I just got an Anet A8 and I'm pretty happy with it except for one small detail:

First layers of a print

All my prints start like this. I tried to :

  • pre-heat the printer ❌
  • add a smaller height of the first layer ❌

I’m kinda new to this and i did not find a correct answer to my problem so here’s my Cura configuration:

I think your issue is bed leveling.

I recently got my Anet A8 and the biggest kill for my print quality is bed leveling. If its too far from the nozzle, I get something like your picture. You might want to try the paper test where you manually move the nozzle to each corner of the bed and adjust the bed till the paper cannot move freely between the bed and nozzle.
