That first print won't stick to the plate?

]So, You're all excited and you set your first print off and you have read up on plate levelling and you're SURE everything is set up right.

Then the horror you find the print is a blobby mess stuck to the bottom of the vat and there is nothing just NOTHING on the build plate!!!

Don't panic (as a famous book once said) try setting your base layer time to a much higher value 70-90 seconds and try again this should make sure it sticks to the plate and not the vat, Don't be afraid to really burn that sucker on there!

If it's working you will hear a pop or clicking sound every time the plate comes up.

Happy printing: we have now achieved normality and therefore anything you still can't cope with is your own problem...
