Batman looks horrible

Hi,

 

Now, the first layer calibration looks pretty good to me and I think the Z adjustment is correct. I did some other random calibrations as well. But if I try to print the Batman that comes by default, it looks horrible.

What do I need to improve to make sure the printing is correct?

Another info: after printing I received the message "pause thermal error" (in Spanish but I'm translating it).

RE: Batman looks horrible

Please attach a picture of your first layer calibration. Also, what material are you using, and are you using a standard filament preset in the slicer?

A picture of what it is supposed to look like will also be helpful.

That's rather strange. I did the first layer calibration before printing batman and it was looking pretty good. I've just redone it and it looks pretty bad as well. Maybe because the message pause thermal error appeared and it messed it up. But this is how first layer looks now (I'm really having trouble to use Prusa, didn't use it for couple of years but I had no issues back then).

 

 

Batman should look this way (see attachment). But clearly, now the problem is that calibration is not working well even...

RE: Batman looks horrible

1. What printer do you have?

2. What filament brand and type are you using?

3. Are you using a standard filament preset in the slicer?

4. Do you think your filament is dry?

RE:

The nozzle is way to high, you need to lower it a lot. Rerun the first layer calibration until you get a proper result (see: https://help.prusa3d.com/article/first-layer-calibration-i3_112364) It might take you a few runs but it makes no sense to further troubleshoot and change stuff before you get the first layer right. Use the build-in first layer calibration (like for the pictures you took) since you do not have to worry about slicer settings and profiles when doing so.

The thermal error has nothing to do with that, I think. Ignore it for starters, if it reappears frequentliy you can start looking for a problem.

RE: Batman looks horrible

I agree that it looks like your nozzle is very high. I wonder if the PINDA sensor is not about 0.4mm to 1.0mm higher than the nozzle.You should check that, and then perform the XYZ calibration. Then try the first layer calibration again.
