Can’t make flexible parts stick to bed

  • CAn anyone help me to stick the flexible (TPU 85A) to the bed? It stays there for a while and then start to up from the bed.

    See the photos please!

    Bed adhesion issues can be tricky for sure!

    I am not entirely sure what bed surface that is but it almost looks like some sort of tape. Correct me if I am wrong.
    I would try using some good ol' gluestick on the bed while the bed itself is at room temperature then trying to run a print. It also looks like you are using a brim, which is a step in the right direction. You will also want to make sure you have your cooling fans disabled when printing with this flexible material and slowing your speeds down to ~20mm/s.
    We also have an article we have written on printing with Flexibles which you can find below:
