Left side of prints vs right side and flow rate?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Left side of prints vs right side and flow rate?

Hello, on my prints I've noticed left side of my skirt has gaps until i Z hop the Z axis to get lines  to join together.

The right side i can Z hop .75 but still get gaps on the left, I have to Z hop to .125. I heard increasing flow rate will work. When increasing flow rate will that increase the skirt flow rate as well as m actual print ?

.4 nozzle, PLA, 205 nozzle temp, 65 bed temp.

Hi, from what you are saying, as I interpret it, your bed is not level i.e. there is a bigger bed to nozzle distance on the left so the filament is not getting sqished into the bed. Best solution is to get it level! Also I assume your bed is nice and clean all over.

 

Yes increasing the flow rate will affect the whole print unless you using print control software , e.g. RepetierHost, that allows you to modify flow in real time. I do that all the time using 70% flow for the first layer then transitioning to 100%.

 

I have no idea if the latest version of Cura has this capability.
