I'm glad you can keep things stuck to your printer bed. I'm at the point of wanting to toss this printer in the scrap pile... Nothing is sticking. Of course, I have not done much with it, but yes, I do clean the bed. Maybe we should have a 3d section in here...

I have good luck by taking a micro fiber cloth and isopropyl alcohol and clean the bed thoroughly. You may need a new build plate.

Oh, but some things I print do not stay stuck. I have found I can print a brim to give it more surface area to hold on with.

I have tried the IPA trick, and my plate is not that old.... My next thing to try is that spray adhesive.

And yes, I have tried the brim as well, sometimes with up to 20 lines on each side. Still pulled.

I have been having issues with the nozzle rubbing the part during infill. However I haven't tried after printing my bed supports.

Yea, I need to dive into the custom programming and see if I can do something to keep it from rubbing. This, I think, is the same issue that I'm having. And yes, I'm doing the Z hop, and Z retraction when the head needs to move to another location. Takes longer, but seems to make it do a little better.

Did you see the new 3D Printer section? If you want, I can move your threads in there. Just reply in the ones you want moved, and I will get them moved.

To make it easy, if you can, just move the ones you see fit. I'm good with it. Thanks for the new section!
