How long have you ran your Anet A8 in total?
What could be happening for my prints to look like this?
After 19 hours of printing and half spool (19cm * 19cm * 12.5cm)
Overnight improvements. Left is today, right is one from yesterday. Sanding is a lot of work, but looks decent, and a thick coat of primer helps.
I meen, that kinda is how it works
My Lack Enclosure and Upgrades are almost finished.
BE SAFE GUYS!! I love my A8 but there are definitely major upgrades to take into consideration when buying it. Just when i thought i did everything i could to make it safe and this happens. See comments for more info on what happened
Show me your....... Anet A8
First 3 ABS prints! Not bad for the A8

Posted about this earlier but I am still having consistent issues, on every print. I bought new fiberglass belt, I have both the x and y axes tensioned but I am still not entirely sure why this is still happening. If anyone has had this happen please let me know. Speed was 45 mm/s
