Raft peels up from perfboard

The platform height needs recalibrated.

Object is peeling up from raft

This could be a heat issue. Ensure that the door and lid are both kept closed throughout the printing process. To further reduce curling small discs, or curbs can be added to the models outside of the corners. This stiffens the model in these areas. These thin discs can later be cut or peeled off the main model.

The extrusion nozzle is clogged. Contact IT 507 457 5240 option 2. Eric Wright

Model falls off raft or perfboard.

The space where the model makes contact with the surface below is too small. Build a small coin shaped disk below your model to make the raft larger and secure the raft and model to the perfboard.
