I am a beginner and need some major pointers...

Posted · I am a beginner and need some major pointers...

I have been reading around and trying different things but I am so overwhelmed I have no idea what the issue is. I am using and Ender 3 Pro and need a lot of guidance. The print is very bad, and even didn't fully print to the top. It was a normal stringing benchmark and clearly does not pass. Anything is helpful thank you for your time.

    Hi, @grouchyxd welcome to the forum.


    It can be overwhelming at the beginning for your first prints but I'm sure you'll get the hang of it quickly. 


    What your trying to print is very small which makes it a bit more difficult. 

    You may want to start off with something a bit bigger which will be easier till you get the hang of it. 

    It looks like this print is a bit hot and you may want to reduce the nozzle temp.


    Can you post the material and settings you used?
