I’ve finally received my taz 5 and after assembling and leveling the bed (leveled with a digital dial indicator and it’s leveled +/- 0.01 mm) I can’t have a single good print.
I’m using Hatchbox 3.00mm PLA (bed temperature 55/60 C, extruder temperature 160/200 C) and I sliced mainly with lulzbot cura with default profiles, but I’ve tried with simplify 3D and Slic3r too.
All the results are quite horrible (even with a low expectation) but I can’t understand why they are so bad. I can’t believe that those are the average Taz 5 results.
My main issues are:
- a very bad first layer
- the rubbing of the extruder on the previous layer.
- a popping sound from the extruder
I’ve run a lot of times the bed leveling print and looking at that print I think there is a right distance between the bed and the extruder.
here are some photos of my leveling results and my print errors:
thank you in advance for any help
