Double shell lines, bad circles and first layer not sticking

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I'm new to 3d printing and recently I bought an Anet A6. I read many guides and settings and printed 2-3 models after many attempts. I want to print this model https://www.dropbox.com/s/opb7mvzoxky47ey/Crown.stl?dl=0

My result of the first layers is this https://www.dropbox.com/s/y60wwepsifqnuwl/IMG20170711112438.jpg?dl=0

So the 3 problems I face in the title are double outline (even if I have the same shell thikness everywhere), I can't print circles (from the sides it makes them like square) and most times the first layer is not sticking even if I adjusted the bed many times.

Also I have my PLA at 230 and the bed at 70. Otherwise there is no way for my layer to stick as I have airconditioning in the room and maybe this colds it.

Thank you in advance. Ask me for any settings or tell me if there is a way to mass copy and paste them here.

You realise you're on a forum where 99.8% of users are Ultimaker owners, right? ;)

Seeing something similar on an Ultimaker I would diagnose it as backlash and tell the user to tighten the short belts that run the X and Y movement. For your printer, not sure. But search for "backlash Anet A6" and see what that turns up.

    • "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.
