Nozzle height calibration

Post by kitutal » Wed Mar 27, 2013 1:07 pm

I'm having a little bit of trouble, as things are now, the first layer prints with the nozzle too far above the base, meaning it comes out a bit odd looking and doesn't stick properly, but if I recalibrate it to be closer, all the subsequent layers are then too close, to the point where the nozzle is pushing against the previous material and nudging it a little out of alignment.
I thought it possibly wasn't moving down by the right amount after each layer, but now I suspect the material of the first layer is a little thicker than the rest, either way, any ideas how I can go about fixing this?
