ABS not sticking build plate.


Recommended Posts

Posted · ABS not sticking build plate.

Tried switching from PLA to ABS. No matter what i do the filament will not stick to the plate. i have tried using glue, worked less than the bare plate, used hairspray, worked but the edges always flared up, even with a brim, any supported edges just fly up off the plate about 2 hours into the print. Ive even obtained a top secret build plate that the design company uses and it still wont stick. The nozzle gets up to 230 just fine but the plate takes forever to get to 110 and then immediately drops down to 100 after the print starts. Why is this not working?

    Thats odd Ive had more issue with the pla not sticking.

    you could try...


    really thick construction paper

    -no glue

    -make sure to get it flat!

    -glue to build plate with hand washable glue

    - when you are done rinse the part of the build plate paper and all

    2.)Slow your print down and heat it up

    and or

    overheat during first pass

    and or

    slow down the first few passes

    and or

    overlap (40%ish) the first pass

    and or

    make sure that there is at least a 20 second gap between layers
