One side up in the air...?

Recommended Posts

Posted · One side up in the air...?


I'm having an issue where my print is up in the air on one side of a circle, can't figure out what causing this. 

Using Cura 4.8, Ender 3 v2 

Attached is pictures of the print and the settings I am using 

Any ideas...?


Thank you!

    You know your machine, but at 195 you're 15° cooler than I would have printed it.  I'll assume PLA which isn't known for warping.  It can warp if bed adhesion is weak, or if there is a draft from a heat register (or somewhere) blowing at the printer.  I see the bed is at 60 and that's OK, are you using anything as an adhesion promoter (hairspray or glue stick)?  Are you using a glass bed?


    But yes, it could just be a fingerprint or something on the bed.

    Thank you all, some more info:

    - Glass bed

    - PLA


    Next try I will try to use a glue stick and make sure the bed is clean

    Will also go up from 60C to 65C and see how it goes

    Watch the video.  60C should be enough but 60C has a different meaning for every printer because the sensor is "far" from the surface.  If you have an IR thermometer you want the surface at exactly 60C ideally.


    In the video the main issues are: glue, squish, temp, rounded edges.  You have the rounded edges down perfect, lol.  So it's one of the other 3.  Probably squish.  Watch the video.
