Ok :)

Extruder calibrated, now printing the test cube 25x25x25 for Extrusion multiplier :) After this linear advance will be set up.

What I found out so far for now is that the first layer is realy, realy thin extruded (no changes to my Simplify3D Profile is done at this point belonging to this). Will change the nozzle as well later, beeing still on the original nozzle and got a plated and a hardened steel one laying around.

The nozzle should be the problem but maybe the hight adjustment? It is realy realy sticky to the printbed with such a thin first layer (got a filaprint plate).

EDIT: Some photos to demonstrate. The parts around the printhead itself are all printed with linear advance. For my needs an impressive quality. Sure there are guys out that got better ones but I was amazed after coming home and saw those prints :)
Especially take a look at the photos of the skirt and the first layers... have to fix something here :)

Hi Steve would you be able to send a link of the little clip cover you used on the base of the x1 to allow access to the tft plug.

Many thanks in advance
Pete

Nicedevil,  you need to change your z offset.  When it starts printing again click in the more menu and you will see babysteps. 0.025mm, just click the up one a few times until you're happy. You do this when it's printing.. so really easy to adjust and it also saves this value so you don't have to do it again :-)

Pete,  not at my PC but I'll have a look if I still have it for you to upload.  Will be tomorrow now.

Thanks,

Steve

Hey Steve,

did the calibration and adjusted the Z-Offset now. But it seems that the BL-Touch measurements won't help at all :(
Here you can see a screen of a testing cross what teaching tech is using for his first layer adjustments.

Its had to tell from photos..

Is that the standard bed you are printing on?  I still think you are to close from the photos. ,Also, try with a different filament.

Does your gcode have a g29 in it?

Hey Steve,

I have G29 in it ofc :) Already tested with different filament (also PETG, that is the orange one).

It seems that my extruder got a problem. Did a recalibration test of the extruder.
And now it doesn't grab 100mm of filament... just 73mm. After calculation of the e-steps i got around 610 instead of original 445. That doesn't make sense that there is such a big deviation!

I disassembled the whole printhead and cleaned everything. Everything looks fine, nothing broken etc.
Could it be that the nozzle and the heatbreak got a problem?

EDIT: Ok Steve, maybe the problem is solved now. Did whole reset (not that I did it more than one times before) with m502 and started from scratch again... Now the extruder calibration works. I only need 494 E-Steps and not 600 or more and the first layer looks much better :)
Will upload a photo after it finished the X... in the top left corner is the only spot that I'm not happy with now, but maybe I can fix it as well in the next days, it is a location where I don't print that much :P
Maybe for others: Starting from the top left corner to the middle... you can see the difference between the Z-Offset calibration during the print :)

EDIT2: Last photo => back to quality where I'am happy with (left old, right new) :) Thank you steve for all your help!

Cheers
