  1. My problem is, This is the most expensive printer that we have bought for the company to use for making production ABS parts. Its supposed to be top of the line stuff, but it wont hold a build temperature. I have 2 Makerbot replicator 2X, an Airwolf HD2X, a Prusa i3 mK something... and none of those need to have an enclosed space to make ABS, and they are all significantly cheaper. Im just at a loss as to why they wouldnt build it to make abs right out of the box...
  2. So if I were to cover the printer and get an enviromental case or housing to seal it up a bit, that will obviously keep the air inside a more consistent temp, but how will that keep the build plate temp from falling? The printer is supposed to upkeep the temperature to what I set it to and it isnt...
  3. Hi All, Recently my boss got a UM2+ for work projects, and we have been printing things recently in PLA, just kind of getting a feel for the printer and how it prints and works and such. Today we tried going to printing ABS on the printer, but I cant seem to get the prints to stick to the build plate. I am using a brim, and an adhesion modifier called wolfbite. We have had good luck with wolfbite on our previous printers. As the print was going, I was watching the buildplate temperature, and noticed that 1) it takes a long time to get to our desired build plate temp of 110C (We have had good success using this temp with our filament and getting prints to stay down), and 2) when the printer does get going after taking forever to warm the plate, it doesnt seem to hold that temp. It slowly works it way down to about 85C and just hangs out there, and then the filament shrinks and curls off of the bed till it comes off. Is there a reason it takes forever to get hot, and why it wont seem to hold the temperature? I cant sent the build temp in cura when i select the UM2+, so I have to manually set it once I start the print. Is there a setting somewhere that I dont know about? Thank You!
