I am still in the process of getting our first print going. So far I have leveled the bed, and switched from PLA to ABS (both filaments are from LulzBot).
I created a solid model, sent it to Slic3r and scaled it to 50% and used Printer Interface to print.
The first layer isn’t printing well and am just looking for advice on things I can do to get it going.
This is the model
and my Slic3r config file https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2646509/PH.ini
Since I am printing ABS I set the heater to 230C and the bed to 85C. Prior to printing I sprayed some hairspray on the bed at 60C and let it dry as I read that it helps with getting the first layer to adhere properly. This was the first time I did this (as I previously only printed PLA).
Here is a screenshot of Printer Interface
Here are some pictures of the print:
Any suggestions on what I can do to get a good print.
