Well i decided to print anyways and the first layer went down smooth, but the next, rough, weird, but looks good for my purposes, better than top surface layer lines anyday. a fortunate accident!


Ill post pics when its finished.

Well heres how these came out just took photos with a flash to highlight the interesting top layer. I havent had another try as im not sure exactly whats going on but i think its basically laying down the filament too high. Looks good though, and top layers adhere ok, but do come apart with force so they arent as strong. But from and art and beauty perspective totally acceptable. Green glow fill pla on top of tough pla.
