I guess all of you stod there, watching the first layer getting printed and hoping for a perfect “first layer porn”; When we achieve that kind of first layer perfection, other than the satisfaction, we also know that most certainly the print from there will go great! It is well known that the path to achieving a successful print, starts from the first layer, without a perfect first layer we can have all sorts of problems; from bad adhesion to failed supports and many other issues.
When it comes to optimizing your 3D printer, one of the aspects to consider is definitely the printing speed. The duration of a print is already eternal, so why not optimize this parameter properly? You may be wondering, “just raise the speed in the slicer”, yes ok you are right. But how far can we raise it without imploding the printer? Take some time and calmly follow these basic concepts related to movement speeds.
Learn how to compile Marlin 2.0 easily with this guide. I will go through all sections and explain every detail on how to configure it properly for the Tevo Tarantula and the new Homers Printers
Very intuitively we can deduct from the name where the problem derives, and that is a matter of layer changes. Is this the only thing that matters? No, not really, In fact, the change of layer is at best only 50% of the problem.
In this guide, I will discuss the 3 fundamental Cura build plate adhesions which are Skirt, Brim, and Raft. I will demonstrate how they work and what are the differences between these three techniques that have distinctive purposes.
