Bottom layer?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Check this image. http://imgur.com/Lv6CODq

It is a best case scenario i am getting, the worst has small gaps. A few people in another post spotted the problem but that was when i was having issues not getting prints to stick. Now they are sticking perfectly.

They mentioned it could be a belt issue, but the belts feel pretty tight. How tight should they be? Could it be a bed issue. My prints now stick perfectly but should i try adjusting up the bed a fraction?

OK great, I have tried changing to 0.2mm to see how that comes out.

Potentially a silly question, but I have noticed when it is printing after a few layers it almost looks like the print is a bit too gooey and are not perfectly flat, so the head runs over them and then lays the plastic all fine but it almost seems to push it down and when the head moves off. the plastic pops up again. But it hasn't detatched from the glass at all.

    • "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.
