Print not sticking flow rate
I have been setting up a BL Touch and almost finished the set up but come across another problem.
I am having problem with the first layer. I have the z off set adjusted so a can slip a sheet of paper under the nozzle after auto home and G1 Z0 command.
When the 1st layer starts, the filament only partly stick on the bed about 5 % most of the filament seem to stick to the nozzle as if it is too high. If I lower the nozzle any more no filament comes out and the nozzle leaves a mark on the builders tape.
However when I push the filament into the extruder with my fingers it starts sticking and the print looks as if it will work.
I tried to increase the flow rate on the first layer from the knob near the LCD screen but it did not work. If I move the extruder with the manual setting it pushes out a stream of ABS as it should. I have cleaned the hot end so it does not appear blocked.
I am using ABS Bed 100 C Nozzle 225 C Blue painter tape Nozzle .3 layer height .2
Any help would be great.
