Cura 3.1 and Creality CR-7


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.1 and Creality CR-7

I have a Creality CR-7 using Cura 3.1. I spent 12 hours tweaking and the prints still have poor quality.  I'm new so not sure if I should try a different slicer or maybe someone has a profile that works.

    If you post your Cura settings we will be better able to help you. For starters the primary ones are

    Layer height & 1st layer height

    Print speed and 1st layer print speed

    Bed temp and 1st layer bed temp

    Extruder temp

    Is retraction on

    Nozzle width

    line width

    wall width

    Infill % and infill speed

    Cooling %


    Which material are you using and manufacturer


    When you say poor quality a bit more info would be helpful, especially some pics! Which bits are poor quality - when you say poor quality what do you mean, gaps, stringing, blobs rough surface, poor circles or straight lines, etc.?
