Hi guys!
I ran into a problem that I didn't have when printing smaller elements.
The initial layer peels off the bed when printing with the default settings for PLA och nozzle 0,4mm.
Currently, I print from the beginning, I changed the initial base temeperature from 60C to 65C.
Hope it will help. If not... which from advices I should follow? 
I feel a bit confused, since there are many different.

Ah and I use glue stick!

    60°C is enough for PLA, don't go higher.

    I would say you have to level your bed closer to the nozzle. Do the leveling process again, but adjust the screws a little bit more to feel more friction on the leveling card.

    Since I was printing via digital factory and somebody else was preparing bed before printing I didn't have possibility to check anything. I came to the office today and the problem is solved. It was problem with plastic ring (this that is on cables - picture) that was crashing with ventilator case. I just moved it a bit and now I don't have any problem with printing.
