Not sure about anyone else but for me, perimeters weren't ever a problem but these settings fixed two problems. Density of the solid surface and adhesion. Thanks!CWAVE6K wrote: --snip--
...found that if I set the 1st layer height to 300 percent, 1st layer width of 100 percent, and 1st layer speed set to 50 percent I got better adhesion and coverage. The difference was remarkable.
I forgot that I had the machine speed at 150% in the control panel and still got a nice first layer. Using a sensible speed in control panel (100%) has resulted in reliable first layer adhesion. Note: I use a retraction zhop of .5mm and that seems to help preserve fine details like those found inscribed in the bottom of the retraction test model from the Make: 2016 3D Printer Shootout Models.
