    Sputtering, poor base adherance

    Ran into some poor print issues last night.

    Machine: Ender 5 Plus
    Filament: Coex PLA-- JUST OPENED
    Nozzle temp: 245° c
    Bed temp: 65° c

    Never had issues with Coex before. Usually prints with zero issue.
    I was immaculate in my leveling and z offset tuning.
    Filament would stutter, not forming consistent lines, would not adhere to the buildplate without lots of glue

    I wondered if the over abundance of glue caused the spottiness?

    Is there a way to adjust the pressure place on the filament in order for it to pass more consistently through the extruder?

    I'm also more inclined that the reason is the amount of glue

    According to the web page, the range for the nozzle temperature for Coex PLA (not other exotic filaments) is 215 to 235 degrees C. Your temperature of 245 waves a red flag to me.

    Try lowering the print temp and leveling the bed

    Consider to attach the STL file you are using. This will provide for more information than the photo provides.
