Ender 3 glass and resistance with the paper

by darcdrake

Hi guys,recently i notice ,i think a problem.I have an ender 3,i brought it 2 weeks ago,i assemble it and i make some awesome prints out of the box,few days ago i took off the glass i have on the bed to clean it up,it was still warm,around 50-60c,and i clean it with water when it was hot,anyhow the glass got a warp,after that i brought a new one 3mm,previous one was 2mm, and i put on,i leveled my bed and when i tried the ender 3 bed leveling test the noozle was to close to the bed :thinking: ,i level it on the air while printing the test,after i got it leveled i put a paper under it and i was supprised because the paper doesnt have so much resistance between the bed and and nozzle,but i lost some quallity from my prints.I havent change anything from cura,everything is the same.

Thin top layers

by SavedDoughnut16

So my ender 3 prints are coming out amazing after a few mods. However some top layers( especially flat ones) come out pretty thin and not even attached to the rest of the print. I didn't really ever have this problem before so maybe I accidentally clicked something in s3d but I'm not sure what it could be. The bottom layers come out perfect though.

fan noise

by SavedDoughnut16

so, I recently upgraded to the mks gen l and used teaching techs motherboard case.(https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3311643) and upgraded with a noctua fan. And boy let me tell you, its louder than the original fan. I understand that the fan is standing upright and that causes more noise. But even with the low noise adapter installed it is sooo loud. I notice that the fan is super powerful so I guess what I am asking is if there is a way to turn the speed down or just other ways to make it quieter. I know its not the end of the 3d printing world but I'm a teenager with it in my room and my parents hate it. even after I upgraded to tmc2208 drivers.

pla filament problem

by yackito

I have a pla filament problem of this brand:
https://www.mastoner.com/printactores-3d/filamento-pla when starting the print does not stick well to the bed, I have tried everything with the settings and even raise the temperature of the bed, I have to raise the height of the bed to get the filament to "crush" on the bed so that it sticks on it with the effect that the impression starts badly.
Did the same thing happen to you? I do not know what to do...
P.S. I only have this filament, then the rest of the piece goes well and with other filaments if it starts well
