Sparse spots on layers

Sparse spots on layers
December 19, 2013 01:19AM
Hi again. Anyone know what the deal is here:

This happens consistently at that spot on the print bed (and in other spots as well). I assumed it meant the rear wasn't high enough, so I tried raising it up. When I did that it was too high and the head started dragging along the plate. I backed it off a bit and ended up just re-leveling the whole bed but the same thing happens in the same spot(s).

It really does look like it is not level. How many layers are on the print pictured? If it is only in the first couple layers I would increase the bed roughness setting, it is actually just a first layer modifier named poorly. If you input 0.05 and you are printing at 0.15mm layers you will have a first layer of 0.2mm . This can help ensure you are getting good flow and makes for a better base for the next layers. Last thing is it may be your glass is uneven. You can try turning the glass over and see if the back is better.
