First few layers are blobbing, help please!

Recommended Posts

I have a Flashforge Dreamer 3d, printing PLA at 205 degrees for the extruder and 65 for the bed.  The first 5 or so layers of all of my prints have a very subtle but strange blobbing and then everything after that is smooth.  Any ideas?  I've tread leveling not only with the printers leveling but also simplify 3d wizard.  I also have retraction set at 2mm.

Attached is a picture of too prints up close...notice the first few layers are extra blobby then everything smooths out?  Any thoughts or suggestions?

    • "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.
