I’m an utter newbie, but I’ve been surprised that I can’t even get a test PLA of any kind to finish. First auto-level pushed down very hard on the bed, which was scary. I’ve gone through the guides, checked the firmware was updated (and check every day). Same model tries to print in different locations. Once it got a bit of the way, but then just started printing nothing in the air.
In seeing so many problems with leveling and adhesion, I’m wondering if I should frankly wait a few months for better firmware and move on to another hobby? Many of my friends don’t have issues with other manufacturers, and I loved the idea of the Snapmaker, but a simple PLA should not be this hard. I’m not sure the A350 with the current firmware is ready for prime time. I really just wanted to do some fun things with the kids.
I’d understand issues with super-complex prints, but something is really wrong here. Any guidance for a newbie? It’s certainly possible I am being utterly stupid, but I’ve spent 90 minutes going through the forums.
