Re: M2 Level Help

Re: problem with PLA print

So that is the bottom of the Raft that is on the build plate? I assume so since you said you use a raft. Your part is attached to the raft and needs to be removed from the raft. There are a half dozen parameters that control the raft and for the most part the raft is a real time and filament waster....
