Ultimaker 2+ Connect print quality


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2+ Connect print quality

I just received my Ultimaker 2+ Connect (without air manager), my first ever 3D printer. I have followed all the instructions from the manual to get the machine up and running. However, I can't seem to get first layer success. I need a pointer to improve overall print quality. I have attached my log file below. I used Ultimaker PLA silver that comes with the printer, Cura slicer and pre-set setting

Nozzle: 0.4mm
Infill: 30%
Resolution: 0.2mm (Draft quality)
Adhesion: No

Support: No

    The first layer is not always nice, this could be normal and is covered with the next layers.

    But don't print with the Draft profile when you want wo have nice results, use the normal profile which prints slower.


    From the picture it could be, that your distance nozzle/bed is a bit too big. Try to level a little bit closer to the bed. But maybe it is just the picture.


    And additionally I would recommend a very thin layer of glue stick on your glass.
