Strange stringing effect around print  

New Member

Hi everyone,

I'm totally new to 3D printing, and I received my preassembled Prusa i3 MK3S in the mail yesterday.

While testing it, I noticed there's an odd stringing effect around the bottom of the prints. Attached is a photo of this when I tried to print the bed level test, and also when I tried to print the Prusa logo (after about 10 minutes it separated from the steel sheet, and I think the two issues are related).

If anyone knows what's going on, I'd be really thankful if you helped a newbie out!

Your first layer if to high.

And clean bed with dish soap .

Both settings are to get filament stick better.

The first layer should be pressed down a little bit.

Lowering the extruder using Live-Z fixed the problem.
