Print Moving

Recommended Posts

I'm having a ton of issues getting my prints to stay in place on the build plate. I'm using PLA plastic, I have the bed heated to 60c and I even have a cloth around it to protect from a draft. I've tried all sorts of things but almost every time I try to print it doesn't stay on the build plate. I'm try to just print a 1/2 sphere now and this is what it looks like.

I can't see the picture, but here are a few questions:

 

  • Is the glass plate very clean? Any oil from fingerprints could cause poor adhesion.
  • Did you try using a brim in your Cura settings under Platform Adhesion?
  • Have you tried using the gluestick on the glass plate? Apply some to the plate and then spread it evenly and thinly using a damp cloth.

 

For PLA I don't think a small draft will make much difference, but you could try increasing the bed temperature to 70°C.
