    I think I'm possibly too much of a noob to go rebuilding the printer to add levelling sensors. I'll need to get a bit more confident before I venture into that.

    As far as I can see there is no...

    Hi all,

    I posted a problem similar to this before, and curious aardvark pointed out that I am setting the nozzle too close to the plate. Remedying this helped for a few prints, but now I'm havingf...

    This is essentialy what I did, only, effectively, I printed the nylon resistance-ring as part of the knob. I checked the plate level after a couple of prints and it's holding firm :)

    Thanks for the tips.

    I'll check the bed level before I print the bed-level nuts :)

    Thanks for the advice.

    I have swapped over to Prusaslicer now. The first layer is still not great, but it may be, as you say, due the constant atteniton the bed-level needs. I haven't been...

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply.

    First off, I apologise. I just now realised that the vertical axis is the Z-axis in 3d printing. I naturally assumed it was the depth (back-to-front).

    Thanks.

    I solved my problem by adding two 2mm-wall tubes as a separate entity into Prusaslice, and setting them to print with a 2mm shell. I'm not sure that it's a textbook solution, but it...

    Thanks for the infill suggestion. I am hoping not to waste too much unused material though.

    As I said, my example was over-simplified. The full spec is to make a 25° downward-facing wedge that is...
