I just use a wide brim for 1st layer adhesion / bluetape / gluestick / or elmers sprays adhesive for large flat surface prints.

Re: Major Curl - ABS

If you haven't fixed the problem. I would re-calibrate you bed level , its possible , that your bed is convex and is causing and issue where the nozzle is pressing harder in the center causing the print to lift on corners. If you observe while it begins to print you should have and even layer and so...

Re: Heated bed really necessary?

Realized kinda going off course. The main thing is , its most likely already been tested , and when thinking about the issues just with abs curling makes sense that heat would just be an easy way to maintain a point where the print stays in a somewhat relaxed form and doesn't shrink. Or you have som...

Re: Heated bed really necessary?

^ I agree with that. I think bigger than anything is maintaining a constant ambient temp for abs and solid bed temp. After building some walls (cheap) and easily removable, I quit having abs curling issues.

Re: Heated bed really necessary?

Ive been printing both PLA and ABS(w/gluestick) on bluetape. Both with heated beds @ 70c mainly for the z height , I havent tried yet but Im sure ABS could print without heat , as long as you have good z height dialed in and adhesion. Using the blue-tape saves me from having to clean the bed and why...

Re: Cura 14.03 Wow!

The green vase looks more "finished" but the purple seems to just look better because of its color and the way it shines. I agree. Here some images of the Radiator support. And my car. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v129/ProZaC333/DSC04618_zpse11797aa.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/alb...

Had to put a stop to it , the extruder was making a jumping noise , notice it was retracting with violance and though I help it through the problem it began to stop feeding. Thermal Creep im thinking. So im going to fix it , and feed in some of this ABS Florescent green looking stuff.

Re: Cura 14.03 Wow!

Biggest issue is that Z-Hop is limited to moves with retraction, this is an issue because Cura uses a "comb" algorithm, i.e. it follows perimeters in order to avoid crossing perimeters inside of an island. This can result in 2 distinct issues, the first is the hotend tearing small perimet...
