I’ve done a couple of small parts for my first print. I’m getting ready to do some large ones now. I’m not sure if I have the temperature settings correct for the PLA I am using, not sure of the manufacturer, printers at my local library.
The first parts I did are only 4 mm x 4 mm x 12 mm. The side that is on the plate came out flat and a bit spread out, looks like someone pressed it down while the plastic was still hot. The second parts were the same size but I orientated it 90’ so the holes, 1 mm diameter, were facing top to bottom. Those holes are also a bit filled in, I had to take a drill to clean them out. I would think the printer could print to that resolution, can it?
It looks, to me any ways, that the temperature for the nozzle and plate are to high. I went with the defaults on the nozzle, 205’F, and change the plate from 60’F to 50’F.
Are these to high? what would be better settings if so? Or is something else causing this problem?
