First i should say i have the ultimaker original plus and have tried abs petg and pla different companies of each and wind up with the same result

 

lately I've had issues printing the first layers of just about everything but once the prints get to a certain point everything seems to be fine. attaching pictures of a benchy i printed recently. i dont seem to have any issues with adhesion and i get the same results with a raft or brim. i honestly dont know what it is. i believe i have it leveled correctly but if you believe its the issue and some tips or tricks that would be awesome. thanks temps ive tried vary but for the most part pla is 210 nozzle and 70 for bed

    Hi @matc94, thank you for your post.

    70ºC sounds pretty hot for PLA. For starters I would recommend to lower it to 60ºC. Do you use glue or any other form of extra adhesive?

    The bottom looks indeed rough. Was this printed with a raft? That could explain such a surface. What does it look like when you print directly on the glass?

    hey @SandervG,

    yeah i believe this particular one was printed on a raft but i end up with very similar but usually worse results when printing without some sort of of raft or brim also i use painters tape on the class. i use stick glue when working with abs to help but other then that thats all
