    I'm certain we can get you sorted. I went with a kit because of how "rough" shipping is on printers. I cant tell you how many of mine have come in "broken"

    After upgrading firmware, this is the I believe 2 layer. The first layer is photoed also as it was being printed.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That looks like a slicer profile issue. You need a higher extrusion multiplier or a larger layer overlap or both. Unless of course that print was with no bottom layers and rectilinear infill only.

    looks like its still to high off the bed (skirt is deformed, outer perimeters not touching) Did you baby step it. Basically to get it perfect you want the nozzle close enough that each perimeter and infill being printed is "one piece", flat but not so far that it looks like the nozzle is dragging through whats being printed.

    So should I leave the prusa edition slic3r settings where they are and just live z it? The machine measured and used .2 offset, those prints were done just pushing print and letting it go.

    100% yes. The auto level accounts for the bed but NOT the Z. You must live adjust Z, get that first layer right then look at the slic3r settings. :D

    I'm by far an expert, but shouldn't the z be in the - not the +?

    cant remember......clockwise is down. Your number on the screen will be a .xxx number. example my life adjust z for .2 layers .635. You'll know if you go the wrong way :D

    I cant remember if there is a minus on the display or not. I'm at the shop and the prusa is at home. I'd just play with the knob until the first layer is right. Worse thing that happens is you go the wrong way and it prints to high off the bed.

    Yes there is that option...just pay attention, you'll see the nozzle going up or down. Start a small print with 30 brim lines :D that gives you plenty of plastic to watch. You'll see the first line go down then the next and if they are gappy like your picture above bring it down a big, wait for the next run, still gappy, bring it down a bit etc etc

    any print. Mine is a gcode so you wont run it through Slic3r just put it on the sd card and press print. Adjust your Z. To get your live adjust z set right just do a calibration cube or something with alot of bring lines so you have time to adjust it and get it right. Then try a real print as normal.
