    A straightedge across the bed will show any dips or hills. Mine was low in the center so I put a thin 100x100mm piece of paper under the mat.

    Stay with PLA until you get the hang of printing. With ABS you need/should use a VENTED enclosure to outside.

    That's a lot of brim. You only need 2-3 layers instead of 15, if any at all for that print.
    I use 215º-60º for PLA.
