Hi Fredhi,

Welcome to the forum :)

First thing to check is the level of the build plate.

Yout first layer must be squished on the platform. If the first layer doesn't stick well and the layers are "rounded" then your buildplate is to low.

If the first layer is almost transparent then it's to high.

What printer do you have? Assuming you have an Ultimaker 2 you can fine tune the level of the plate during the print of the first layer (best when printing the brim or the skirt).

You can also apply the some glue that was sent with the printer. Put some on the glass and apply it smoothly on the glass with a slightly wet cloth.

Maybe some pictures could help, and tell us what material and settings you are using!

I hope you understand everything i write :)

Problem with ABS is that it will retract a lot, that's why it's difficult to print. Personnaly i don't print ABS because of this and also because it smells bad (only print in a well ventilated room).

I prefer to use XT filaments from Colorfabb for prints that require strength

Yes XT is a type of material. XT, PET and CPE are all very similar.

Ultimaker supply CPE

If you try to bend PLA it will break but you can bend XT a lot more before it will break.

It also has a higher Glass transition temp which means that you prints can withstand higher temps. if you leave it in a hot car it wont warp.

ABS is more difficult to print than PLA. They are almost opposite materials where PLA likes to be cold ABS likes to be warm. My advise use PLA to start with, as you noticed...

Use colorfabb XT if you need more temperature resistant parts. Only after that think about ABS.

I print ABS with 260 degrees (this is hot it will deform your teflon part in half a roll of ABS, my observation and that is why I use a E3D full metal hotend) and my bed at 110 and a good glue stick or ABS slurry. And always use a brim for ABS. Also note ABS shrinks so it can wrap and pull off the bed. So when you have been able to keep ABS stick to the bed getting it off can cause issues again. I once chipped my glass pretty badly when the ABS cooled off.

Keeping ABS warm in a covered machine also helps fighting wrapping, but you have to be careful with your stepper motors to run it covered.

So all in all don't start with ABS but start with PLA to build some experience, and then you can use ABS.

ABS is a nice material if you need to post process it. Although with PLA you can also do a lot just remember to keep it cold (I sand it or file it).

XT is not as easy to print as PLA.

It's more prone to Stringing and layer adhesions issues. Can have some warping but not to bad

It similar properties as ABS but no smell, it's also meant to be food safe and recyclable.

there are many debates about what is hazardous to health and environmentally friendly with all filaments.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
