Need Help on Prusa Mendel
February 20, 2016 02:57AM
Hey guys,

I need your help.
I have a Prusa Mendel since few weeks ( and I have many troubles to print.

The first layers are good, but it gets worse and worse as and when it is printed and ended in a heap.

I don't understand why and how to correct this.

All I try ends horribly.

Many thanks for all things you could tell me.

thanks for your reply.

Here are some pics.

Nozzle is 0.4mm
Filament: 3mm

For example, I tried to print this object just for test: []

Layer Height: 0.30
Infill%: 60
Temps: 200

The results are horrible and I am distraught:

Thanks for your help

Have you calibrated the extruder and set the nozzle size of 0.4mm in the slicer software ?

What was your set hot-end temperature set at?
Here are some links to information when setting up the printer and having problems with print quality.
