    PLEASE HELP! 3D Printer Issue With Prints

    Monoprice Maker Select V2

    So this printer has been great! But recently I have had an issue with my prints. It seems no matter how hard I try I cant get that first layer right, also the prints turn out to be very flaky
    And chip away. I have tried bringing the nozzle closer and further away from the build plate. Also seems as if its not extruding much but a fine layer. Completly cleaned the printer out and even put a brand new nozzle on it as the old one was worn out. Any help is aprecciated!
    Also to note this printer has a manual leveling bed but I have spent no telling how long to get it as perfrct as i can. I even tried bed leveling test to make slight adjustments while printing with the flakiness is still an issue.

    What is the nozzle diameter did you change sizes and did you also enter filament diameter which you have just checked now and again ?


      Hello, I am new here but based on my experience it appears that your PLA is slipping or under feeding. Did you change brands of filament as they are all not created equally? I recently changed brands and I was ready to throw my printer in the trash because of similar prints to yours. I would go back to my last successful print to see if the issues continue and make sure you don't have any slippage at the extruder. I'm having a separate issue that I will be posting shortly. Hope this helps


        As of now, you got to have a heated bed 3D printing platform made up of glass to ensure a good first layer and better prints. Besides, you can also get Kapton Tape as a print bed surface which ensures quality prints.
