Ender 3 not printing quality. Material is skipping
So been playing with this printer for awhile. Broke a rule of mine. "Why fix it if its not broke"
So on any printer ive always put an E3D v6 hotend on cause i just like them.
Well every since ive just kind of have issues with flow.
My prints arent quality anymore. The material just skips alot. So im trying to do some fine tuning on the printer and need some guidance on what to play with. I use cura.
.6mm Nozzle with PLA.
Layer height: .2
Initial layer height: .2
Top/Bottom thickness: .8
Print speed: 50mm/s
Travel speed: 150mm/s
Retraction distance: 2.7mm
Retraction speed: 50mm/s
Thats prolly about the basics needed I guess.
I did also install a better extruder gear setup and I did do the calibration on it. My E steps are 144.2.
Im going to attach a few pictures of my last printes tonight and youll be able to see the skipping. Just printed a calibration cube as well and while it printed pretty good, 1 side just skipped the filament a whole bunch so im not sure where to start on fixing this issue.
