How much does CPE shrink?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How much does CPE shrink?

Hi guys,

I'm trying to print a logocap that should fit on a moulded product.

When I bought my Ultimaker 2 extended I got PLA, ABS and CPE-filament.

Printing with PLA works fine to me, but when I try to print the exact same product with CPE I got a lot of shrink.

Are you guys familiar with this problem?

Can I just resize the product when I know the amount of shrink or is there a better solution?

Thanks in advance

    Hi @Plnt,

    welcome to the forums! :)

    How do you mean shrink? Like warping or did it come out in a very different size?

    If it is warping, or somewhat related I would like to suggest you read the following pages. If you want to know exactly how to use CPE please check out the resource pages on how to print CPE. We also have resource pages of other materials!

    Good luck and let us know how it goes!
