Greg, that setting worked great for a week or so. Not sure what has changed. I'm still using -0.25 Shell / Initial Layer Horizontal Expansion and now the elephants foot is back.


Any other setting that would override Shell / Initial Layer Horizontal Expansion?

    I'm sorry I can no longer help.  I just deciphered your screen name and I'm a Goldwing guy.


    If I was inclined to help (which I'm most assuredly not), I'd say to check things like "initial layer line width %" or maybe "initial layer flow".  Maybe it's something simple like you accidentally deleted the Minus sign.


    I searched through the settings for "initial" but nothing much came up that would cause elephant's foot.  Sometimes when using a brim 1 stripe of plastic will stick to the bottom of the model and make it look like elephant's foot.  Check initial layer bed temp and printing temp too.


    A bit of advice from the Honda guy - grease your splines and duct tape a fire extinguisher to your final drive.

    Here's my 78 and 06.  I've had the 1800 longer but sometimes it's nice to throw a leg over something a lot lighter.

    If your using dual print head make sure you are adjusting the setting on the proper head since they you set different value fore each. As Greg pointed out the initial horizontal expansion should be the seeting to adjust.

    Good luck!
