Ripping/shredding on surface?

Recommended Posts

It kinda looks to me like it's not sticking quite right on that spot so it's lifting up. If you look at the bottom of the print when you remove it, is there an indentation there? If so, make sure your glass is really clean and consider adding a thin layer of glue to help with sticking. Also make sure you print the first layer quite slow.

Hi Kenneth, welcome!

Yes, usually the problem will sort itself out. It's also possible that you might have the head a touch too close, and be getting some back pressure build up that squirts out in a blob and doesn't stick very well. A video of the first layer going down might be helpful for diagnosis.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
