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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
