Hello. I am trying to figure out, how to improve the quality of my prints, because I am constantly left with scars & scratches on the surface.
I referred to the Quality/Troubleshooting guide, and if I have scars like those pictured above, it could be
A. Too much extrusion
B. Need to increase vertical lift
I have tried several adjustments to both settings. right now I am trying to operate an Anycubic Mega X and here are my settings for that printer.
I've adjusted the "Retraction Vertical Lift" from 0.5mm, to 2.0mm, even to 4.0mm and I still end up getting small blemishes on the surface and if I decrease the Extrusion Multiplier with it, I get nothing but blobs & strings all over the print, delivering a messy result. I tried adjusting the retraction distance from 4.0mm to 5.0mm and 6.00mm and a barely noticeable difference.
I'm just having trouble getting a good quality surface/top layer, and I need to know what the best settings would be to make it look good?
I've owned 3 different printers in my 2 years of 3D Printing, an Anycubic Mega X (Current), a Monoprice Select Mini V2 (Current) & a Creality CR-10. All printers are having the same scuff marks.
How do I adjust the vertical lift & retraction settings without leaving blobs of filament and strings all over the surface? Thank you.
