Posted · bottom pattern , Cura?

Hello,

I am getting this stripped bottom pattern in some areas, while other areas are pretty smooth. It is not the blue tape causing it:

It seems like Cura could be causing it, because when I prepare the print I get this graphic that shows in pink the same area (more or less) the problem occurs:

Any ideas? or better parameters to obtain a smooth base layer?

    Most likely your start height (Z endstop) is a bit to high. Causing the lines to be layed down too thin, causing the stripped pattern. (The 3 colors, pink, yellow, cyan, mean the same thing "infill" but are different sections of the infill)

    Thank you for the answer. I´ll try to set the Z endstop a little lower. I was trying to avoid warping by making sure the first layer sticks well.

    I am setting the Z endstop by placing a piece of paper between the nozzle and the platform and adjusting height until I can move it with some (little) resistance. Is this right?

    Do the rest of settings in the image look OK?
