Re: Not getting smooth top in calibration square

Well I started with the width calibration originally, then did the height....but was getting the odd results. As it turns out my old settings seem to work. So I'm not sure if it was a ghost in the machine or something...Nothing had changed in the setup...but since this all happened I cleaned the noz...

Re: Not getting smooth top in calibration square

I had an old profile and that seems to be working better...extrusion multiplier was at .85 and the filament diameter is 1.74....This seems to be working at the moment so hopefully ill get a clean print...

Re: Not getting smooth top in calibration square

So that worked for the overall calibration square but I noticed something odd...

I'm basically printing a rectangle, a base for a circuit board, and what I am getting on the initial outlines are dots vs a smooth line...hopefully the picture helps:
