1. The nozzle temperature display error
Solution: Check if the Extruder connection cable is properly connected.
2. PLA + first layer adhesion failure
Solution: Increase the temperature to 70 Celsius degrees or exchange the Soft black magnetic sticker with the Gold PEI Magnetic sticker, both will help to improve first layer adhesion. Note: PLA+ requires a hotbed temperate of 60 – 80 Celsius degrees.
3. Failed Prints – Not extruding enough + prints Zits and Blobs
Solution: 1. The extruder may be clogged. If this happens, check that the filament is clean and the spool is dust-free. If there is a lot of dust on the reel, it can block the extruder as it accumulates inside the nozzle. 2. Not extruding enough: Screw up the adjusting clamp a bit, try again after a bed leveling.
4. “It looks like the last File was interrupted …” – How to get rid of that?
Sometimes happens if my printer is connected to the PC. or maybe the gcode is not saved completely (check the gcode file if it still has End-gcode at the end).
5. Plowing after a good first layer
You’re too close to the bed. Layer 1 is epic, layers 2-4 suck, then pretty good from 5 onwards. The plastic pushes upward. When the next layer goes down, it doesn’t have enough space, so it happens again. Normally, this clears a few layers, and you get an elephant to foot. But it can keep going depending on you level of over extrusion.
In theory, every layer after the first should be perfect but that’s not usually how it is in reality. Imperfections in the v rollers frame not dead nuts square, lead screw backlash, etc, etc all make things less than perfect as it travels up the z-axis. That’s probably why you’re seeing plowing after a good first layer. Even with ABL, what you have to do sometimes when looking for perfection is to set the z offset for the first layer, then adjust a layer or two up to make things just right. That’s assuming all the stuff you initially set is set up well and not cause for concern.
6. Can’t get corners to stay down
Try slowing down your first layer some
Try reducing airflow and/or keeping the bed a bit warmer so the corners peel less
Try bed tramming
