Shell holes, scorching, rafts too strong


#1

Hi guys,

Im not new to 3d printing but just bought my first m200 and have wanted one for a long time. It prints very similar to my Up Plus2 but seveal issues I need help fixing.

Getting some scorching. I unchecked the fan auto setting and it seems to be better. Just curious if anyone recommends other fixes like printing a different fan vent or adding a second fan?

I read that the older versions of zsuite worked better. Any thoughts?

Rafts are way too strong. Id rather try printing without them or somehow reducing the amount of rows like I could do with the Up. Any way to print without rafts like when doing a shell print, except its a fill print?

My shell prints are all leaving holes on the top surface like the printer can brindge the top of a sphere good. Im on the thinnest shell setting but even when thicker still got holes like a bald guys combover…hehe.

What material were you using? As far as I know, there shouldn't be any problems with raft removal. Have you got some photos of that prints? Maybe its heating issue - check if lower fan is working at all (newest firmware has an option to test FAN1 and FAN2)

I'd like to see that as well ;) 

As for older versions - dig deeper into forum, there are comparison topics, it wouldn't be professional from me to encourage you to use older Z-Suite releases. The best option would be to compare it by yourself.
