Results of the print cube. As you can see it isn't very smooth. I did not print any shells with the print or a raft.
Attached my slicing settings.
What do you mean no shells?
I think ideamaker defaults to minimum 1 shell.
Try printing with 2 shells. Most people print with at least 2 shells.
Also reduce outershell speed down to 15mm/s
What are your filament settings under Printer > Filament Settings?
Although unlikely, the filament might be old/bad.
Try HatchBox PLA White. It's one of the easiest PLA to work with.
Also attach the gcode file. Not sure what you attached. Cant open it.
I mistyped earlier. I meant I printed without a raft or brim. I am using the default of 2 shells. My outer shell speed is at the default of 25mm/s. I will try reducing it to 15mm/s and see what happens.
Print > Filament Settings:
Diameter 1.750 mm
Density 1240 kg/m3
Price 30.00 $/kg
I was wondering if the filament sent might be the issue. I will buy some hatchbox PLA and see if it improves the results.
I have the STL file of the test print box. Attached inline. One of the prior files was a .zip file of my exported template so all settings would be view-able.
So many settings that can be changed and make an impact I try to only change 1 or 2 at a time each print.
