Ender 3 Pro Print Fail/Maintenance Advice
I recently started 3D printing for the first time. I have been successful for about 2 months now in keeping my printer maintained e.g. Cleaning/unclogging the nozzle, re-calibrating the bed, tightening any loose wheels etc but I still have a lot to learn about a lot of the parts of the printer and what causes what issue.
Last night after a lot of issues when levelling my bed and test printing, I was finally able to get my print going. I come back to check it after it’s finished today and it’s a mess. The print side closest to the bed is all over the place even though when I stayed to check the bed support layer it was looking fine. The corners of my print have lifted and are sometimes not printed correctly at all.
However, as the print got taller the quality seems to have sorted itself out. This is the first time I’ve had an issue like this so I don’t know if there’s a part of the printer that would cause this that I’d have to fix/tighten to sort this out.
To clarify: The bed was levelled (which was more complicated than usual), The nozzle was cleaned, and the temperatures were set at their regular temperatures for the filament I was using (the same filament I usually use).
I will also mention this is probably the biggest item I’ve ever printed so I don’t know if that would make a difference.
Any advice on how to fix this issue would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
