First Layer Bevel/General Quality

Recommended Posts

Posted · First Layer Bevel/General Quality

Hi All,


I'm having problems with the quality of a first layer on a fairly simple 3D print. I have a bevel al the way around the bottom layer once the print is completed. The bevel is uniform and seems to be the result of a setting rather than a bed sticking issue. I have attached some photo's showing the effect I'm seeng:


IMG_1642 - Bottom of Print showing bevel

IMG_1641 - Bottom of Print showing bevel and pattern of 1st layer

IMG_1640 - Top layer with ironing showing nice square corners and no beveling


I'd like to get the bottom layer flat and remove the bevel that I'm seeing


Has anyone any ideas on how I can remove this bevel and get a flat first layer?


Many Thanks,
