When I print at the end when it is done the prints are lighter than they should, and they are thin enough that I can scrape the bottom away.

My second problem is that my filament gets stuck on the support rods and stops the filament from coming through the extruder.

And the final problem I have is when the bottom of my prints get stuck and won't come off and I need to learn how to clean it.

(The bed can come off and my printer is an Ender Pro 3)

  • $\begingroup$ Frist thought is a non-properly leveled bed (too close). Light models and thin layers may suggest issues with movement or slicing parameters. I don't understand what is "support rods" that stop filament, but anyway it seems very strange... @castleprints did you went through good printer building and calibration tutorial? - I mean something like Creality Ender 3 assembly and pro build tips + Ender 3 V2 Easy Bed Leveling. $\endgroup$

I think I know the answer to your first problem. Check your flow rates and wall thicknesses in the slicer settings. And if messing with some of those settings doesn't fix the problem, it might have to do with your steps per mm which I posted an answer here.

The other two problems I'm not really sure about. Just wanted to at least get one question cleared.
