Brand new S3 printing issues...


Recommended Posts

Posted · Brand new S3 printing issues...

I have a brand new S3, not even a week old. Using the included materials, i.e. Tough PLA, and default settings within Cura, please see the attached and let me know what is wrong with the printer? The "blobs" in the first image appear on the back, i.e. towards the rear of the printer. In the second image the "waves" appear towards the front. This is what I was printing: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:398548

Thank you!

    Printing slow solves most issues, so select carefully the profile in Cura, a fast or draft profile is often not the best choice.


    Which profile did you use?

    I used the default profile, just trying to test the printer out, and left everything at the default settings in Cura.


    Oh, OK I see, default, but 0.2mm which looks like fast, I get it now... I didn't notice the custom options.
