I’ve had bed adhesion issues with my SV06+ to the extant that I was visited by the spaghetti monster. After removing the excess PLA from everything I could I restarted my machine so I could figure what was wrong and a few questions arose.
- What is the best method to service the PIE plate??
- What needs to be done to the nozzle sock to keep it in place??
- Is there any updated file for the bed heater cable stress relief??
Thanks in Advance
I just replied to another thread about my experiences with their PEI sheet and adhesion. I personally think some are defective or subpar quality. Before you jump to that conclusion and reach out to Sovol, you should try cleaning with soap and water and maybe 99% alcohol. This will help get any build up and oil off. If it doesn’t stick after that and your z offset is perfect you may be in the same boat as me.
1: Clean the PEI plate with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. Most people use a paper towel, I find an old sock works well for me (I cut the foot part off & use the upper part).
Do not clean the bed while it’s hot, it will ruin it & it will no longer work. Clean it only after the temp is 45* and under.
2: The sock doesn’t fit the heatblock right & hangs down on the thermistor/heater side.
You have to cut part of it away on the left upper corner for the wires to fit through.
3: The stress relief for the SV06 works fine on the Plus.

I also have problems with adhesion. I cleaned it so often the printed lines and logo are vanishing nothing will hold on it. Now I use a glue stick and it works. It’s not the best method to print but for the moment it’s Good.
I think it’s not a good surface quality they use
My plate held PLA without glue exactly twice and then, even after cleaning it with soap, water and 91% alcohol, the print would fail about 5 to 7 layers into the print job.
Now I just put down glue stick every time and don’t try to print otherwise.
I tryed a lot in last time. My best way to become now a very good adhesion is to clean it only wit water an dishwasher / detergent nothing else! After cleaning I heat up the plate for about 5-10 before I start. Also I have reduced the space between bed and nozzle. I use thin paper not the normal paper where you write on it to measure the high. Also what I do is the initial layer flow set to 120%. I can show you a picture how my first layer looks like since I do it like described
