First 3D Printer.. Not quite working

Post by RogerAdams » Fri Dec 01, 2017 5:57 pm

Hey all!

I have an Up Mini 3D Printer - I'm using PLA to print - and everytime it goes to print, it's just dragging the plastic along the board through the nozzle

I have my nozzle set at a height of 122.5 which is a folded piece of A4 away from the board, but it's still not sticking or working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

What brand is the PLA? is it UP brand or third-party filament?

Did you try to print ABS filament?

Hi Roger,

Could you please try to offset the nozzle height a bit higher?

I am having the same problem. UpBox plus has auto leveling of board and nozzle yet even after auto setting, print is pulling off the board. Minor adjustments higher and lower do not help. Please advise.
