PP won't stick

I use painters tape and spray Isophrol alcohol to remove the sheen,

then I put down a good layer of stick glue on the tape where the print goes and spread with a towel so it is not clumpy.

I also slow the speed down to 90% until it gets started then back to 100%.

Make sure your bed is level.

Also if you can use a larger print head it will print easier and faster, all I use is the .6 &

.8

    I also had some challenges printing with PP. Overall, still don't like printing with PP but at least I got it stick to the build plate.

    I tried a couple of things but got best results with using adhesive spray (see picture), the one I always use, even when printing PLA. So I use the spray, have build plate adhesion and a bed temperature of 100 degrees. It does the trick for me.
