Double shell lines, bad circles and first layer not sticking


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Double shell lines, bad circles and first layer not sticking

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.

    Oh, i didn't know that, as the Cura 3D software that was with the printer is from ultimaker. I will search it as I don't even know what is this that you said. Thank you.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
