Pulled the first print off my Rostock MAX last night, using the settings recommended in the configuration guide. At least the scale seems consistent across the three axes (I did have to change the feed rates for the axes, but I did that during the initial calibration phase).
There are still a few trouble spots I need to diagnose:
- Initial layer adhesion was poor. I’m going to try bumping up the bed temp (currently 55C), and maybe lightly sanding the tape to provide a rougher surface.
- The gaps in the upper layer makes me think it’s a bit filament-starved; going to try turning down the filament diameter a little.
- It looks like it’s missing perimeters on some layers - any ideas what I should do for this? I’m running Repetier-Host 0.85b with Slic3r
- The sides aren’t even close to vertical; the primary curve is away from the Z tower, with a slight curve towards the X tower. The only idea I’ve got for this one is to double-check my belt and bearing tensions…
