Problems with first layer and OS of printer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Problems with first layer and OS of printer


I have recently gotten into 3D printing.  I purchased a Monoprice Select Mini V3.

When I turn it on and it shows the  IIIP  splash screen, it has V51.266.2  on the bottom.

Is this the newest "operating system" for this printer?


Also, when I start a print job, the printer acts like it is not pushing out any filament.  I have adjusted the nozzle so that it is very close to the bed, but still, when the print job starts it takes a while for it to start pushing out material.  By the time it does, it's at the end of the support for my print job (there is no support for my print job).

Has anyone else had this problem and if so, how do I fix it so that the material starts coming out as soon as the print job is starting.


I hope this all makes sense.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
