thanks for reminder on adjusting "Z" first if I adjust Pinda. I just adjusted the "Z" to -1.200 and did a "PRUSA" label plate, It came out pretty good and did not lift like previous tries. I have hope.

Excellent...  -1.2 is not bad... 

If you have a powder coated build plate as well, that will need readjusting Live Z because the powder coat s thinner than the smooth sticker and the associated 3m double sided adhesive film. 

you can enable multiple build plate definitions and store the values in memory(using the LCD Menu, if you wish.

Thanks Sylvia and Joan. Starting out with no experience with 3D printing and being impatient made it very frustrating.  Great to be able to reach out to the masses and get some feedback. So I tried the Benchy and was almost there.  Settings -1.200, Prusa PLA, regular print speed.  Like the Prusa label before I was happy becasue nothing was lifting.  I guess I am close.  I adjusted it to -1.205 and will try again. Not trying to tease anyone with the cookies.  The light was best there.  I know the bottom pic is a little blury but wanted to show that the letters came out.

Still too high

Making good progress but it looks to me like you are still too high. It is a good thing that you posted a pic of the bottom, so we can see your first layer. Here is a picture of what you are aiming for. You can see the extrusion lines but they are nice and tight against the boat perimeter.

It doesn't take a brilliant technician to get good results from these printers, but it helps a lot to have patience. Hang in there and we will get you there.

Here is a Benchy at -1.205.  I went with a small change but it came out complete.  It feels like a victory.  Sylvia, compared to yours it looks to me that I need to lower it more.

Yes a bit lower. And I am so glad you got a completed print.
