The first layer is essential for every Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D print, as it forms the foundation for the part to be printed. If the first layer does not stick to the build platform correctly, the print can move before it is completed, which will lead to a failed print.
The first layer adhesion also affects how easily the part will be removed from the build platform when the print is completed.
AON3D has included two G-Codes files, as well as their factory file, for the user to practice, and get better informed on the process.
Each G-Code file will print a single layer rectangle shape, which will give the user the time needed to make minute adjustments to the Z-offset from the Graphical User Interface (GUI)/web browser.
The user must complete the Z-axis calibration before a first layer can be successfully printed.

Refer to the information that follows to get a reference of what to look for in the first layer print.
A print with a Z-offset value that is too small (the nozzle is too close to the build surface) will be as follows.
Fartherto move the print surface away from the nozzle, in small increments.
A print with a Z-offset value that is too large (the nozzle is too far from the build surface) will be as follows.
Closerto move the print surface towards the nozzle, in small increments.
The correct first layer will be as follows.
