Newbe here, input please


i am  New to 3d Printing,
and  got me  an A5, ...

I did   try to find my settings;  with Lots of reading  and some  Internet Pages mixed together i found  some  Cura settings that seem to work  the Out of  the stick version did not - 
the  alu extrusion rods for the enclosure are not even ordered yet ;)

The  pictures show the test  Thingy i found  here in an other threat ( i think  the 7. thing i ever printed  and the  third that worked ;),
And now i am on the  hunt for the perfect settings

what i  Got, and  you also see some of the problems  - I would love   some  input,  of people  that know  what they are doing as i am kind of  fumbling in the dark here  i am still on  my Trial PLA roll 

Sorry for my crappy English, i am not nativ ,)

    Hi @Eye, welcome :smiley:
    Generally I would print with 0.2mm layers or less. 0.15 is a good height to aim for :) 0.3mm is more helpful if you want to do large prints, very quickly.
