I have another thread that I was getting quite a bit of help through while trying to sort out why my benchy has a lean in the direction of the Y axis. It started to get a bit muddled with me also posting questions about things I ran into going through Teaching Tech’s Calibration guide (https://teachingtechyt.github.io/calibration.html) while trying to resolve this. I thought it might be worth separating out the two topics.
This guide seemed to be highly recommended all over the interwebs. It’s a great step by step but I did run into some moments where I wasn’t exactly sure what to look for or if I was interpreting test prints correctly. I am hoping some of you kind folks have run through this as well and may have some tips. Some things I ran into:
- I did the Acceleration Tuning step and I wasn’t sure if the vertical ridges along the one side were to be expected. This is the side that cuts across on a diagonal. His example looked quite smooth but mine has very obvious vertical ridges. It could be just the quality of his video not showing enough detail but I am really not sure.
- I have found that while my first layer prints nicely, the second layer has very clear signs of over-extrusion which I find confusing…
