I use an Ender 3, with cheap Amazon "Eryone PLA", which states a range from 190-220 °C, 1.75 mm dia. I have had this for about a year.
I use the rough build plate, not the glass. I have tried my best to level the bed but I am an amateur
I was originally getting poor adhesion so I cleaned the bed, levelled it, increased filament temp to 196 °C and heated the bed to 40 °C, with no fans in a house around 20 °C with not much airflow.
This helped adhesion, but my layers are very messy - the first perimeter may adhere correctly, but subsequent layers curl off, meaning the inner passes lift off the build plate. Attempting to persevere, pulling out these regions causes the blobby, ridged mess shown below. This is still the first layer.
I have noticed the extruder makes a knocking noise every so often, and the edges of prints can be so thin they are translucent.
I've browsed the web for common 3D printing errors but nothing I've found or tried has helped.
