Re: Second nozzle sits higher than first. Is this right?

Re: First layer sticking issues

From the extruder temperature, I presume you are using PLA. Are you using the cooling fan? At which layer? One thing you can check is the Z-height. What are your Layer1 and Layer2 Z-heights, as you print? I usually see 0.18 on Layer1 and 0.38 on Layer2, which is what I want ,(0.20 difference), for a...

Re: PETG lifting up on large prints

what can I do to have a stable large format print???? I have had some materials let loose of the bed, but only on tall, skinny parts. Your broad, flat part should not be an issue. Two possibilities I can think of: Your bed is not clean; Your nozzle is clogged. I have rarely had a problem with PETG ...

Re: PETG lifting up on large prints

What is your bed? Kapton tape on glass? Is it possibly not clean enough? Off hand, it appears your initial gap between bed and nozzle is too large. The threads of filament appear more round than they should be if they were being squished enough. You might try adjusting your Z-axis knob to reduce/fin...
