass plate?

The third picture is a typical problem. The upper layers of PLA cool more rapidly, shrink, and pull up on the bottom layers, causing the warping.

This resource will help you deal with that and potentially other issues you may have.
