What is a slicer? #
1. Adjusting the first layer #
I usually adjust a few parameters for the first layer.
- Bump up the extrution width for the first layer only.
- Lower the first layer speed (gives the filament more time to heat up)
- Raise the temperature of the head bed by around 5 degrees
2. Construction support #
I usually print with a skirt but especially for larger constructions I switch to a brim.
