Doodaddoes is back with another very clear and helpful video for 3D printing beginners. This time he’s exploring some very common problems with the first layer of a print. If anyone has been printing for a while, they can tell you that the first layer is extremely important and that they probably spent a lot of time figuring out the tips in this video. I know I would have appreciated this when I was just starting out.

If you’re just starting out, you may notice that his printer is the Delta configuration, which has 3 dangling arms. That makes no difference on the lessons he’s teaching. These tips will apply to you no matter which type of filament based printer you use.
