Messy test print on this printer. This is my first try, so I really don't have any idea what I'm doing. 😆

Can anyone suggest what I could do to make it stick properly to the print bed?

Do I need to clean the print bed a particular way before each print? I also recall seeing something about applying hair spray to the bed?

Welp, this is fun!!! just doing some maintenance and mods to get ready for 2018! Replaced the wrap around the heat block. Putting an all metal hot end in. Going to clean up that rats nest of wires above the hot end assembly. And the first print from this will be the cobra fan. I would go Diiicooler but I like being able to see the nozzle laying down that sweet filament on the first layer to much.

LEVELING: The Instructions Stink

Finally getting my Maker Select Plus setup and I've already hit a snag. The instructions say to Home All from the Tools menu (pictured), but there isn't a Home All.

So, I assumed the Leveling option was what I needed to do. That's when it asks me to adjust screw 1/4, 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4. Which screw is which?

So again, I made an assumption. The Leveling seemed to be going counterclockwise, so I assumed that screw 1/4 was the front left screw and the numbering also went counterclockwise.

Apparently, I assumed wrong.

Firstly, I had to almost completely unscrew screw 4/4 (back left) to get close to the nozzle. Second, when the Leveling was finished, it dragged a groove into one side of the printing mat.

So obviously I assumed wrong somewhere. Can anyone point me to a better leveling guide? One that actually explains the steps? Pictures would also be nice. Everybody likes pictures.

Hey folks! I ordered a Maker Select Plus during the Black Friday sale. When I opened the box, I found that the frame and build plate had fingerprints on them. There is also a butterfly already printed in the build plate.

Is that normal or did I get a used printer?

Just ordered a Monoprice Maker Select Plus. Was wonderin what your basic Cura settings look like?

Any recomendations on a slicer and settings for that slicer for this printer? Cura, slic3r, simplify3d ?
