rough bottom layer

Postby bmanbuff123 » 2014-Feb-Thu-13-Feb

Hi there, i recently got a new printrbot simple and have been doing a few prints. the top part of the print works great but the first parts is not. it comes out really bumpy and there are blobs everywhere.

Hmm... how is the clearance between the tip of the nozzle and the bed surface(with the tape)?

Looks like a combination of or either or of head dragging a bit or over extrusion?

So now it's only doing it to the front. The back is fine. It's just sloppy on the one side now.

Yeh I tried that. Set it to 3. But still came out the same. The pic up top is what it looked like afterward

What changes did you do to get it corrected? That way others with this problem can try that.

I made the extruded just a little higher because it was rubbing on the last layer making it rough.
