Hi there,

    I am new to 3d printing and am having issues figuring out to get clean prints.  The bottom sections of this egg are not good, but the upper layers are beautiful.  This happens when I printed small and large.  Help please.

The reason the bottom is ugly is all due to overhang. The printer cannot cool the print sufficiently. What you could try is using supports especially when you print them with pva. This will make it look much better.

Ok thanks, I will try using pva and see what I get.  I had thought the printer could handle that angle without.
