Re: First print

I figured out the problem. My PLA filament was getting jammed in the extruder so I was getting sparse flow, then nothing. I have been trying to find an optimum temperature for this filament.

First print

Hi,

I started my first print and for a while it went pretty well. I'm trying to figure out what happened to the upper half of the print (photo enclosed). Would this be a temperature problem?

Thanks,

Marty

Re: Y axis setting

Unfortunately the solution was to move the left front plate bracket so the extruder wouldn't hit it. So I have only three brackets holding the bed. :(

PLA temperatures

Starting my first print with the PLA translucent light blue. I noticed that I had to up my temperature to 195 C. Does that seem right to everyone. Does anyone have a table of PLA temperatures for the various filaments. I know that they vary a bit, but I don't remember by how much.

Y axis setting

Just got my TAZ today. Z and Y axis were way off. Z axis was about 1/2" off the glass. When homing, the nozzle bashes into the front left bracket. How can I adjust the x and y axis settings.

Thanks

Marty
