Unfortunately, there are so many different ways to describe the same phenomenon that it can be difficult to search. Your "warping" is almost certainly a lack of adhesion to the print bed. There are dozens of posts about that issue. This post has links to some of the best posts. viewtopic.php?f=16&t=7033

If you could, post a picture if what you are getting. As Jay said - lots of different potential solutions to that one word.

If you're talking about corners lifting from the bed - as Jay said, lots of posts about that too, but the thing that worked great for me (when printing with PLA on my SimpleXL 2014), is blue painters tape thoroughly wiped down with rubbing alcohol.
