Bed too low or too high?

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to get my filament to step to the bad. I've re leveled several times but with the same problem I changed the layer height to .2 mm printing at 215゚ with a 60゚ bedtemp. First layer is grainy and nozzle eventually pull print off bed. Any ideas? 20171007_144740.thumb.jpg.a0dd8f47eafc8d6d326cadb0c020d5e0.jpg

Ignore the leveling procedure at this point - it's probably level - you just need to move it closer to the nozzle so turn the 3 screws CCW by a half turn.

Even better learn how to make the bottom layer stick like hell - watch my video:

    • "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.
