Post by netspherecyborg » Thu Sep 20, 2018 1:31 am

Hello guys,

Could you please help out a 3dprintard to have a somehow looking benchy? Im going to post pics about the worst benchy ever and I need ideas how to make it better. I just bought the printer pre built, never used a 3d printer before and I hade normal printers BUT im willing to learn just please take it in to consideration that im an absolute noob. Im going to follow the communities instructions (as good as I can) and gone update this post with the benchy with the last fine tunenings. Here is my first benchy:

Could you write your settings here?
Nozzle size?
Filament type?
Filament temperature?
Software used?
Any other settings you might have changed?

Also, look up calibrating your extruder - you want to be sure youre pushing out only the material necessary - not too much or too little. Heat up hot end to print temp and use lcd menu prepare>move axis>extruder and push some filament out. Measure and mark on the cold filament coming into your extruder about 120mm from where it goes into extruder. Then use the menu as i mentioned to advance your extruder 100mm. Remeasure after this - you should be measuring 20mm. If it is not, you will have to change your steps per mm for the extruder in the control>motion menu towards the bottom by whatever ratio your measurement was off. I.e., if you told it to advance 100mm but it advanced 110mm, 100/110 = .909. Multiply the steps per mm listed for the extruder motor by .909 and this is your new value you must enter for steps per mm. Then hit 'store memory'. There are many youtube vids showing extruder calibration.
