    That is 90% likely that your leveled too high.  To prove it, push up on the bed a little while it's printing and you should find that it starts sticking just fine.

    My printer - the bed only moves up and down.  Your printer it also moves in Y direction so it might not work with your printer.  But the idea is - while it's printing the bottom layer (and failing), put your finger under the bed and lift the bed up a little bit.  I'm not sure how hard this is to do while it's also moving!  Maybe this won't work on your printer.  But try it maybe?

     

    If I'm correct, your bed will move up by maybe 0.2mm and it will start printing perfectly.  As soon as you let go it will go back to printing poorly.

     

    The point of this exercise is to know.  Truly know the truth.  That you are printing with the nozzle too far from the print bed.

     

    Once you know the truth - really believe the truth - the solution should be obvious and you can concentrate on the solution (move the bed up).
