Fully-printed #3DBenchy detached from buildplate

#3DBenchy fully-3D printed but detached from buildplate shortly after first layer - 3DBenchy.com

Failed 3D prints is something that many 3D printer operators have experienced.

The most critical moment during a 3D print usually is the first layer. The model has to firmly stick to the build-platform in order for the 3D model print correctly.

The blob you can see here is a #3DBenchy 3D-printed on an FFF 3D printer using standard settings: 0.2 mm/layer and 2 perimeters.

The build-plate was not calibrated correctly being too far away from the printhead. The first layer detached from the plate surface resulting in a blob of molten plastic that followed the printhead’s movement.
