Adhesion is Key!

Adhesion is key to a good print. One thing i do every morning when setting up my printer to run for the day is watch the entire first layer being printed. yes this can take some time and can be a bour but it guarantees i can go away knowing that the adhesion of the first layer is good and i can come home to a good print and not a mess and a waist of filament.

Sometimes if a small area doesn’t stick to the bed perfect it can lift and effect the final print.

In some cases where the component is unseen like a sport or in this case a clip it being misshapen is ant an issue as it wont be seen but to avoid this happening i use a heat head adhesive and for the first layer slow the print bed speed to 50% so the filament has more time to bond with the bed and not just be pulled about.
