    Part of print not connecting to support (Newbie)

    Hello, I am brand new to 3d printing. Just got my ender 3 V2 up and running and have printed a couple things so far. Calibration Cube, 3d benchy, and a little stich figure for my daughter. Today is decided i wanted to try something a little different and found this Hydralisk on Thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:265624/makes First i tried the solo print just to find out i was being dumb and needed to obviously have supports for the arms. Half way through the print it spaghetti everywhere. I then tried again with the plate/support build and this is the outcome. Im thinking it’s either one or two problems im facing here. Either my bed wasnt leveled properly or something is wrong in the gcode. And not to mention the excessive stringing and sphagetti. Can anyone shed some light for the beginner that i am in what i am doing wrong or what i need to fix? Thanks and greatly appreciated. And my apologies am completely new to this. Ive attached the image of my print, the gcode, and the original SLT.

    I think you need to use different supports so that it is properly being supported.

    Perhaps you'd care to explain what you mean?
