This is something I have been battling for a while with the mini. When I was first using the mini with cura, it seems about the bottom 5 layers or so would flair out. I’ve since moved to a different program and have been tweaking settings. Its been a slow process and I am close to getting the bottom layers to go straight up with the rest of the model.
I still have slight flair though on layers 1 and maybe layer 2. I think ive about tried what I can and id like to hear what others have done to correct this and even some insight as to why I am seeing this.
I have tried setting adjustments such as Z-axis offset, first layer height, first layer width and print speeds for all aspects of the first layer. Outline speeds, infill speeds, solid infill styles.
On old prints I could see the first outline of the first layer as a wide line, the following lines would be “normal” width. Ive still got an outline that is slightly wider than the rest of the first layer lines but I am close. Adjusting the first layer height/width to far causes the print to work over its self it seems, like the previously placed line gets partially covered by the new line going down and it starts to peal the print off the bed etc.
Anyways, look forward to hearing what I can try next
