gaps and strings

Postby kbenson0616 » 2016-Apr-Tue-09-Apr

I have a 3D print with strings of filament in the interior hole and gaps on the first and final layer. What should I do?

Sorry I couldn't figure out how to post a picture to this forum. I see the img html tag in the full editor, but I don't see anywhere to upload the photo.

My printer is a Printrbot simple
I'm using Cura to print it.
My student used TinkerCad to create the .stl file and I loaded that model into Cura.
Temperature 210 degrees
Speed 45 mm
Filament 1.75 PLA
