First print , having some trouble
October 27, 2013 05:42AM
Hello.I bought a prusa i3 8" from makerfarm 2 months ago.As im not good into technical stuff i let my uncle build the printer for me and he finally finished it (as he is a busy man and it took him some time) so i finally got my printer home , and installed pronterfacer , slicer , uploaded the firmware to the arduino board.Everything seems to be working fine but ! When i start printing i get nothing but a mess ... sad smiley It looks to me that the extruder is extruding either too much or not making any sharp lines its a complete mess... I will upload 2 screenshots of the objects i managed to get so far ! Can anyone help me , im completely clueless on what to do to get better accurate prints !

Edit : the left object is supposed to be a cube , the second one is a glow in the dark ghost i downloaded from thingiverse confused smiley

I personally think, when you have no technical background, it's going to be a hard one to get it fixed like it should...

But alright...
Did your first layer print well? And does it stick to the bed?

IS the machine calibrated? That must be done after building. Contact Makerfarm for instructions.
