Any idea what causes this?

Jul 13, 2018 10:00 am

I have been printing with my Prusa MK3 for about a month now being a total newbie to 3D printing. For the first time I am having trouble printing a small object and I can't figure out what causes this. It start after the first few layers. I printed one text this morning without the text and that went fine strangely enough. The one on top I printed a few days ago. I also did a first layer calibration which came out like this.

I hope someone can help me.

Well, it is Friday, 13th! :P (Just kidding...)

That first layer calibration does look quite anemic. Is anything different/changed, like moving the printer (which could require recalibrating), different filament, air changes... Different things can affect printers/printing.

I'd suggest recalibrating and see what happens...
That's "MISTER Old Fart" to you!
