I had to do a double take on your pictures. I have the same printer with black/blue colors sitting in the same spot on what looks like the same Harbor Freight workbench, with the same color walls.

have tried to down load your file 3 times will not work or print .files is only135kb

this wet print on an A8, it is too big to fit on the plate (using Cura to slice)

i know you posted this a long time ago, but if you still want to try, i had the same problem. you just have to disable build plate adhesion, then it fits

OK,I give UP!!I have tried to print this on my tiny A8 bed,but the same thing keeps happening,the upper end near where the spool sits keeps lifting off the bed,I have tried "no fan","25% fan","cold bed","40C bed",as long as I print stuff that stays within the 1-1/2 rim of the bed,its ok, Im thinkin maybe my bed dont heat right.Im gonna give it ONE more try,this time with a brim.

have the hotbed at around 100 degrees Celsius for ABS filament to prevent warping

i had the same problem with another print, lowering the "first layer print speed" worked for me (REALLY SLOW like >15 mm/s), i used 65° for the bed temp. I have the same problem of @IAMhippo12 because this piece doesn't fit my bed how did you solve this one?

Ok, great ,i will give this a try..........
Thanks for answering...............

Can someone split it in half? It won't fit on my bed flat or upright...

Works great! I created a quick change hub for the filament spool holder that you designed.

What a good idea! Will print this as soon as my A8 has finished the current print job.

I do notice it seems a good idea to print this with the part pointing up in the picture downwards on the print bed, this will most certainly print better (no airbridges).
