PLA is generally an easy material to deal with. It is the most widely used material because:

  • It has a cheap kilo price
  • It is easy to print with
  • It can be used for a wide variety of purposes
  • Prints at relatively low temperatures

PLA is also biodegradable, and one must therefore avoid being exposed to constant humidity and large temperature fluctuations. It is not as impact resistant, dimensionally stable, UV resistant and resistant to various liquids such as oil and chemicals such as. PETG filament is.

It is essential that the build plate is kept as clean and grease-free as possible. Many people find that their filament does not adhere well to the buildplate and uses glue and even hairspray.

Often, it's just a matter of cleaning your building board and keeping it clean. Start by cleaning your building board with dish soap, hot water and a scouring pad. Avoid touching the build plate while drying and reattaching the build plate to the printer. Then the building board is like new again. And after each print, wipe the building board with a cloth that has been poured a little isopropyl alcohol / isopropanol on. From time to time you can also pour a little isopropanol on the scouring pad and then scrub a little on the building board, and dry with a cloth. Then it's ready to go again!

If the above does not help, then there is a high probability that your nozzle's distance to the building board is not adjusted correctly. It may be too close or too far away. Use the paper method to roughly adjust, and then find a test pattern on e.g. to print a single layer of square squares in all 4 corners and in the center. If they look the same, have a smooth surface, then the printer is adjusted correctly.

Here is the illustration of a wrong and a correct adjustment:
