Uneven layer

Postby DDDENGR » Thu Feb 13, 2020 12:18 am

Third print on my new Pro2. Using PLA that came with the machine, so far test prints were great. I just started this 40+ hour build and I'm concerned with the first layer. What would cause some of the layer to be lumpy, and other parts be perfectly smooth? Please see photo.

Thanks in advance.

I would recommend you to try increase Z offset a little more and see whether it looks better or not.

First layers are always fun, they show you how many high and low spot areas there are in your build plate.

When using Raise3D Premium PLA I onften use raft to remove this issue since the errors are caught in the raft. It is a workaround that might not work for everyone or every filament, but it is a solution more or less.

Might want to check your bed and verify that the gap between the nozzle and bed is the same over the entire bed.
