UPET (CPE) Warping Badly?

Recommended Posts

Posted · UPET (CPE) Warping Badly?

Ive been using PLA for the most part of printing, but now i need a slightly stronger part and Im trying to use this Neon Green UPET or CPE as they call it on the ultimaker website, but about a quarter into the print one side starts warping uncontrollably and the print gets disoriented. Can anyone tell me how to fix this issue?

Im printing at 240 C at 45mm/sec with my printbead at 60c.

use a couple drops of CA glue, spread out thin with a razor blade. Fixed all my issues with adhesion. (ABS or otherwise.) ;)

Just search these forums for ABS juice, hairspray and glue stick. There are loads of methods that will make your prints stick, and everyone swears by their method. I swear *at* my method, but that's a different story.
