Print not sticking to bed


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print not sticking to bed

So before I print, I put glue down on the bed. And this works fine for a little while, but in the middle of the print, the corners of the print start to come up. I guess this is the glue wearing off, but I dont know how to keep it down thoughout the print.

    Hi and welcome to the forums.

     

    It depends on several variables. But in general you don't need that much glue (if at all). Depending on the model you are printing and the filament used, there are several strategies to use.

     

    Which printer do you use?

    Which filament do you use?

    Which slicer do you use? (Cura?). If yes, which print settings did you select?

    Assuming you use PLA, the less glue the better and squish the bottom layer very well.  More details in this video.  It's a long video but packed with all kinds of information about what to do and where you can actually watch it happening so you know better than with words:

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
