bottom surface


Recommended Posts

Posted · bottom surface

The bottom of the pieces I am printing are unacceptable. I need a finish on the bottom  (pictured on the left) that is the same as the top surface (pictured on the right). I know the grooves have support structures in them, I can clean them up. 


I am using a creality cr-10 v3, the  4.82 slicer, printing with wood PLA filament, nozzle temp at 200, bed temp at 60, using a brim for adhesion. My bed is a glass bed.


I am new to 3D printing so please speak in terms of someone that has more years behind them than in front of them. 


Thank You

David White

    It looks like not enough squish on the first layer.  You can try adjusting the "Initial Layer Flow" to 120% to compensate but it's really a "leveling" thing.  The nozzle is too far from the bed to get a good squish and weld the extrusions together and that is why you are seeing all the gaps - the extrusions are remaining round instead of being smooshed together.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
