Heated blue tape

Recommended Posts

Hi,

could not find an answer to this probably earlier asked question.

So, to avoid warping and to have a sometimes prefered non-shiny smooth surface at the buttom, does it help to print PLA on a layer of heated blue tape?

If so what is a good temperature to start with.

Thanks in advance,

greengecko

A heated bed with blue tape works like a charm. But you need to be sure not to press the PLA into the tape as you do with a cold bed with tape, else you will rip up the tape in notime.

Heated bed temperature for PLA is around 70C, but depending on your bed you need to experiment a bit.
