[BUG REPORT] Issue relative with parts base flatness

Post by pablo.rodriguez » Thu Jan 21, 2016 7:35 pm


I own a UP mini and I’m suffering an issue relative with parts base flatness

The base of all pieces I print is not flat, the end of the base is always elevated at the end side.

Is very significant in large pieces

But it happens also in small ones:

I suspected about the platform calibration, but I have calibrate it and the problem persist. I tried to print with the part in distinct orientations and platform positions but it is always the same result

Thanks in advance for your help

Are you printing with ABS? abs is prone to warping. This looks more of a warp issue, like it is unbinding from the raft during printing. Is there any reason you are standing the "name plates" up like that instead of laying them down?

I would suggest the following:
-laying them flat for best adhesion
-make sure your bed is properly heated
-keep the enclosure closed to keep the heat in
-check the door on the print head to see if its open or closed
-try printing on a different setting (i.e. "fine" mode)
