Fine details are not printed correctly  

Active Member

Hello Community,

i have a Prusa i3 MK3s + and i am a beginner.

I would like to print the following part:

With the first layer, the printer always has a problem precisely at the top where detailed small curves are involved.
(Admittedly, it looks a little better in the picture. The rest of the prints were much worse, it had almost no shape (the tip) )

I tried the following:
- The speed of the first layer is set to 5 mm / s
- Bed completely cleaned
- Glue stick used

The speed has improved a bit, but as you can see in the photos, it is not ideal.

What do you do with such detailed prints that they succeed?

Welcome, bfreakout

the left hand end looks a bit melty...    could you try a lower temperature? 

does the first layer look OK in slicer? 
Can you re slice it with a 0.3mm first layer?

it looks like its having issues adhering to the bed, what material is it? I would recommend increasing 1st layer extrusion and bed temp by 5 degrees if you have the headroom. Also make sure z offset is not too close or far.
