Nice, and I see the price is very reasonable on Amazon.
Thats right the last pic shows the face down surface, the bed is definitely not level, I will raise the right side slightly.It looks like you have adhesion problems and a non-level bed. Your last pic, I assume that is the 'face down' on the bed? The nozzle is too far away on the left side; right side looks good.
Yes the bed is heated, I set it at 65 degrees and the maximum being 70 degrees. I have read about the blue painters tape tip before, I will try that the adhesion will be much better for it. I'll look for that layer change in Cura, the print speed has a default of one, which I guess is normal, It can be speeded up and slowed down. I checked supports, I actually removed them before taking the photo. I did use 'Brim', the printer put a base down first, but again it wasn't sticking properly in one corner and even came loose from the base.Heated bed? If not, try blue painters tape, or green Frog Tape as an adhesion bed. Can you change layer height from 3 to 2? Adjust print speed from normal to high (slower)? Also might want to check 'supports', even though you have a curvature in there supporting it, bridging can become a problem, so turn on supports. One other thing to help with adhesion is turning on 'Brim', this puts an extra layer of material around the base and helps keep the piece attached, and not pulling up and warping.
I used white PLA, I couldn't smell any fumes during printing, I set nozzle to 200 C and base plate to 65 C.What temps are your running? About 205C for PLA? or are you printing ABS (need good ventilation)?
Best way to check for level bed all the way around, is just do a small open box near your perimeter. If you get uniform pressed line all the way around, you are level. If you get no adhesion (round tube/bead), that is a low spot and needs to be raised. If you get a small bead that is not half-mashed into the surface, you are still a little too high (don't know if there is an initial height sensor, I wedged paper under mine to raise the bed to make up for the tape).I will raise the right side slightly
