I have a roll of red "Silk" PLA from Microcenter and I am having a terrible time with it. It just will not adhere to the bed. Nothing but spaghetti mess. I have tried nozzle temps from 205 to 245 and bed temps from 45 to 55. There is a gorgeous vase printed from the same stuff at the local MC's BYOPC counter so I know it can work, but the person who printed it is never in when I go by to ask. Anyone have any success with silk PLA care to share their secrets??

I have an Ender 5 Pro with the glass bed. Normal PLA prints just fine; only silk is giving me a problem. Yes I check the leveling, etc, between each print. Also I've tried with and without glue stick.
