Lines not quite connecting to shell/outer perimeter

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

Slight issue i am having. I am printing 4 0.4mm thick squares, 1 at each corner of the bed. Rear left/right and front left are comming out perfect. Front right is having some issues, there's tiny holes where the lines aren't quite connecting to the shell/outer perimeter.

I have been tweaking that side for a few hours, nothing seems to fix the issue, not even releveling the bed, changing the z axis, etc...

Please advise.

Korneel is probably correct but it could also be bed leveling. I would try turning the screws just a little - don't do the leveling procedure - just turn the front right screw CCW a bit to move the glass up (closer to nozzle) by a half turn and see what happens. Also try experimenting while it's printing until those little holes close up.

    • "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.
