My Object Peels Off the Plate During Printing

MY OBJECT PEELS OFF THE PLATE DURING PRINTING

Curling or warping of prints is usually caused by poor adhesion at the beginning of a print. Even if the first layers of a print appear to be sticking well to the build plate, layers that aren’t firmly pressed down against the build surface may begin to curl over time.

Keep in mind that prints with a larger base or a longer build time will be more likely to curl. Increased infill may also increase the odds of curling for a print. Additionally, printing in a colder or draftier environment can cause printing issues as well.

It’s best to watch the first few layers to ensure that there aren’t any adhesion issues early on in your prints. The first few layers should have solid, flat lines adhering to the build plate perfectly after an initial purge line. If the first layers of your print appear to be somewhat raised or squiggly, this can lead to curling or warping later on in the print. If this is the case, try to following suggestions.

CLEAN THE BUILD PLATE

Ensure that the build plate is clean. Dust and oil from your hands can prevent objects from sticking. Wipe down the build plate with rubbing alcohol and a clean, lint-free cloth.
