It could be that if you are printing on glass that the glass is not clean I don't know if it works but I have hear hair spray on the bed can help it stick also is the bed heated and if it is, is it at the right temperature

I am having what I believe to be a similar issue.
My printer was working but now it is printing all clumpy and stringy.
I have leveled the bed and adjusted the sensor again. It slightly improved it but still bad. Need help! I wanted to print some safety masks for the NHS :(

What filament are you using?

You need to upload your photo to the internet. Google free picture hosting.

Please do not use PhotoBucket.... (My personal opinion) But they killed a load of forums previously
by holding your pictures to ransom. They suddenly wanted to charge money if you wanted to
share your pictures which deleted the pictures from many forums.
