  • 1st Post: Prints Quality Tuning

    Hello all,

    Given this is my 1st post here, I thought I'd better provide some background before staring asking questions.

    I'm a 3d printing newbie, got my 1st printer (Creality Ender 6) about 1.5 month ago. I believe I managed to set up the hardware and basic software (OctoPrint, Cura, etc) properly and am getting and OK prints but there are some defects I'd like to get rid of.

    Given the DrVax' videos seem to be the most informative, well presented and relevant to my set up, I'd like to show some photos of said defects and get an opinion on how to improve.

    Please let me know if it is OK to do.

    Thanks. Alex.

    Sure it's OK. It's not OK to make me jealous by having an Ender 6 😡....... I'm kidding of course.

      That is why the forum exits.

        Sometimes, your typos are hilarious, and this 1 is especially so: "exits" instead of "exists".

          Damn!

          And I need to add text, even damn, exists or the forum blames me for not using enough characters.

          I personally am impressed by Geit's use of the English language. He could easily convince me in text that he was an anglo of some sort.

        OK, thanks. So far my biggest puzzle is that I'm getting some sort of horizontal seam/line any time the geometry is changed. E.g. as you can see in the photos, it is more or less even until that line which looks like one "step" wider appears where the holes are or where L-shape starts. Would welcome any clues on how to fix that. Thanks

          Have you printed a set of 1-layer squares to check nozzle height?

            Never heard of this one... I use BLTouch and set my Z-offset so 1st layerd look good. Never heard of the test you've mentioned.

              I think this 1 explains it well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZRY6kunAvs

              And, of course, let's not forget Dr. Vax's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOxUrP2wOjA

                That test produced good 1st layers, don't think z offset is a problem...Any other clues? Thanks
