Problem with first layer in Super Quality


Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem with first layer in Super Quality

I have an Ender 3 V2 with CR Touch Auto Bed Leveling Sensor and stock firmware

I can print standard quality with eSun PLA+ but I have big problems with Super Quality on getting a solid first layer.
My understanding is that the first layer is supposed to be 0.2mm which is what the Standard Quality uses, then prints 0.12mm for subsequent layers.


Watching the Z height on the display as it goes, when it does the nozzle clearing by printing a line on the left, Z height shows 0.3.  But when it then goes to start the print with a skirt, Z shows 0.1 which gives me grief with the bed level test print not sticking to the bed even at the beginning.
However like I said, printing in standard quality does work but for that, it keeps the print layer size at 0.2 throughout the print whereas the super-quality seems to switch to the lower print layer size too soon.


Any ideas?

I unfortunately hadn't tested printing Super Quality with the sample PLA that came with the printer.

      • 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
