I’m in the process of learning with my new (to me) Lulzbot Mini and was hoping for some suggestions on trouble shooting a problem I keep running into when I’m trying to print with ABS.
The first is that the skirt doesn’t seem to want to print easily. If it’s at a line count of 1 then it tends to be very thin, hardly stick and get caught in the extruder head as it passes between pieces on the table. I tried a thread count of 3 and got this:
Once the printer starts to print the actual project it seems to go pretty well except for…
The other problem I have which is that the bottom of my prints, that are touching the surface of the bed, are a little wavy and seem to have a corner that is coming up away from the bed. Otherwise my prints seem to be fine.
My settings for the head and bed temp. have been 145 for the head and 115 for the bed. (I’m a bit worried about a draft that I haven’t boxed the printer off from yet.) Is the bed temp. too high? Is that why it isn’t sticking?
I am out of isopropyl alcohol right now but will be picking up some tonight to clean the bed with. I also have sandpaper from 2000 up to 8000 grit to softly sand the bed with as well.
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions. It’s been a very positive experience so far with only these minor hiccups so far.
