the printed body is not fixed

What material are you printing with?

Are you using heated bed? if so what are your temperature settings?

Have you leveled your print bed?

What is your initial layer thickness?

    The bed temperature is quite high for printing PLA. With my UM2 60 degrees is normally hot enough.

    I advice to re-level the bed, as this has proven to be the solution for similar problems I experienced in the past.

    You can adjust the initial layer thickness in Cura (expert settings), .2mm is the default value if I remember correctly.

    Yes 90 deg is very high and 60 should be fine.

    0.3 is actually the default initial layer thickness and you won't need to adjust it if you have never adjusted it before.
