New User, Pretty Good Machine

Post by Norluck » Mon Mar 25, 2013 1:26 pm

This is my first ever time 3D printing, and if I say I'm not excited, I'm lying. But I have ran into a small issue, and that there is excess plastic everywhere on the model when I print. Is this a known issue, or am I incorrectly calibrating my device (I have it set to 132 nozzle height, 131.8 table height. My Z setting is 0.2)

Is the excess maybe support, does your object haveoverhangs, i.e. parts above the base that protude outwards. If so support isprinted from the base as the printer needs something to print onto when the object gets higher up.
