I am brand new to 3D printing. I have plenty of experience in CNC subtractive manufacturing, but this is my first dive into additive. Pretty cool stuff! I am concerned that the settings I am using for my parts aren’t correct though. I’m seeing inclusions on the bottom layer when I peel the parts up. I’d guess I’m getting inclusions in all layers since none of them look very smooth. I’m also seeing “drag” marks across the finished top layer. Photos attached.
Taz 5. Nozzle temp was 110deg, bed was 60deg. All other settings were from the PLA (Village Plastics) profile. Basic dimensions of the part are 90mm diameter x 20mm thick, axle is 10mm tall.
I’m concerned that the PLA I purchased might not be that great, Verbatim was the brand. I figured name brand might be good, perhaps not.
All help is appreciated.
