Hello!

Printer: PRUSA MK3S:

Filament: Matterhackers PRO PLA 

Temps: Standard PRUSA PLA (Extruder: 215 / Bed: 60)

 

I have an object I am printing that's about 2" X 6" (50.8mm X 152.4mm)

ONE prints just fine however if I try to copy the object in the slicer to make 4, the prints slide off the bed, wont stick and the print fails. 

I clean the bed with IPA every print, I have calibrated the printer a few times and LIVE adjusted the Z ( -1.500) 

Most if not all of my prints come off very easy when they're done.  

 

I have been working with 3D printers for about a year now, However this is a brand new MK3S I guess I should adjust the temp's and try that?

 

Thank you so much

Are you using 7x7 mesh bed levelling?  if not now might be a good time.
Have you considered washing the Build plate with Hot water and a little dish detergent, rubbing it really well, into the  build plate to remove any surface contaminants, then rinsing well with fresh hot water, and immediately with plain paper towels. handle  only by the edges of the build plate

then raise your build plate to 70c and try printing again

how do you do live Z adjustment, I use the 'Life adjust Z, My Way' process,

You might also wish to consider a brim, or mouse ears to improve the adhesion.
