3D Print resembles Overdone Grilled Cheese

I was puzzled by the odd “puddle” base and the bubbly texture when we printed this substitute keyboard key. Then, I realized that it reminds me of the time I cooked a grilled cheese sandwich too hot and wound up with a similar situation. [expander_maker more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]

UPDATE: I am new at this! The puddle base is called a “brim” and helps the object you are printing adhere to the glass for that crucial first layer. I printed one at 195 today and it turned out solid looking, unfortunately the microphone symbol on top of the key is hard to see. Perhaps I should print a “blank” key and then laser-engrave the top.
