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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        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.
