H i all

I'm Fairley new to 3d printing and after getting an Ultimaker Extended 2+ from ultimaker GB this year and with lots of help from Shaun Pullford i have manage to produce my objects but had one problem.

This was gluing 4mm flat sections together end to end, after many failed attempts i have got it

.

.

The Glue is Loctite 401

i smear a layer to both items then glue together holding them in place for 24 hours with strong dukt tape then hey presto like one sollid piece, i just have to sand the slight ridge that is formed.

Hope this helps someone.

All the best you printers

kev.

Also Acrylic glue works well for PLA as it slightly melts the surfaces together.

You can use Acetone for ABS.

    I've used Araldite, it's a two part epoxy resin. You have to mix it up for each use but you have time to align the parts. The thinner the epoxy layer the better.
