Nozzle scrapes the previous layer when repositioning


Recommended Posts

Posted · Nozzle scrapes the previous layer when repositioning

Hello all,

Pretty much what the title says...


I have a Lulzbot mini, using PLA+ from eSUN. After the initial layer is deposited, the nozzle will scrape over the surface of the previous layer, which ends up ruining the print. I have already re-calibrated the Z-offset using the console in CURA (Lulzbot edition). My knowledge of the firmware is limited, so I don't really know what to do at this point (thinking there might be something wrong with the z axis or smth). I am interested to hear what others might think the problem could be. I've learned a lot from this community so far!


Might be worth noting that I have increased the build plate heat to prevent warping (65C).


Any advice is much appreciated.
