Print not sticking to bed
January 29, 2017 04:35AM
I've just got my printer up and running but when I try to print the robot, it gets about 50% done and then it detaches from the bed and I have to emergency stop it. How can I make it stick?

The 4 things that usually cause this are either:
  • your first layer is too high (or sometimes even too low)
  • your print surface has grease on the surface (from hands etc)
  • you're printing too cold
  • the filament diameter is set too high in the slicer and is causing the material to drag out of the nozzle.

Can you provide a picture of your first layer?
