First layer issues

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am having some issues with the first layer of the print. Please see the photos attached.

I had leveled the bed and attempted to print the same file numerous times but the same issues appears.

Did this happen to anyone or has anyone seen this and has a solution to the problem?

Nozzle is .4 and I am using glue stick method on the glass surface for better adhesion.

Thank you,

Milo

I'm not very familiar with this issue but other's have said this is a problem for certain filament colors and manufacturers. Have you tried a different color or brand filament? Is this white filament? Or Gray? I have the most trouble with white filament (all manufacturers). I think white filament has a high amount of talc in it - not sure.

Yes it is white filament, on previous grey PLA filaments it did not happen or it was a very tiny spot here and there.

The Layer height is set to 0.2mm and initial layer height is set to 0.27mm

I think Neotko meant you should adjust the height of your glass bed a tiny amount. The three screws that adjust the bed height are 0.5mm per full rotation. Try rotating all 3 of them CW 1/3 turn to move the bed down by 0.1666m.

Even better, try turning them that much while it's printing the bottom layer and you should see instant results and learn from that and iterate.

neotko is very smart and has done more prints maybe than anyone on the forum. He has several printers going all week long, all year long.

    • "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.
