  1. Tips
    1. Having an fan on the print improves print quality
    2. Heated bed is not necessary
    3. Extra glue is needed for proper bed adhesion
    4. Filament tends to fall out of extruder as the print temp is reached, so extrude some(in Franklin works) before printing.
    5. Having high extrusion for the first 1-2 layers improves bed adhesion
    6. Increasing skirt length to 2-3 circles is beneficial for bed adhesion and a good first layer
