Posted · terrible first and top layer

Hi everyone,

I am new to 3d printing. I have this problem. When trying to print this small part(55X35X5 mm) https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:31436

the top and bottom layers look terrible. You can literally see right through the holes to the other side of the part. I think the problem is in the cura settings but I can' find the right one.

Basically all of my prints have this problem. Does anybody have any idea what is causing this?

 

Thank You for your help

    Too much heat, poor cooling (?) ~ layers can't cool before next pass and they don't 'weld' together (and check/double check bed leveling) That has happen to me (on more solid pieces, so mostly bottom was like that), but learned to "KISS" it ?  - "back to basics" - try a simple print with simple default settings, then tweak up slowly as you learn what works on your set-up/prints ?
