There is some great newbie advice in this posting, a great place to start:


Is this plywood? If you search, you’ll probably also find some starting places, but keep in mind that wood/ply can vary a lot, so a setting is a starting place. You’ll likely have to tweak them to get optimal settings.

Here’s the first result from a search on “1/4 birch”

Since this problem is being seen on materials that were purchased from another company, we can’t offer support for prints that don’t come out as expected. I’m going to move it to Beyond the Manual so other folks here can help. Should this happen with a print on Proofgrade materials, please open a new ticket in Problems and Support and we’ll help you right away!
