My First print - Any advise?

Hello! I i have received my Mk3S+ yesterday and here is my first try,

I did basic xyz calibration and first layer adjustment.

I am totally new in this field.

What do you think? How could i improve my prints?

 

Thank you

Best advice. 

Master the first layer first before anything else, and always make sure your print surface is spotless, hot water and soap and dry on a radiator, or acetone once a week and 99% IPA for routine cleans.

Enable 7x7 bed leveling as well.

Tweak your first layer as required, it is not a set and forget setting. 

Just print and you will soon learn from your mistakes, that really is the best way. 

If you get really stuck, ask for help. 

Tank you very much!...

Sure looks like a frog to me.  Does it look like something different to you?

😋 yep! It is definitely a frog, my goal is just to know if you can see simple fixing issues that I could tackle or just some way of improvement..

It looks ok,  (Certainly a Frog and a whistle...lol) although it is rather difficult for someone else to improve your prints, it very much is a trial and error thing 3D Printing.  We can assist when things go wrong, not so easy when things look ok.

Work through Life Adjust my way until you get a rock solid 75x75mm sheet.  If you can pull the lines apart, or if when you put the sheet up to light there is light poking through between the lines then keep on tweaking.

Make minor adjustments to your first layer, and you will begin to get a feel for what is too high and what is too low.

Best Advice, just enjoy it at this point, improvements will come through experience.

Tank you very much!...
