Brim warping and first layer wrinkling


Recommended Posts

Posted · Brim warping and first layer wrinkling

Just received my new Ultimaker 3 and am having a whole mess of issues, but the current one is brim warping, first layer wrinkling and regular warping when I don't print a brim. I mean with a heated bed, I should not be having these issues fresh out of the box. Not for $3500. Anyone experienced this issue?

    Every print has had some problem. This happens to me when the bed is oily from a fingerprint or other contaminate. My Ultimaker can't print two times in a row on the same spot, the filament leaves a residue that keeps the next print from sticking. I have to take out the build plate between every print and wash it with dish soap. Then reinsert it and run the bed leveling procedure.

    Wow that's surprising. I've been able to print half a dozen times on the same spot. I use hair spray so all I have to do is go over it a few times with a razor and respray when I print something else.
