Help with First prints

 

These are my first prints off my just built MK3S+.  Square is 1 layer height I use for calibration for Live Z.  I have live Z dialed in not too close or too far, but lots of artifacts on first layer as you can see.  The batarang is right off the SD card.  Both were printed on the textured bed sheet using the PLA that came with the printer.  Any ideas why 1st layer is so rough?  I have the Live Z so I have the right amount of squish at -1.775.  If I got to 1.69the lines start to separate .  1.825 I start to get lizard skin because the nozzle is too close.  So I know I have live Z dialed in.  What other suggestions do you have for what I can do to improve first layer?  The first time startup completed successfully and it says that everything is parallel, no skew.  I am using the 7X7 Calibration

Here is the backside of the prints. Yes I have done the standard calibration.

There are some patterns there that look like the effects of fingerprints on the print sheet.  Give the sheet a thorough clean and try again.

Cheerio,

I have cleaned the sheet with alcohol before I did these prints.  These lines are very rough and textured.
