vertical printing?

Hi,

I tried to do some vertical printing (in an attempt to reduce support and post processing) but my latest attempt lost it's grip and fell down during printing.

At the moment I'm using the quick standard settings with standard pla.

Is it maybe possible to improve the sticking on the surface to try and improve this method of printing?

Maybe trough a higher temperature of the heatbed? Or maybe trying to use glue?

feedback is always welcome.

    Add brim is the best method.

    It's pretty easy to remove afterwards as you just peel it off.

    It can leave a sharp edge but this can also be easily removed with a sharp knife. Hold the knife at 90degees to the print or even slightly backwards so it doesn't dig in and just scrapes off the edge.
