Brim is full of blobs


Recommended Posts

Posted · Brim is full of blobs

I have a Voxelab Aquila printer and I have been using the Cura program to slice and create my files.  My first few prints were great and didn't need supports.  Decided to print a dice tower that needed supports but they were too thin to adhere to the print bed so the print was bound to fail.  I decided to add a brim to help the thinner supports stay on the print bed but the brim is coming out in blobs and causes the nozzle to hit the bumpy areas and lift off the bed.  I've checked the level of my bed numerous times but I'm still having issues.  Is there a setting I need to change that I don't know about cause I'm a newbie?

    Under quality there is a "Skirt/brim line width" check to see what that setting is as I maybe wider then your nozzle width.

    Also there is a "initial Layer Line Width" which is a percentage.
