Stop print warping.

Recommended Posts

To prevent print warping use PrintBite from 3DFilaprint.

since using this addintion to the print plate I have not had any warped prints.

No glue is needed, even for ABS.

As long as the base plate is hot (100 Deg) the print will stick

once cool the print releases cleanly.

I am using the raft with a 5/8 mm margin for platform adhesion.

One more thing, you still need to clean the build plate with acetone on a regular basis,

say after 10 prints or if you see the print lifting.

Wipe with kitchen towel wet with acetone and then wipe with a dry kitchen towel.

this should restore the printbite.

    • "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.
