Elephant foot I
11. Print bows out at bottom - elephant foot
I. Balance between bed temperature and cooling
To prevent an "elephant's foot" from appearing in your 3D prints, you must cool the base layers of the model enough to support the higher layers. However, if you use too much cooling, you risk that the base will deform. Proper balancing can be difficult, starting by lowering the bed temperature by 5-degree intervals (to +/- 20 degrees from the recommended temperature). If your bottom/top thickness is set to 0.6 mm, start the fan slightly lower.
