yes, make sure to preheat the building plate to prevent warping

It is likely raft is lifting because the platform height is not set close enough to the print head. Should be about two sheets of copy paper space in between print head and platform.

Also, on larger prints you need to have the fan door closed completely.

Also, the platform heater on the Mini does not get hot enough to prevent warping completely, but you do need to wait until it reaches its max temperature before starting the print.

All the time. Especially while printing multiple objects. This printer works best while printing a single object in the middle of the platform. Fully heated bed, nozzle height can't be better. Tried adjusting the support raft.
Tried it with the wind barrier closed and open.
If you come across some great advice, please let me know.

Also make sure the print bed is absolutely clean, best to clean, along with the other tips :-)
