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:
