    I don't understand your reply. Could you perhaps rephrase it, using some punctuation and capitals so I can at least see where one sentence ends and a new one begins? It may also help to say what problem you are trying to solve. Because you asked how to get a ticker first layer, but hearing how to do that is apparently not what you were after.

    If the first layer isn't sticking the most common issue is that the nozzle and the bed are too far apart.  So you need to learn how to "level" the bed on that printer model.  Usually there is a procedure you run on the printer.  Sometimes it involves moving things from the controller.  Sometimes it also involves moving leveling screws.  Every printer is a little different.

    You can usually prove this is the problem instantly by pushing up on the bed while it is printing the first layer.
