Problem with first Layer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

i have the Ultimake 2+ since last weekend and always the first layer looks bad.

I tried to calibrate the bed new, increase the tempeture from 60 to 70 degrees,

lower the first layer printspeed to 20mm/s.

Edit: it is PLA the silver from Ultimaker

You need to clean the class and try not to touch it as the oil from your fingerprints can cause this.

Some isopropyl alcohol or glass cleaner is best.

those bubble looking marks are where the filament it not sticking to the glass.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
