Quick question: Is the extruder nozzle supposed to be touching the print when it is printing, or is it supposed to be a little above?

Above by the z/layer height. It extrudes into the space between it and the just-printed layer.

Yeah so if your layer height is set to .2mm, it should be .2mm above the part. If it looks like it’s mushing through the part, you could be over extruding.

Ok, thanks!

@Musical3d No problem.
