Slic3r First Layer Problems

by Nhcraig01

I have had problems with the first layer of my prints for quite a while. I have noticed that with my first layer extrusions are very squished together. I have adjusted layer height to the point where it is no longer being squished by the build plate and have adjusted the first layer extrusion width all the way up to 400%. Though adjusting the extrusion width does somewhat work, on prints with small first layers this solution does not suffice. I am trying to get a first layer were the individual extrusions are just barely touching. My first thought would be to change the first layer extrusion ratio but I see no such setting in Slic3r. Any advice to getting a better first layer would be greatly appreciated.

Disappointed from the Prusa multi material printer

by bennylak

After playing around with the Prusa multi material kit I can see that the probability for filament getting stuck is much higher then the single material which causes print failures
This is very disappointing and is happening for a few of my friends as well

Has anyone else seen the same experience?
Anyone managed to really fix this somehow?

What happened with my print!? Anet A8

by ekph

So the other day my extruder was blocked so I ordered some new nozzle and the plastic tube and replaced them.
As I tried printing some small prints they were fine but with some hair strings (probably from retraction settings...). Then I tried to print some of my 15cm tall rectangular object, while it is a very simple object my print failed during all of my 3 attempts and it seemed that the print went fine for the first 2ish hours then the whole object started to shift somehow and then the whole thing went wild and my nozzle fan even fell off the extrude head..
I'm attaching the images below.

Any comments are all appreciated!! I've been printing with my anet a8 for a while but still sucha newbie! Thanks in advance guys!!
