I’ve just gotten started with a Flashforge Creator Pro and gloriously failed on my first PLA test models.
First, I couldn’t get PLA to stick to the blue bed causing an ugly pile up.
I’m now overriding the baseplate temperature setting using the Flashforge preferences. Next, testing with 60°C because that’s the Ultimaker2 glass plate default and PLA filament sticks well there.
Still, the 1st layer is a little shaky. It does stick in most places but often has irregularities and later on during the print the whole base warps upwards (see bottom right below).
I’ve read here on 3DHubs that some of you pros print with the bed at room temperature but I was under the impression that a heated bed increases adhesion, doesn’t it?
What else can I do to finally print properly on my Flashforge? Spray? Glue stick? Lower bed temperature? Switch to glass (where did you buy your glass plates)?
My Ultimaker2 has great adhesion without any additional adhesives. Is that the glass plate instead of the blue custom material of the Flashforge?
All the best
