Printing problems

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing problems

I purchased my first 3d printer yesterday. I have the Monoprice MP Mini Delta. I successfully printed the cartoon cat that came on the printer's micro SD card, but all of the other objects I have tried to print don't work. The extruder prints about 5 millimeters above the platform so nothing sticks. Everything i run through Cura doesn't work.

Load your model and select it. At the leftmost side of the screen you will see a column of seven icons. Place your cursor over the 2nd icon down and you will see it is the "Move" tool. Click the icon and you will see three rows for the x/y/z axes. They should all be zero but your z axis probably has a value. Set it to zero and problem solved.
