The workpiece does not stick to the print bed

If the printed part does not adhere properly to the print bed, there are several measures you can take to improve adhesion:

LEVELING THE BUILD BED: Make sure the build bed is properly leveled. Follow the recommended leveling procedure for your 3D printer to ensure that the first layer is even and well-fitting to the bed.

PREPARING THE PRINT SURFACE: You can apply a layer of spray glue or stick glue to create an adhesive surface on the print bed. Be sure to apply a thin, even layer. This can help improve the adhesion of the first layer of your model.

TEMPERATURE ADJUSTMENT: Check that the temperature of the nozzle and heatbed is set correctly according to the material you are using. Consult the filament manufacturer’s technical specifications for recommended temperatures. Often, slightly increasing the temperature of the build bed can improve adhesion.

USING ADHESIVE SUBSTRATES: Some people prefer to use adhesive substrates such as Kapton tape, blue painter’s tape, or BuildTak surfaces. These substrates can greatly improve the adhesion of the material to the build bed.

USING A RAFT OR BRIM: If the problem persists, you can consider using a “raft” or “brim.” These are additional structures that are printed underneath your model and provide a larger surface area for adhesion to the build bed.

CLEANING THE PRINT BED: Make sure the build bed is clean and free of any previous filament residue or other impurities. You can clean the build bed with isopropyl alcohol or soap and water.

EXPERIMENT WITH SLICING SETTINGS: You can also experiment with your software’s slicing settings. For example, you can increase the “first layer extrusion width” or adjust the height of the first layer to improve adhesion.

Try these solutions one at a time until you can achieve the desired adhesion for your molded parts. Sometimes, a bit of experimentation is needed to find the ideal settings for your environment and print material.
