Ender 3 Newbie Problems

  • Hey everyone,

    Just got an Ender 3 as my first experience in 3D printing. I have a couple problems that I am running into that I can’t seem to find answers for easily.

    1. Anytime I try to print, the filament doesn’t adhere at all to the bed unless I have the initial layer speed really low (5mm/sec). Otherwise the nozzle just drags the filament around and makes a mess. I’ve tried different bed and nozzle temps but nothing seems to work. It’s especially bad with anything rounded. Square layers do pretty well.

    2. Each of my prints ends up having 4 or 5 lines that stand out on the side that go around a whole layer. Not sure what to do there.

    3. I was having trouble with my prints all being too short, I have since adjusted the z steps to compensate but the settings reset each time a print finishes, even though I select to store settings in the menu.

    I would really appreciate any help you can offer!
