My Ender 3 Pro is making shapes poorly

Recommended Posts

Posted · My Ender 3 Pro is making shapes poorly

My Ender 3 Pro is having trouble making shapes on its first layer. For example, the first layer of a circle it tries to make, the plastic will just get dragged along with the printer. I've done done my best to level the bed, so is it a problem with my settings? I'm using 1.75 mm PLA  and heating the plastic to 200 C and the bed to 60 C

 

Thanks

It's leveling.  Try pushing up on the bed or down on the nozzle and you will see it's better.  If you still have issues, please include photos.

It looks like your X axis is slipping.  Usually that's caused by a loose pulley.  Mark the shaft of the stepper and the pulley with a sharpie and print something and see if it is slipping.
