hi - recommended infil?


I'm having trouble getting the ends of the tentacles to stick to the base using flexible PLA filament on Flashforge Dreamer at 205 degrees on a warm day. I use acetone to clean the blue base plate and have tried with a raft and brim with no luck. I understand this is probably a filament problem more than anything, but would appreciate any tips.

Another quick easy tip would be to spay a layer of hairspary on it!

You're post is a little old but I'll second what Sustrik said. An Elmer's glue stick on glass is a sure way to get crazy strong bed adhesion with PLA!!

Try glue stick on the bed, it makes a huge difference for adhesion for TPU and the like.
