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,

        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.
