Posted (edited) · Can't get my settings right

Hello all. I am very new to the 3D printing world, and I am having some problems with my prints. I have watched loads of videos, read some articles, and even talked to ChatGPT which has given me a good base knowledge of what some of the settings do and which one to change but I have got to the point where I no longer know what to change go get a cleaner print. I have got my prints to print okayish but they are not at a quality that I am happy with.


I do understand that it changes depending on what you are using and what you are printing so there is not one setting that fits all but I am hoping if I give my settings and show images then someone can give me some advice or just tell me what I have done wrong.


I am using a ANYCUBIC KOBRA NEO which I have checked is levelled correctly and I use painters’ tape to have that bonus adhesion. My PLA is OVERTURE PLA MATTE. I have attached screen shots of my code as well as Pictures of my prints.

    I would recommend sharing a UltiMaker Cura project file, while the screenshots of settings help it does not really answer most the questions everyone will have trying to help you.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
