Re: Extrusion Skipped Blips

This is where getting to know how the slicer works is quite useful!!!! Your printer looks as if it is either stopping extruding too soon before the end of a layer....or it is not starting to extrude as soon as it should at the start of a layer. Knowing how the slicer works, you will instantly realis...

Re: Overlapping lines

You must still have a setting that affects overlaps set. Best thing, if you can recreate this exact thing, would be to save a Factory File and post it on here so someone can take a look at your settings, etc File menu......Save Factory file. The problem with such a question is that if you were to as...

Re: Is there an option to compensate for the increase in the first layer height?

So....if your first layer is printing thicker than you think it should be printing...and lets confirm that your first layer is printing 0.1mm thicker than it should, irrespective of what the setting for the first layer height is, then you need to lower the mechanical position of the nozzle in relati...

Re: Just curious... WHY is the bridge layer in this supported model?

I'd worked out similar figures...but a tad larger.

Re: Squiggly interior wall in front of inside perimeter on 3dBenchy

mrbodiddy.... Print your part in vase mode. Printing with no infill is not really the way of creating hollow parts....which is why all those trying are getting crap results. You should be able to up the extrusion width to say 0.6mm and get decent results. You'll need to tweak a few settings to get a...
