Need help here, I'm still new to 3D printing (~ a month). I'm trying to get my first layer right, and I printed a bed level test as you can see above, or attached.
I notice that the extrusion is consistently bad when it just completed the perimeter and start printing the solid infill. You can see the gaps on the top left corner of the golden box there. I don't see such a gap when I use another slicer (Flashprint), so I'm pretty this is something that can be fixed from a slicer setting. I've printed a dozen times trying to figure out which parameters in S3D that could fix this, but no good.
I hope one of the expert here could advise me what can I try to fix this...
Here's what I'm printing with:
printer: Flashforge Adventurer 3 (0.4mm nozzle)
filament: Fillamentum Gold 1.75mm diameter
And here's my S3D setup:
Extrusion multiplier: 1.00 - 1.10 (varying this doesn't help)
Extrusion width: 0.40 (following nozzle diameter)
Retraction: 6mm at 25m/sec (tried varying the extra restart distance from 0.0-2.0mm)
Coasting distance: 0.2mm
Wipe Distance: 5.0mm
Layer height: 0,18mm
First layer height: 100% (tried up to 130%)
First layer width: 100% (tried up to 125%)
First layer speed: 50%
Interior Infill Percentage: 20% (up from 15%)
Infill extrusion width: 100%
Temperature: bed at 55C, extruder at 205C
cooling: no (first layer)
Printing Speed: 60 mm/sec
Solid infill underspeed: 80%
X/Y axis movement speed: 80 mm/sec (tried 60mm/sec)
