Re: Favorite way to prep your bed surface for printing PLA?

From the comments on here, it looks like my extruder is way too far above the bed. I'll try squishing it.

Also I noticed that black PLA sticks much better than my translucent green PLA. Anyone get those differences between colors?

Re: Favorite way to prep your bed surface for printing PLA?

I use 0.35mm height and width for 1st layer, z offset 0 with endstop being 0.25mm above bed. No fan for first layer and a speed of 15mm/s. Also is the infill...

Re: Slic3r Support

Increasing extrusion width didn't help, its just too strong.

I tried Meshmixer and its great! Exactly what I was looking for with overhangs. :D

Re: Slic3r Support

Thanks. Yes I was also looking for the gap option but some setting dont seem to change anything.

But just now I tried increasing the extrusion width of the support material and it looks to give more gap, will try it out.

Slic3r Support

Hi,

I am having trouble with removing the support material with using slic3r, they get stuck pretty good.

Anyone have recommendations? I read that simply3D is good but I want to see if its possible to get it working with slic3r or any other free tools first.

Re: My assembly findings

I just pressed the belt clamps on something hard (like my bed's metal frame ;)) to put the nuts in.

Anybody found that the pulley height on the motors had to be adjusted?

Also why is the flimsy electronics box attached to the frame from just 1 panel with such a strong bolt/nylocks? Seems strange.

Re: Really Getting Started - Purchase Decision

I have purchased it and waiting, thanks guys for the help.

What is the power input for the printer? 120V?
What should I do if the power source here is 230V? Buy a step down transformer?

Do all the necessary tools come with the printer?

Re: Really Getting Started - Purchase Decision

I forgot to ask, is it safe to operate the printer in your bedroom? Are the fumes non-toxic and do they leave a long lasting smell? Will opening a window easily clear out all the smell after a print?

Thanks in advance ;)
