First couple layer issues...


Recommended Posts

Posted · First couple layer issues...


i find myself having cura issues and I’m not sure what I did, but my issue has just recently started and could use some guidance to fix.


I have turned off all supports and things like rafts or brims. When I print the first couple layers act like a “raft”. They will separate after the print is done. The last print pulled right off showing the triangle infill. It’s like the first couple layers are only barely sticking to the infill. Sometimes it only partially separates. The rest of the print is fine. I’m using a 0.2 layer height. This happens with different pla or petg filament. I have the fan turn on during the 2nd layer. I have no issues with the part sticking to the print bed.


pla is set for 205c, 60c

petg is set for 245c , 70c

 Any suggestion would be appreciated.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
