Initial feedback is the bed is still a bit too hot. It's set at 80 right now.. dropped it down to 60 and the print looks much better.

Bed at 60 on the left and bed at 80 on the right.

Try these bed temps, I double checked in the exported file.

Updated new firmware to Beta unit, loaded these profiles, and it's looking much better. Will post when done. Thanks! any changes to PolyDissolve profile?

@Hob Ill have some updates trickling in for PETG, ABS, and Polydissolve. Ill tag you when I post the Polydissolve Updates.

@zachah was able to get the qube print to print correctly with some small tweaks which are noted on the sticky note.

Hardware is good so sending this printer out to the customer for the RMA now.

There's a few things I tweaked throughout the day to get the print coming out much better. The main ones are related to temperature and cooling

First I increased the fan speed to 100% for min and max and enabled it at layer 2.

Also increased the minimum layer time to 30 seconds

Lowered the bed and hot end temperatures a bit more down to 210, 55 for the first layer and 200, 45 for the remainder of the print

For travel I also turned that on to all. I then added the max comb distance as 30 so that longer moves would still benefit from retractions.

I also enabled the optimize wall printing order and optimize infill settings. Also whenever I enable optimize wall printing order I also disable the outer wall wipe distance because it basically becomes unnecessary with optimize walls enabled.

I have been running a bunch of test prints with the profiles listed here as well as using the default profiles available in 3.6.9. None of them came out perfect but thus far the closest to what I would expect was actually the default profiles from 3.6.9. Photo examples of each of my test prints is below.

I'm getting a lot better results with @zachah profiles + Tyler's 1.9 fan shroud. The most recent profiles from @anolen I was getting very messy looking layers on slight overhangs.

On the gray cubes the left is angie's profile and the right is zach's. The gray and green model is zach's profile. One thing I'm seeing across all three models is the lower layers appear 'shrunken' and seems to clear up decently at 5mm and completely at 10mm. The gray and green model really shows this weird occurrence of shrunken lower layers.

So I'm using 3.6.8... What I found is that Cura seems to be importing profiles incorrectly. I opened Zach's profile in a word doc and his bed temp adjustments coincide with his commented changes but when I import into Cura the initial layer bed temp is 90c and the printing bed temp is 80c

Correction! The "no material" setting is set to 90/80c so when I just use PLA on one extruder I get the above cube results.

@karrad, I wonder if this is what I saw when I mentioned the thing about 80C in our recent e-mail exchange. I also see @eBeardslee correction comment. Don't know, just seemed odd to see this about 80C when that's what we were talking about. I'll look again tonight; maybe I too was on the "No Material" one and incorrectly noted.

@bmh It sounds very similar, and we are digging into it. As we can only set one temperature for the bed within Cura LE, they should be averaging the temperatures between the two materials. Just to keep this ticket from getting muddied, we are investigating that one on T8012

new tests with 2.0.0.135 with Cura 3.6.11 on Pro Beta using standard production fan shroud:

PLA, high speed profile, no changes other than spiralize. Note bottom layers

PLA, standard profile, spiralize, 0.25 layer. Note bottom layers

PLA, standard profile, spiralize & smooth, 0.25 layer. Build plate initial layer temp dropped to 60C, then 45C thereafter; fan 100%. Very clean bottom layers
This is the best print I've seen with PLA!

Test on Extruder 2 using 2.0.0.135 with Cura 3.6.11 on Pro Beta using standard production fan shroud. PLA, standard profile, spiralize & smooth, 0.25 layer. Build plate initial layer temp dropped to 60C, then 45C thereafter; fan 100%. Very clean bottom layers. Equally good results!

This ticket has gotten a little old, and we have had a few rounds of profile updates. New Standard PLA profile on T8371, we will re-open another testing ticket once 3.6.13 is distributed for testing.
