My First Benchy 🙂
I just put my kit together over the weekend. Selftest was 100% okay and I did the first layer calibration to the best I could. Today I went forward, first with the Prusa logo. The top layer was a bit dissapointing, but then I read that that happens more ofthen with this model, so I went ahead with the Benchy.
I must say, I am not unpleased (at all) for a first print. To see a 3d model coming out of your printer is strangely pleasing/satisfying 🙂
However, the top layer is still off (as was maybe to be expected) and the bottom seems somewhat "squeezed". So, the first thing I think of is nozzle height and that is is too low at this point. Am I right? Please giev me your opinions so I know which way I should be looking at to further improve.
I printed directly from the SD Card and did not alter any settings. I pinted with the provided PLA provided with the kit.
Best Regards and thanks in advance / Greetings from rainy Holland,
Read up on the "life adjust" thread for a much easier to use Live-Z calibration procedure.
Extruder Linearity Correction will help with vertical surface quality (salmon skin effect on hull).
Check belt tension for left to right ripples on box.
Many thanks, I will go through them!
