dear all! just build my first mk3s+ about 3 days ago. the problem is that it seems like i got some underextrusion. i rechecked the gears and the tension of the extruder. i also tried different filaments and the settings are original without changes. can anybody tell me whats wrong here? i also tried it with the original smooth sheet with the same result.
best regards! 🙂
Looks like your Calibration is off. Try doing it again.
i already recalibrated. and if i go lower i got a very unclean surface in the first layer so i see that it is too low. well i am not a pro in 3d printing but if the surface gets unclean it means that it is too low right? i also have no clean walls. and i think i can remember that those problems are a sign for underextrusion or i am wrong?
Check the grub screws in your belt-driver pulleys, they MUST be tightened in sequence as in the instructions.
IF they are correct check your belt tensions.
you mean tighten first that one on the small flat part then the other screw? thats the important thing? i did that but i can recheck again.
for me it seems your printer can not build up pressure fast enough (small holes in surface connecting to perimeters).
Bed level seems okayish to me - i'd focus on the extruder.
- listen closely (clicking noises) and check if your filament is grinded
- check extruder tension
- is your filament path clean?
- can your spool run freely?
- perform a cold pull to clear a potential partial clog (highly recommend this)
- filament with high diameter tolerance? (not likely)
Let is know if you succeeded!
You got this!
