I recently changed positions in work, and the 3D printer is part of my responsibility. All of the models have been coming out quite well for a few months, and recently have been having layering issues. The company that sold us the 3D printer and messed with the zoffset and it really didn’t do anything different we have been having the same errors. I’ve been doing slight changes as well to the zoffset, but have not noticed any improvements. I’m wondering if it is something to do with the belts, as I read they may need to be tightened, or the bed is out of level. We use PLA filament from keene village plastics. 2.85mm.
The machine goes through the auto leveling process, then begins its heating, the filament builds a slight build up on the nozzle before moving into position to print, I believe the issue is the first couple layers. Ive tried to upload the gcode into cura, but it wont allow me to use it. (Print set up disabled G-Code files cannot be modified) I figured if I could modify when the filament is put into place, and heated up, or added an extra border layer it would maybe fix the problem, or if I could change the temperature(prints at 220F I believe).
Anyways Im a complete noob when it comes to 3D printing, any advice would be amazing. Thank you, appreciate the help.
