My Mini is about a week old, and I’ve gotten some pretty awesome prints out of it. One consistent issue I have though is that, regardless of material I use (I’ve tried ABS, PLA and wood-fill PLA) it does not seem to want to start extruding at the start of a print. Often times it will finally get going while it is still printing the skirt/perimeter type thing it does and it’s not a big deal. Sometimes it doesn’t, which is obviously a problem (it won’t actually start extruding until midway through what is supposed to be the first layer).
Any ideas what is going on here? The problem seems to be worse when printing on high quality, meaning the nozzle is closer to the build platform. Do I need to maybe adjust the nozzle offset?
I tried setting the “//suck up 30mm of filament” bit of gcode so it doesn’t suck up any.
I’m using Simplify3D now but had this issue with Cura as well.
Thanks for any suggestions!
