Finally working, is my first print ok?

I’m completely new to 3D printing. I adjusted the Pinda up a bunch as it was set too low initially. I basically brought it as close to the 1.5mm requirement as I could with the shims I had, and still had to go down .775 in Live Z. Does this need any fine tuning or is it passable until the machine gets some run time? Thanks.

You need to go back to the first layer Z calibration, you are too high, it needs to be squished more.

At the end of the calibration you are aiming to print a single layer *sheet*. It should be possible to peel it off in one and fold it without the threads seperating. If it breaks into lines it is too high, not squished enough. If it is a single sheet but with wavy lines or drag marks on it you are too low.

For most people it pays to use 7x7 mesh bed levelling.

Many beginners have problems with the built-in first layer calibration routine. There are alternatives, see this page by a regular poster here:

and look at this thread:

Cheerio,
