Why isn’t my printer printing correctly.
I’ve made everything leveled and every time i try to print the filament bunches up at the nozzle. I’ve had it for a month and I’ve just been struggling to actually get it going.
Its tough to determine the issue without a little more information. What filament are you using? At what temperature are you trying to print? Is the bed itself leveled ?(not warped , some ender 3s have this issue) What methods have you tried to level the bed?
3D printing is definitely not plug and play. The main factors of a successful print are:
## The quality of print desired = slower for fine detail
Bunching of filament at nozzle would indicate that the filament is not adhering to the bed. This is most likely caused by the nozzle distance to the bed being too large. When you home Z, place a piece of paper, about 0.1mm thick, under the nozzle. You should just feel the nozzle grabbing the paper as you try to pull it out. Otherwise, adjust your Z endstop till it is correct.
If the distance is correct, the layer height might be too small, but that is least likely.
