So I think I have a bed leveling issue. I printed out the first layer of 50 of a small part I’ve designed and inspected the results. There were significant gaps on the right and more solid layers on the left.
I’m printing the first layer 10% thinner than the default layer height (0.18 mm) and setting the flow rate to 115% for the initial layer as well as increasing the temperature from 205 to 210 deg C.
The goal, of course, is to get a smooth bottom, but now I’m more interested in just getting a consistent print. I clean my nozzle and level the x-axis before every print.
The printer, by the way, is a Lulzbot Mini 2
