yes i understand the initial layer needs to be thicker every time i adjust the settings nothing i need to know if i am doing it right
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.
when i start my print the first layer is so thin it doesn't stick to the bed i keep trying to make it wider everything i try doesn't work my printer is a voxelab aquila s2 when i use there slicing software the first layer is wide sticks to bed just fine i like cura software it has more abilities to make fine tune adjustments when i look on line or youtube i get older versions which are setup different i have adjusted the top/bottom layer and infill i slowed first layer to 10mm it all is the same what am i doing wrong
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.
i am in a print now it will take most of the day when done i will try
Well if you are in a print now then you got it working and you are all set??
