Not printing well the tests

Hi,

 

I had to change the extruder because it was completely messed up. I've just tried to print again and it looks horrible. What do I need to do to calibrate and make it work well? I did the wizard and one more calibrations from those available. But this is not looking good.

Thank you

Nozzle looks way too high. Redo your first level calibration with anything other than the built in tiny square, e.g., https://www.printables.com/model/105404-calibration-strip-for-simple-live-zfirst-layer-cal

When you make changes to the extruder, more likely than not you've changed it's height so you need to get your live Z readjusted.

Thanks! This problem was solved 🙂 Now I have another one: the printing is not constant and I kinda see it's not smooth. How can I solve that? I attach a picture.

 

Thank you

You were right, thanks! I didn't know it could go so low 🙂
