My first layer seems to be off

Recommended Posts

I have a UM2 and am printing with Matterhackers 3mm PLA. My first layer seems to be consistently off. I have tried to re-calibrate the print bed and there is a little effect but not a big difference. My concern is that I seem to get 'pillowing' or what I assume to be some sort of pillowing at the top but seems to be pervasive throught the layers of the print.

Being new to 3D printing, I am happy to post whatever information would be helpful in sorting this out. Thanks in advance for helping, I do appreciate it.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
