    Pyramid test print @0.2mm

    Just to see how the printer did after first setup and calibration. Fresh off the print bed zero prepping other then removing the brim I had attached to it. I will be interested to try printing this again some time down the road after I gain more experience with this machine and this whole new learning curve that is 3D printing

    Printed:
    PLA
    0.2mm layer hight
    3-0.5mm perimeters and 10% infill
    bed temp @ 60c
    extruder temp @ 200c/first layer and 195c for the rest.

    That looks fine! PLA? Any 'special' settings we should know about

    Sure thing this was printed using PLA and was done with 3 perimeters 0.5mm extrusion width. As for any special settings I did not really change much from my maint tuning of the machine(slowed down perimeters slightly from rapide teams settings in slicer and adjusted extrusion width +/- a bit) the main thing for this print is making sure you have a level bed I quickly realized as it struggled to not slightly catch one corner but did manage to finish and did not seem to harm anything on the print or machine

    I find bed levelling to be a real PITA as it appears I have may have a slight dome towards the centre of my bed (if the measurements I took were correct!). I may try and use other instruments to check out this theory, i.e. steel rule/spirit level. If you have a similar problem and your part is small then sticking to one flat portion of the bed should work ok.
