2nd layer issues...

Post by jslick_007 » Fri Apr 20, 2018 10:33 pm

I've been printing fine for a few months now, but just started having some issues with 2nd layer adhesion. I'm using the same default settings from MakerGear for S3D 4 on an M3ID changing only the extruder and bed temps. I've tried this now with both PETG and PLA a number of times. I've readjusted the Z-offset both cold and hot, levelled the bed hot using the wizards and both hot procedures result in 50% "string" and 50% "stick" as recommended. There was an issue where the left extruder was hitting the right side of the bed while priming the nozzle as a result of a warped factory glass plate, but I replaced it with a new factory one and still have the same issues. At a loss for next steps on troubleshooting. If the wizards didn't produce expected behavior, I would have suspected a bed levelling issue, but they come back just fine. Any other suggestions that I'm missing?
